WTA Lyon Open Betting Tips
The Lyon Open (For sponsorship reasons also known as the Open 6eme Sens- Métropole de Lyon), is a women’s indoor hardcourt tennis tournament which takes place in the first week of March. The competition takes place in both singles and doubles format.
The 2020 edition was its inaugural tournament, and due to this its status remains relatively low on the WTA Tour. It has equivalent tournaments in Washington, Hong Kong, and Korea. The lack of top ranked players at the tournament due to its novelty means that WTA Lyon betting offers fantastic odds on lower-ranked tennis players, which can be found at EagleBet betting partners’ websites.
WTA Lyon Open 2020 Edition:
Lyon Open Singles
American Sofia Kenin, ranked fifth in the world, was first seed at the 2020 Lyon Open, which was generally avoided by many top players. Second seed, France’s Kristina Mladenovic, was ranked 39th in the world, whilst eighth seed was ranked 85th, demonstrating the wide-ranging quality available at the tournament, which is one of many reasons that it makes a great option for online betting.
Despite the seeding, by the round of sixteen, three of the top eight seeds had been defeated by unseeded opponents, unpredictability which can only aid online betting. With EagleBet listed and trusted sportsbooks offering odds on outright winners, winners of sets and how many individual games each player will win, there is a market for everyone wanting to bet on tennis.
Despite these upsets, the semi-finals of the Lyon open singles featured three seeded players, although only one of these reached the final. The final saw first seed Sofia Kenin take on underdog Anna-Lena Friedsam, who had herself come through a three set semi-final against seventh seed Daria Kasatkina, ranked 73rd in the world. Despite taking Kenin to three sets, Friedsam could not prevent the American from claiming victory, ultimately losing 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.
Lyon Open Doubles
Anna-Lena Friedsam was prominent in both the singles and the doubles sections of the Lyon Open, being seeded first for the doubles section with her partner Mandy Minella. However, the pair were surprisingly knocked out in the first round of the competition, losing in three sets (4-6, 6-4, 6-10) to Laura Parr and Julia Wachaczyk.
This pair were the surprise package of the entire tournament, comprehensively winning their semi-final against the all Russian duo Vitalia Diatchenko and Natela Dzalamidze 6-3 6-1 in just 55 minutes.
In the final itself, Parr and Wachaczyk completed the underdog story by defeating dutch pair Lesley Pattinama Kerkhov and Bibiane Schoofs. Completely against the odds, she completed the victory in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4, and in doing so became the first doubles champions of the Lyon Open.
