I was really impressed by how Kim was playing against Muguruza despite her expected loss. I mean sure she can not win instantly on her return and she got very tough opponent right on the start but still managed to put very decent performance. Kim looked like solid mover even with extra pounds, shots were deep and with decent power in them, more than average WTA player nowadays. Her game can surely only go from this point up, and as she said in the post-match conference, she was feeling great on the court and was very pleased with her tennis.
I think Kim has more chances here than bookies offer. Konta is having problems herself since that break from September. She is still struggling to find the right form because of that right knee. 3 matches and all 3 finished with defeat with only one set won against Strycova. In the last match against Dodan, she looked poor and out of shape with really bad timing on strokes. I know Kim is still in that mixed state, but Johanna did nothing special so far to deserve big favoritism like this. Value is on Kim for me and I will try it on a smaller stake.
