Very weak tournament in Copenhagen this year. I mean how else to explain the fact that one of these two players will play at the end in the semi-finals. Kaia Kanepi and Jelena Jankovic are both players in very bad form and if nothing else it will be safe bet on Barthel or Kerber in semi-final no matter of fact who will be oponnet there, Serbian player or player from Estonia.
For today, IMO Jankovic has better chances to win. Both of them were losing on previous tournaments in first rounds, but here in Copenhagen seems to me that Jankovic was slightly better. Both had too easy oponents in first two rounds and Jankovic used this to win both times easily, while Kanepi against player like Times Babos, needed third set tie-break to reach quarter finals.
In the past Kanepi was more successful in head to head, but there were no recent matches and Jankovic won the last one.
In worst case this should be match with equal chances for win, so everything above 2.00 on Jankovic is good while this 2.22 from Pinnacle IMO is very nice value.
