Victoria Azarenka (10/17) Heather Watson (32/21) See the Latest Odds
Belarusian tennis superstar Victoria Azarenka will be in action in the WTA Indian Wells tournament. The former world number 1 will open her campaign against British tennis player Heather Watson. Both players will hope to play well and make deep runs in this tournament meaning that we should get a good tennis match.
Victoria Azarenka hasn’t played since Wimbledon last year due to a custody battle over her child. This issue seems to be over and now Victoria Azarenka is back on the tour. The multiple Grand Slam champion is one of the most talented players in the world but it will be interesting to see how she deals after such a long absence from the game. It is important to note that Victoria Azarenka beat Heather Watson in her last tournament and that the win over Watson is still the last time that Azarenka has won a professional tennis match.

Heather Watson will hope to use Victoria Azarenka’s absence to her advantage and try to win this game. Watson is ranked as the second best player in the UK and she will hope that her skills are good enough to beat one of the former best players in the world. Heather Watson will try and drag this game on as long as possible since she is much more fit than Victoria Azarenka.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Heather Watson wins this match. The British player has been improving lately and I think she will be good enough to beat a Victoria Azarenka who has not played much lately. We are getting a good enough price to bet on Heather Watson win this match outright and due to that reason, this is the wager which I am going to suggest for this game.
