Pennetta vs Azarenka by 20legend
Azarenka did beat Koehler 2-0 in the first round (6-1, 6-2), but she picked up an injury during the match in the start of the second set. She was able to continue after some medical attention, but it is an interesting scenario to watch in today’s game.
Head-to-Head: It is 1-1 between these two , as Pennetta won the latest meeting on hardcourt back in 2011.
This analysis is interesting only because of Azarenka’s knee and not because I think that Pennetta is better than Azarenka. Even if the injury is not so bad, it would definatley mean something in a mentally perspective as she could possibly be more careful when she has do long runs and quick movements. I would therefore say that Pennetta do have a bigger chance than usually here, but Pennetta must be very aggressive and force Azarenka to run as much as possible. Azarenka’s bad experience in her first round must have frightened her a bit, and it is possible to defend a very low stake on Pennetta to take advantage out of this. This is very “thin” information to defend the bet itself, so I recommend very low stakes here.
Important: It is a risk that Azarenka could retire during the match here. Therefore it would be wise to choose Unibet as the bookie. Even if the odds are lower than other bookies, you will win on this bet if the just one set is completed during the match. So if Azarenka loses the first set and decides to retire in the second set, the bet will still count as won. My pick will therefore be Pennetta to win to 6.60@Unibet.
