Our favourite Robin Montgomery vs Victoria Azarenka predictions
The former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka is the 10th seed at the WTA Guadalajara. She is a major favourite in the opening round against the American teenager Robin Montgomery.
Victoria Azarenka 2-0 @ 1/2 (1.50)
Azarenka has been on the tour for 20 years, which is more than Mongomery’s age. This is a real chance for the teenager to make a name for herself at the WTA tour, but she does not have the needed quality to stand a chance against a player like Azarenka. The former world No. 1 will know how to handle things against the youngster and will win this match in straight sets.
First set under 9.5 games @ 1/2 (1.50)
Mongomery is still fresh among the tennis professionals and Azarenka is the toughest opponent she has ever faced. Azarenka knows how to be dominant on the court and she will set the tone early one with a quick opening set that will stay under 9.5 games in total.
