Victoria Azarenka is back playing on the professional tennis circuit as the Belarusian superstar and she has made it to the second round of Wimbledon. The former world number 1 will be taking on another former world number 1, Karolína Plíšková. This is a game between two of the best tennis players in the world so we should be very well entertained.
Karolína Plíšková is the number 7 seed at Wimbledon and she will look at this tournament as a chance to win a grand slam. The Czech superstar has never won a grand slam and has never made it past the second round at Wimbledon. This is very disappointing for a player as good as Karolína Plíšková and I am sure that she will want to change that. The past few months have not been great for Karolína Plíšková as she has not managed to make any deep runs in tournaments. Her French Open campaign was very poor and she will know that she has to improve. Karolína Plíšková’s first-round match looked promising with the Czech superstar looking confident and in good form. She will need to play well in this game since she is taking on a top player in Victoria Azarenka.
On the other side of the coin, Victoria Azarenka will look to beat one of the best players in the world and announce her return. Victoria Azarenka was once the best player but after her break, she has never been the same. 2018 has not been amazing for Victoria Azarenka but it is clear that she is improving. At the age of 28, Victoria Azarenka still has time to return to her former greatness and winning a grand slam will be a great way to do that. This will be a tough clash for the player from Belarus because Karolína Plíšková is an exceptionally talented player.
This should be a very close game but I am going to predict that Karolína Plíšková wins. While Azarenka has the ability to beat any player, she is not at the level to beat Karolína Plíšková in 2018. We are getting a great price to wager on Karolína Plíšková to win so that is the bet which I am going to suggest we make.
