Join us and find out our top betting selection for the WTA Miami Open Quarterfinals Day 2. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab this valuable tennis pick.

Angelique Kerber (1) vs. Venus Williams (11)

At the age of 36, Venus Williams continues to be one of the greatest players in the game. After Bethanie Mattek-Sands defeat in the previous round, Venus is the last American player standing at the WTA Miami Open. Even though Williams is no longer the big server that she used to be, she’s still a very tough opponent to break. Venus’ numbers throughout this event are a good example of that with the three-time Miami Open champion winning 89.70% of her service games.

After a brilliant run in 2016, the last months haven’t been easy for Angelique Kerber with the world no.1 still looking for her first title since the US Open. Adding to this, Kerber lost all her previous three matches this season against top 20 opponents. Looking now at Angelique’s campaign on this event, the German reaches this stage of the competition after an easy 6 – 2 6 – 2 victory over the Japanese qualifier – Risa Ozaki.

This will be the 7th career meeting between these two players with Kerber leading on the h2h by 4 – 2.

Despite Angelique’s lead on the h2h, Venus won their previous encounter on Hard Court three years ago in Montreal. Due to Kerber’s poor results in recent months against top opponents, it’s impossible to find value on her current betting odds. On the other hand, Williams is going through a great moment in her career with the American reaching the Australian Open final earlier this season. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Venus to your betting picks to win this match and secure a place in the semifinals.
