Victoria Azarenka v Sofia Kenin Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the two women.
Azarenka Clawing her Way Back
Two-time Australian Open winner and former world number one Azarenka has endured a difficult past few years, as she has become embroiled in a bitter custody battle over the fate of her son with her ex-boyfriend, which has forced her to miss many tournaments, and plummet down the world rankings.
2019 has not started well for her, with first round defeats in Auckland, as well as in the Australian Open, whilst she lost to Petra Kvitová in St. Petersburg.
However, she showed glimpses of her real class in the first round here, thrashing the second seed Danielle Collins in the first round, and then breezing past German Tatjana Maria to set up the meeting with Kenin.
Kenin Looking to Make More Progress
Moscow-born Kenin has made steady progress in the women’s game over the past year, breaking into the world’s top 100 for the first time in 2018, and reaching her first senior semi-final in Mallorca.
2019 has started even better for her, as she claimed her maiden ATP tour title in Hobart, beating top seed Caroline Garcia along the way. Now at an all-time high ranking of 37, and seeded fifth for this tournament, she will know that she has an excellent chance of another final this week if she can get past Azarenka.
Azarenka v Kenin Predictions & Tips
Despite her lower ranking and the fact that she is not seeded for this tournament, Azarenka will start as favourite for the match. That reflects the fact that she has the greatest experience and track record in tournaments. Kenin should not be underestimated – she is clearly a rising force in the game. However, Azarenka may just have too much ring craft for her this time.
Tip: Azarenka to win two sets to love: 6/5 (bet365)
