Match Predict – Handicap (+5) games for Bondar
Mertens comes to the start of the tournament in Toronto after disappointing performances in Prague and Washington. She is not in great shape. She has been most successful on clay, but given her sub-optimal form, Anna can put up a good fight today and not lose with a big handicap.
Total Games – Over 20
Mertens has looked unconvincing in recent tournaments. Thus, in Elise’s eight previous matches, more than 20 games were played.

In 2022, Anna Bondar made the most of her success on clay. Her best results on clay were at tournaments in Karlsruhe, Rabat and Budapest, where she managed to break through to the semifinals.
On hard court, since the beginning of the year, Bondar has only five wins, suffering six losses. In Toronto, Anna will play her first match on this surface after a long break. Her last match is on July 27. Then, she lost to Kristina Mladenovic (6-1, 5-7, 6-7) in the first round of the Poland Open.
Bondar has lost 7 of her last 8 meetings as an underdog.
Mertens clearly can’t take credit for her mid-season performance. She has played a total of 33 matches since the beginning of the year, only 17 of which were victories. At the same time, it is worth noting the stable results for Elise at Grand Slam tournaments. In Melbourne, Paris and London, she managed to get through to the 1/8 finals.
After Wimbledon, Mertens played two hard courts tournaments. In Prague and Washington, she left the competition immediately after the opening matches, losing to Magda Linette (3-6, 6-2, 2-6) and Ludmilla Samsonova (6-7, 4-6).
Mertens can’t win the last four meetings on the open hard court.
In Bondar’s last three matches, more games have been played in the second set. We offer to bet on “Sets Scoring: 2>1” with odds of 2.28.
