WTA Dubai betting predictions, tips & preview 2020
THE Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is looming as an intriguing WTA event, with many big names playing at the $2.7m tournament.
We’ll run you through the latest WTA news and give you our free picks and odds analysis ahead of the February 17 start date.
The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is notable for the return to the court of former world no.1 Kim Clijsters, who had originally slated in last month’s Australian Open for her return.
Clijsters, 36, has not played since the 2012 US Open as she focused on her young family, but the powerful right-hander announced last year she was returning.
But Clijsters faces an uphill battle to add to her trophy collection in Dubai with an all-star cast attending that includes 2019 Wimbledon champion Simona Halep, US Open winner Bianca Andreescu, defending Dubai champion Belinda Bencic and this year’s Australian Open winner Sofia Kenin.
The WTA Dubai event will run from February 17-22, and will then be followed by the men’s ATP event, which will run from the February 24-29.
Read on for all the latest WTA Dubai tips and odds analysis.

WTA Dubai tips, predictions & best bets
As always we have cast our eye over the contenders and given you our WTA Dubai predictions.
WTA Dubai winner tip 2020
Sofia Kenin upstaged Ash Barty at the Australian Open, before defeating Garbine Muguruza in the final. The World no.7 is only 21 years of age and looks to be the heir apparent to Serena Williams as the top US player, despite being born in Russia. We are predicting Kenin’s impressive form to continue in Dubai and her to win the tournament. Kenin is also at the juicy odds of 11.00 with Betway.com.
How will Kim Clijsters go?
Geez, how long is a piece of string. It’s worth remembering Clijsters won the US Open in 2009 in just her third tournament into her comeback. We think Clijsters will have left no stone unturned in her latest effort, but we’re also gun-shy in backing her because we know what it’s like to be 36.
Best bet: WTA Dubai 2020 betting tips
We really like Elina Svitolina to defeat Garbine Muguruza in the opening round of the WTA Dubai Championships. Svitolina, who defeated Muguruza at the recent Australian Open, is outsider at 2.25, which we think is just too juicy to pass up.
