Match Predict – Handicap (-5) for Azarenka
Even at her best, Pavlyuchenkova has not played well against Azarenka, losing five of seven head-to-head encounters. At the moment, Anastasia is clearly still far from her optimum form. We think Victoria is stronger than Anastasia by all parameters today and won’t experience any big problems. All the more, the Belarusian will play after last week’s disappointing defeat from Bencic and won’t allow herself to relax.
Total Games Under 20
Given Pavlyuchenkova’s less-than-optimal form, we don’t expect the match to be long. It’s still hard for Anastasia to compete on equal terms with the top 20.
