One more outrights bet. This time it is WTA Barcelona. Unlike WTA in Copenhagen where there is no strong competition and where everything should be well known, here in Barcelona there are couple very good players. Beside my first favourite Julia Goerges, those are Flavia Penneta, Francesca Schiavone, Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci. So, all Italian girls but I choose
Julia Goerges from Germany. In Goerges I believe the most. No matter this is clay court, in women's tennis I like to see girl who has strong service since IMO serv is very important in women's tennis. Player who have powerful serv can easily to dominate. Among all above, I rate Goerges as best on serv. About form I need to say that Sara Errani came here after she won title in previous tournament on clay in Acapulco. But Errani si not a player who can play good tournament after tournament, what we already could see this after Acapulco. Flavia Penneta and Francesca Schiavone surely are the most known names among these above, but they both are not constant. Pennetta was in Acapilco in final and lost to Errani while Schiavone is long time without good result and it is not clear why she is rated so high this time.
I also like very much schedule for Julia Goerges. In first match she will meet with Aravane Rezai who is on 137th WTA position and who simply can't get back to top form, while later Georges will meet Muguruza Blanco (144th on WTA). So, German girl has open door to the top 8 and later everything is possible. I believe she will use two first rounds against much weaker oponents to find best form.
Julia Goerges won two WTA titles so far. Her current ranking is 16th while the best ever was 15th. Career record on clay court is very decent 99-45. This season the best results for her were R16 on Australian Open and finals in Dubai. In Barcelona she is second seeded player and third favourite by the bookmakers. From my angle she is no.1.
