Top-Seeded Maria Sakkari takes on Elisabetta Cocciaretto as the first round of the Bad Homburg Open continues on Monday. 

The Greek native enters the tournament trying to shake off a 3-match losing slide but the line setters are placing Sakkari as the favorite at -170. 

Italian native Cocciaretto is fresh off an appearance at the Birmingham semis, and EJ Garr’s Maria Sakkari vs Elisabetta Cocciaretto prediction features odds at -104

Maria Sakkari vs Elisabetta Cocciaretto (WTA Bad Homburg) Prediction: A Mediterranean Showndown in Germany

  • Prediction: Cocciaretto +2.5 Games Handicap
  • Best Odds: -104
  • Bookmaker: Pinnacle
  • Stakes: 3/10

Odds as of 7:00 am UK Time June 24, 2024. Odds may now differ.

Maria Sakkari carries the #1 seed at Bad Homberg but we’ll see how the Greek native uses it as motivation as she struggles to get in form.

Sakkari was listed as -225 favorited in Rome against Azarenka, and she didn’t even win a set in the fourth round against her. Maria was a -600 favorite against Gracheva in her first match at the French Open, and once again it resulted in a loss.

Sakkari met Azarenka again in Berlin last week to start the grass season, and in her opening match, the Greek flopped in straight sets. 

If that is supposed to convince anyone that Sakkari has a lick of confidence, I must be watching another sport. I am sorry but I do not have it to suggest you put your hard-earned cash on anything Maria Sakkari is doing.

Cocciaretto is gaining confidence from her run in Birmingham including wins over Ostapenko and Sloane Stephens playing the underdog role in each game.

The +3 Handicap toward Elisabetta is a little juiced at -130, so I will pocket the +2.5 games and hope the Italian provides the upset win over a struggling Sakkari. 


Sakkari is 0 – 3 in her last 3 matches and was the favorite taking each loss. 

Sakkari is 27 – 20 on the grass in her career and finished the clay swing 7 – 4 with two massive disappointing results including the French Open. 


Cocciaretto was 3 – 0 in Birmingham before getting bounced by Putineseva in the semifinal to kick off her grass season. 

The Italian has only competed in 13 grass matches in her career and has an 8 – 5 record.


Monday’s clash in Germany will mark the first time Sakkari and Cocciaretto will go head-to-head against each other on any surface.
