Tennis | Victoria Azarenka vs Lucie Šafářová
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The WTA event in Mallorca has reached the round of 16 which sees former world number 1 and grand slam champion, Victoria Azarenka, in action. She takes on Czech superstar Lucie Šafářová is a game which every tennis fan should be looking forward to.

Lucie Šafářová would be disappointed by her results in the French Open and will be desperate to make things right and win this tournament. Lucie Šafářová is 31 years old and at the peak of her career so she will want to cash in on her talent so I am expecting her to put up a really good fight in this tournament. Lucie Šafářová has won WTA tournaments before and she will want to show that she can still do it. Beating Victoria Azarenka will be a huge step in doing that.

On the other side of the court, Victoria Azarenka will want to show that she is a top player. The former champion has not been at the top of the tennis world for some time due to family reason but now that she is playing again, I am expecting her to show her talent once again. Victoria Azarenka was eliminated in the first round of the competition at the French Open and while that would have been greatly disappointing for her, she should be fresh and can show us what she can do.

Taking everything into consideration, I think that Lucie Šafářová wins this game. She is the better player at this moment of time and while neither player is impressive the critics, she is the better of the two. We are getting a good enough price to wager on Lucie Šafářová to win this game and as a result, it is the bet which I am going to be suggesting.

 

Pick:
Lucie Šafářová
