Another intersting match for online betting is our tennis pick for today: Bernarda Pera vs Jana Cepelova at WTA – SINGLES: Charleston (USA), clay.
Considering Cepelova’s poor form, the debutante will start as the slight favorite against the former finalist. Pera has a 9-3 record against Slovakian players on the ITF circuit (3-0 in 2017), but this will be her first such meeting on tour.
Bernarda Pera Prediction
Bernarda Pera will play her first-ever WTA Premier tournament with a direct entry into the main draw. It is partly possible due to her surprising third-round run at the Australian Open (as a lucky loser), where she scored her first top 10 win over Johanna Konta.
Pera had a sensational clay season on the ITF circuits last year. She amassed a total of 35 wins on the surface, which earned her two ITF titles (from seven finals), including a $75,000 at Olomouc, where she defeated Kristyna Pliskova.
The 23-year-old Croatian-born American, debuting at Charleston, is one win away from making her top 100 debut.

Jana Cepelova News
Jana Cepelova has a positive memory of Charleston as it was here in 2014 she reached her first and so far only WTA final, by upsetting the world #1 Serena Williams, as a debutante and world #78. The American was on a 28-match long clay streak at the time.
However, in the following two seasons, she hasn’t been able to advance beyond the second round here at Charleston and did not participate in the 2017 edition.
The current world #116, Cepelova, has won just one main draw match in the season (def. Witthoeft at Budapest). Last month, she played in the qualifying rounds of Indian Wells and Miami but failed to win more than one match in each of them.
