Azarenka vs Sasnovich: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
On October 12, two Belarusian players, Victoria Azarenka and Aliaksandra Sasnovich, will play against each other at Indian Wells. Our expert prepared a prediction for this match.
Before the start of Indian Wells tournament Victoria Azarenka had an unsuccessful Chicago tournament. In that competition Belarusian player recorded a victory over Baptista (6:2, 4:6, 6:3), but then withdrew herself from the tournament. So far Azarenka has no health issues at Indian Wells tournament.
First match against Linette was not an easy one, but Polish player withdrew herself from the match during the second set. In the match against Kvitova Belarusian player put up a better performance in crucial moments (7:5, 6:4). In that match Azarenka lost four games at her serve and her first serve was not so good - hit percentage was only at 52%.
Aliaksandra Sasnovich is having the best season in her career. 100th WTA player eliminated two winners of Grand Slam tournaments, Emma Raducanu (6:2, 6:4) and Simona Halep (7:5, 6:4), from Indian Wells tournament. As Sasnovich said in an interview, she already bought a ticket home before the match against Halep. But now she doesn't need that ticket, because she will fight against her compatriot, Victoria Azarenka.
We should note that Raducanu made too many mistakes in her match against Sasnovich, even in simple plays. Halep fought until the end, won a number of games on the receive, but Sasnovich performed better in crucial moments of the match.
In four out of five most recent matches of Azarenka more games were played in the first set than in the second one
This bet won in three out of five most recent matches of Sasnovich
Aliaksandra Sasnovich is looking great at Indian Wells so far. But we can't say that Victoria Azarenka is currently at the peak of her form. She was not looking good in the first set of the match against Linette and her serve in the match against Halep was inconsistent. We think that Sasnovich is underrated by bookmakers, so we offer to get advantage of it.
Our prediction - Sasnovich to win with a handicap of (+5) games
Prediction: Handicap (+5) for Sasnovich
