Maria Sharapova (1/4) Magda Linette (39/11) See the Latest Odds
The WTA tournament in Tianjin will be treated to some lovely tennis as Russian superstar, Maria Sharapova will take the court. She will be taking on Magda Linette in a game of tennis that I am sure we will all enjoy watching.
Magda Linette is a 25-year-old tennis player from Poland who won her first round match by coming from one set down. This is a player that has been around the tennis circuit for some time now and as a result, she will have faced many top quality opponents. That being said, Maria Sharapova is a different kind of player and that is something that will cause the Polish tennis player a lot of trouble in this game.

Maria Sharapova was out of the game for a long time and the Russian superstar is now in a position where she wants to prove a point to everyone that talked against her. This is a game where she is expected to win with some ease and I think that will be the case. Sharapova is a much better player and with the heat which is present is Tianjin, I think she will also prove what superior fitness can result in.
As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a great price on Maria Sharapova to win this game and as a result we have to avoid that bet. That being said, we are getting a good price on Maria Sharapova to win in straight sets and as a result that is the best bet which we can make for this game. The under 2.5 sets is also a decent bet but not as good as the other bet.
