Tennis | Petra Martic vs Caroline Wozniacki
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Danish superstar, Caroline Wozniacki will play Petra Martic from Croatia in the second round of the 2018 WTA China Open.

Petra Martic beat Barbora Strycova in straight sets in the first round of the tournament. In the victory, Martic showed exceptional skill with her serve as she only allowed Strycova break her serve once in the entire match. In addition to that, Martic also received well breaking her opponents serve well to ensure a dominant win. Martic has been in good form over the past few months winning the WTA 125K in Chicago earlier this year. That being said, this is set to be a much tougher challenge for Petra Martic as she is playing one of the best in the world. Martic will need to play at her best if she wishes to compete with Caroline Wozniacki.

On the other side of the court, Caroline Wozniacki looked good in her opening round win as she beat Belinda Bencic in straight sets. Wozniacki broke her opponents serve on 6 occasions and ensure it was a comfortable win for the Danish superstar. It has been a tough few months for Wozniacki as she had failed to make any deep runs in tournaments, although after her first-round win, she looks to be back in form and hitting the ball well. Caroline Wozniacki won this tournament in 2010 and with such a good record at this venue, she will be a hard opponent to fact.

These two players have met 4 times in the past with Wozniacki winning all 4 matches.

All in all, I see Caroline Wozniacki winning this match. Wozniacki has a great record at this venue and with a 4-0 record against Martic, she will be confident about winning again. Wozniacki is the better player and I see her winning this match.

 

Pick:
