Tennis DFS Picks & Expert Predictions Today for Charleston Open 4/5/22

We jump right into the thick of it with 25 matches for this tennis dfs slate on DraftKings for Tuesday from all over the globe. Monday was loaded with a lot of matches from the woman’s side which led to some interesting outcomes and some big time outputs with a litany of sweeps to some surprise. Today’s slate has a handful more men’s matches which usually concentrates ownership with their better ace upside and overall predictability (one hopes). It should be a great slate so let’s make some picks for our lineups.

DraftKings Fantasy Tennis DFS Picks Today

Fade Pick: Ekaterine Gorgodze ($11,000)

Opponent: Yuliana Monroy

Similar to yesterday we do have what one may call a lack of talent overall as Ekaterine Gorgodze is pacing this slate at $11,000 even. The 120th ranked player (somehow) in the world comes in as a near 13:1 favorite against the very inexperienced Yuliana Monroy – one career WTA match (0-1). But again like yesterday with Rebecca Peterson, Gorgodze has not exactly been in form in 2022 winning just 6 of 14 matches and has not been on the red dirt since February. Clay is the great neutralizer of talent which should also help the very green Monroy who did win a match here last year in her home country.

Gorgodze should absolutely win this match but at this price she is certain to come short of any optimal performance with so many upsets certain to happen on a 25-match slate. I’d expect something similar to Peterson’s score yesterday which just won’t cut it for taking down any tennis dfs gpp’s.

Top Tennis Pick Today: Belinda Bencic ($9,300)

Opponent: Xiyu Wang

Belinda Bencic seems to getting slighted once again by Draftkings facing Xiyu Wang at what looks to be a misprice in comparison to her odds. The world no.21 looked very strong in Miami sweeping each of her first four opponents before losing to Naomi Osaka in the semi’s in three sets. Bencic, like many in the WTA, is a very streaky player but when she is playing well she can defeat anyone as she showed in 2019 with more wins versus the top 10 than anyone. Her game is very dependent on error prevention and not committing double faults which is perfectly evident from her previous run which saw her post tennis dfs scores of 75+ in all four wins. Wang has struggled in her career on the WTA with just 40% win rate and has seen her game fall of a bit even more going 4-7 (w-l) in 2021 and has lost two of three matches in 2022.

Bencic could be a letdown candidate but thankfully for her she faces an opponent who has little to no confidence as she couldn’t even get through qualifying last week in Miami. At an extremely friendly price she will likely be popular in gpp’s which is less than ideal but makes her an ideal fit for any cash game lineup. That said, her upside is also better than most as well with her ability to hit aces at over a 5% clip which isn’t frequent from the woman’s tour.
