Spanish superstar, Garbiñe Muguruza, is the third seed in the women’s draw at Wimbledon. The former world number 1 has made it to the second round of Wimbledon where she will be facing Alison Van Uytvanck from Belgium. Both players will see this match as a big occasion so we should be able to witness a good game of tennis.
Alison Van Uytvanck has been having decent results in the past few months in both singles and doubles tennis. The Belgian has won WTA titles before but has yet to make a big impact in a major tournament. Alison Van Uytvanck opened her Wimbledon campaign is amazing fashion as she dominated her opponent to win in straight sets. That win would have given her tons of confidence which she will bring into this game. This will be a much harder game for Alison Van Uytvanck since she is facing one of the best female tennis players in the world.
On the other hand, Garbiñe Muguruza will want to win this match quickly and easily. The Spaniard is hoping to make it deep in the tournament and possibly lifting the trophy. Winning quickly in early round matches will ensure that she is fresh at the later stages where the top players will remain. The World number 3 won in straight sets in her opening round match and if that is added to the fact that she made it to the semi-finals of the French Open, we can see that she is in great form. While the second round match should be harder than the opening match for Garbiñe Muguruza, I see her winning comfortably.
All in all, I see Garbiñe Muguruza winning. The Spaniard is way too good to lose to an unseeded player and while Alison Van Uytvanck has been impressive, I don’t see any other result but a Garbiñe Muguruza win. We are getting a decent enough price to wager on Garbiñe Muguruza. This should be seen as a banker bet since I don’t see it losing.
