This week, the men’s tour is scattered across North America, Europe, and Africa, while the main women’s tournament is in Charleston, South Carolina.
With the spring switch from hardcourt to clay, it’s wise for bettors to search for historically strong clay players who may have struggled through the winter hardcourt season. Their odds may be about to shift.

Charleston Open Draw
This year’s Charleston Open features American Jessica Pegula as the No. 1 seed coming off the top of the draw.
Last year’s Charleston winner, Belinda Bencic, is the No. 4 seed. She’ll need to cut her way through an early draw of American women if she wants to get back to the finals: Lauren Davis, Caty McNally, Shelby Rogers, and Danielle Collins are all potential early foes.
Veronika Kudermetova, who won the tournament in 2021 but withdrew from the draw before the tournament last year, is the No. 5 seed this year. She could challenge Pegula in the quarterfinal if seeding holds.
One of Friday’s top quarterfinal showdowns will be No. 1 overall draw seed Jessica Pegula against No. 12 seed Paula Badosa. The nightcap is expected to be heavily competitive, with Pegula (-120) a nominal favorite over Badosa (-105).

Charleston Open Tennis Odds
I continue to be impressed by Madison Keys’ performance in the Charleston draw. As predicted, she dispatched Magda Linette on Thursday, advancing to today’s quarterfinal matchup with Daria Kasatkina.
From a tennis betting odds perspective, Keys profiles very similarly against Kasatkina. The Russian is the higher-ranked player, and she is seeded higher in this tournament. She has a historical edge over most Americans on clay.
Despite all that, Keys (-175) is fingered by the market as the favorite in this spot.
I’m interested in Badosa’s -105 odds to unseat Pegula at the top of the draw and advance to the semifinals, but Keys remains my biggest curiosity of the day.
In addition to the moneyline, I’ll go ahead and buy Keys on the game line at -2.5 (-135). There’s a -3.5 available for -105, and the straight-set win is available for +130, but I’ll take the more conservative approach for Friday.
