Former world number 1, Angelique Kerber, has been in top form recently and is looking to regain a spot as one of the top female tennis players in the world. The German superstar has been in great form over the past 12 months and is looking to further make a statement by making a deep run at Wimbledon. The German has made it to the third round of the competition on the back of some amazing wins and will be confident as she heads into her match against Naomi Osaka from Japan. Both players are very talented and capable of winning this match so we should be very well entertained.
Naomi Osaka won both her matches in straight sets and at the age of only 20, she is one of the future stars of women’s tennis. The Japanese player is currently the 18th seed and she will feel that she has a great chance to beat one of the legends of the game in Angelique Kerber. It has been a very good 12 months for Naomi Osaka as she has had some very strong results in WTA tournaments. This shows that she is a very good player. It will interesting to see if she can handle to the pressure of playing a big tournament against a big player such as Angelique Kerber.
Angelique Kerber, on the other hand, will feel no pressure since she has been in this situation many times before. The German is used to big implication games and she will know how to hand the pressure well. This will not be an easy game for Angelique Kerber since she is up against a top player in Naomi Osaka but I am sure the German will use her added experience to her advantage. I think the added experience will be enough for Angelique Kerber to get a win in this match.
We are getting a great price to wager on Angelique Kerber winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest we make.
