Tereza Martincova and Victoria Azarenka meet in the second round of the 2022 tennis Citi Open.

Tereza Martincova is coming off a 3 sets win over Xinyu Wang that took 26 games to decide. In the victory, Martincova won 62 percent of her first serve points and 35 percent of her second serve points. Martincova won 57 percent of her total service points and converted on 4 of her 18 break points. Martincova got 80 percent of her first serves in play and saved 10 of her 15 break points. The victory gave Martincova her first 3 sets victory since May. Martincova looks to win back-to-back matches for the first time since Nottingham a couple of months ago. Martincova has split her last 10 matches on hard court.

Victoria Azarenka is coming off a straight set win over Dayana Yastremska that took 16 games to decide. In the victory, Azarenka won 77 percent of her first serve points and 50 percent of her second serve points. Azarenka won 63 percent of her total service points and converted on 6 of her 11 break points. Azarenka got 50 percent of her first serves in play and saved 7 of her 9 break points. Azarenka looked respectable given it was her first match in 2 and a half months. Azarenka looks to win at least 2 matches in each of her last 4 tournaments. Azarenka has split her last 10 matches on hard court.

Azarenka won the only match against Martincova, which came in the 2021 US Open. The match was decided in straight sets and 16 games.

Give Martincova credit for winning her opening match, but we can’t ignore she entered this tournament on a 5-match losing streak. Martincova also had double-digit break chances, which won’t fly against somebody like Azarenka. As Ive said before, this is some of the best tennis Azarenka has played since her absence when she was pregnant. 

Give me Azarenka, and I’ll take her in straight sets to shave the price down.
