Odds as of August 6th at Caesars Sportsbook.
Badosa is the slight favorite heading into this match, which shouldn’t be surprising.
Kasatkina Upset Aryna Sabalenka
The Russian say herself have to piece together a comeback after she lost the first set to Sabalenka. To secure the win, Kasatkina won the last eight games to win 4-6, 7-5, 6-0.
Kasatkina’s week has been all about the upsets, and the comebacks. In her opening match, she was up against Wimbledon champion, Elena Rybakina, and went down a set, only to comeback and win. She then managed to take out American Taylor Townsend in straight sets, before setting up her quarterfinal match against Sabalenka.
She’ll now look to continue her week of upsets when she goes up against World No. 4 Badosa.
Badosa Ends Coco Gauff’s Run
In just under an hour and a half, Badosa beat Gauff 7-6(4), 6-2, to move onto the semifinals. After a tough opening match against American Elizabeth Mandlik, that almost saw Badosa go home early, she was able to bounce back and regain her confidence in her straight set win over Gauff. This will be Badosa’s fourth semifinal of the year.

Both of Kasatkina and Badosa’s previous meetings have happened earlier this year. Badosa won their first meeting during the semifinals in Sydney, as Kasatkina won in the round of 16 in Rome. Both matches were won in straight sets.
