Muguruza vs Bertens (By: Jshoot)
Garbine Muguruza vs Kiki Bertens in WTA Sydney.
My pick will be Muguruza to win 2 straight sets in this game. If this is on clay match, Kiki will have a chance to win a set or even a match against Muguruza. Muguruza is a top 10 player rank 3rd, Kiki is rank 32nd and a good player but she is a specialist in clay and never a hard court player.
Kiki Bertens hard court record has been shocking, last year she only won 6 and lost 14 times. Although, Kiki has said during end of last year that she will prove everyone that she can play in hard court and beat Kristie Ahn (outside top 100) yesterday in 2 straight sets. However, even though Kristie Ahn beats top 100 players like Puig, Larsson & Navarro in straight 2 sets, I don't think Ahn played well at all in that game as she made a lot of unforced errors. The level of the match is obviously going to be different against top 10 player like Muguruza.
Even though their h2h is Kiki won 3x but three of them were in clay. In my opinion, as long as Muguruza is in a fit condition to play, she should have no problem to beat player like Kiki Bertens in hard court in 2 straight sets. The problem is that she retired during her last game (her first game in 2018) against Krunic and I don't know if he's in her top condition or no. However, she had plenty of days to rest and there is no excuse for her to keep playing if she is still injured especially with Australia Opens is coming up soon.
