Garbine Muguruza v Victoria Azarenka Head to Head
This will be the sixth between these two players, with Muguruza leading the H2H 3-2, however, their most recent encounter was a walkover. Their last meeting before that occurred in the quarterfinals of Rome 2020, with Muguruza winning 3-6 6-3 6-4.
Muguruza Cruises Past Petkovic
Muguruza is yet to drop a set in the championships as she eased her way past Petkovic 6-4 6-2 to reach the 3rd round. The Spaniard was able to record an impressive 75% first serve percentage, tee down 21 winners and win 15/19 points at the net to fend off the German and reach the round of 32.
The 27-year-old holds an impressive 33/13 W/L record for the year, winning 76% of her matches on the hard courts. This impressive form was evident in Dubai, where she took home the trophy to secure her 8th WTA title.
Along the way the 2-time grand slam champion navigated her way past Begu, Anisimova, Swiatek, Sabalenka, and Mertens before getting the better of Krejcikova in the final 7-6(6) 6-3.
The former world number one knows what it takes to beat her 3rd round opponent, which should fill her with confidence when approaching the encounter. A win would secure her place in the 4th round against either Krejcikova or Rakhimova.
Azarenka Impressive at the Net in Round 2
Victoria Azarenka battled past Italian Jasmine Paolini 6-3 7-6(1) in her second-round tie to keep herself alive at the US Open. The Belarusian came out on top 71% of the time when she landed the first serve and impressively won 15/15 net points, proving this was an effective tactic. 19 winners later, and Azarenka books her place in the 3rd round.
The former world one possesses a 11-4 W/L ratio for the year on the hard courts and a 21-7 W/L ratio for the year, displaying she does not take losing lightly. This year’s highlights entail 2 semi-finals for the 32-year-old in Doha and Berlin.
Doha saw Azarenka cruises to the semis without dropping a set against Kuznetsova, Siegemund, and Svitolina before having to withdraw in the semis. Berlin witnessed the 2-time slam champion defeat Petkovic, Kerber, and Pegula, before losing to Samsonova 6-4 6-2.
Azarenka has defeated the Spaniard before, so she knows she is capable of the task at hand, and finally tennis fans can witness these two clash again after Azarenka withdrew in Doha.
Muguruza v Azarenka Prediction and Tip
This match has the ability to be a thriller, with very little between the two and both in impressive form, however, Azarenka is the slight favourite to go through to the round of 16, with her backhand down-the-line between a key shot.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 11/8 (Click Here to Bet with bet365)
