Updated on June 11, 2024. Odds may now differ.

Clara Tauson and Jule Niemeier have changed plenty since their 2021 meeting in Germany. And that makes this first-round match in the Netherlands interesting. 

Tauson was only 18 when they met in that lower-level event in Germany, and Clara swept Niemeier off the court in straight sets, 6 – 4, 6 – 4.

Tauson is the favorite to win this match at about -155, although I see some books going up as high as -180 for the Denmark native to get past Niemeier. 

Whether Tauson does move on in the upper bracket to face the winner of the Linette Montgomery battle in round 2, I am not convinced it will be a repeat of their last meeting.

I don’t think Tauson can stop Niemeier from winning a set, and as I open my own BetMGM profile I see -190 on the German to win at least one set, 

Let’s be rocket scientists for a minute and discuss how Tauson is -400 and Niemeier is -180 to each win a set yet the Over 2.5 Sets prop is +138!

Yes, please! 

Niemeier has already gotten a couple of grass matches under her belt, although neither she nor Tauson enjoys this surface. Julie is 16 – 10 on this surface over her career, and she has never produced a losing record on grass in any single campaign.

Tauson on grass? Wait, you mean Clara Tauson? And we’re on grass you said, right? Seeing her favored is scary as hell on grass, and I certainly don’t think Niemeier will get trounced today.

My Tauson vs Niemeier prediction is for over 2.5 Sets.


Clara Tauson was 9 – 4 on clay and is trying to test her game on grass this season. The Dane has played only 8 matches on grass since 2018, and she was 2 – 1 last year at Wimbledon. 

Tauson has only played one match that wasn’t at Wimbledon on grass in her entire career, and she has a 3 –  5 record on this surface.  


Jule Niemeier is 16 –  10 on grass in her career, and she just competed at Surbiton earning one win against Naef before falling to Birrell.

Niemeier was 4 – 3 on grass last season making it the only surface she produced a winning record.


Tauson and Niemeier met in 2021 at a W25 event in Altenkirchen, Germany, and Clara won the match at 4 & 4. 

Tauson is ranked 65th on the WTA Tour, while Niemeier is still inside the top 100 at 91st in the world.
