The Italian Open is one of the most popular tennis tournaments. Betting on tennis is more fun and exciting in this event, as the games in Rome are played in clay. When you read this guide to tennis betting, you will find out how the material of the surface of the tennis courts matter when it comes to betting. For some tennis stars, particularly American players, playing on the dirt is quite challenging. Find out who made it, and what to expect, in the Italian Open Final updates.

The Italian Open has been in the tennis calendar since 1930. The tournament comes under the Masters 1000 series on the ATP Tour, and the WTA 1000 series on the WTA Tour. So far, the top favorites like Rafael Nadal, who win the Italian Open 10 times, and Carlos Alcaraz have been eliminated from the tournament. Novak Djokovic also failed to move past the semifinals. So there are quite a lot of underdog wins so far into the tournament.

Italian Open Final Updates

Women’s Finals

Italian Open Final UpdatesIn the women’s semifinals, top-ranked Iga Swiatek has an amazing win streak of 11 matches, something that is quite uncommon in the world of tennis. Her last match was a 6-4,6-3 win over US Open Champion Coco Gauff. This is very interesting, as it means that Swiatek has a chance to win the “Dirt Double” which is when a tennis player wins both the Madrid Open and the Italian Open back-to-back. Check your favorite sportsbooks like BetPhoenix to see the latest odds on Swiatek to win the Italian Open.

It will not be an easy feat for Swiatek, since she will be facing Aryna Sabalenka in the Final. Sabalenka beat Danielle Collins 7-5, 6-2. It is going to be an interesting final because it will be a rematch of the Madrid Final.

Men’s Finals
