Muguruza vs Kerber by Beatle
I really like this selection and going for it with great confidence. Probably with the same confidence as Muguruza, going into this match after a fantastic performance yesterday. The way she played against Ivanovic in set 2 and 3 and against Schmiedlova was simply astonishing !
They met 5 times with Kerber winning the first 3 meetings incl. the one in January (hard). Muguruza managed to defeat Kerber in both French Open and Wimbledon. All three matches this year went to a deciding set. Not sure that would be the case today since Kerber did not really impress here in Wuhan. She did not show spectacular performance against Jankovic. Then she met Giorgi who was surprisingly not up to standarts and gave away that match pretty easily. Then she met Vandeweghe in 1/4 yesterday but Coco played a lot of tennis this week incl. some marathon 3-hour matches back to back. So she retired after the first set and that was not a surprise. The courts here in Wuhan are pretty fast so Muguruza, knowing that already defeated her opponent on slower and faster courts has to bring some good game and become victorious.
Kerber is a very tough player, no doubt about that. Both players lost only to in-form players after the US Open. Both look in pretty good form right now. But I see Muguruza as a favourite here because I think she has a small edge over her opponent. She earned 1/2 entry with confidence by deafeating some very serious opponents, unlike Kerber. So I think she will also have some emotional edge in this match and a better confidence.
2-0 is an option for a more risky bet, but I guess I will just settle with a plain Muguruza victory.
