Serena Williams (1) vs. Garbine Muguruza (4)
For the second time on her career, Garbine Muguruza will play the final of a Grand Slam event, with her previous appearance last year in Wimbledon. In our semifinals analysis, we picked Muguruza to win her match against Samantha Stosur in straight sets and the Spaniard matched the expectations, dismissing her opponent by 6 – 2 6 – 4. Garbine has been impressive throughout the whole tournament, playing with a very aggressive mindset and her numbers against Stosur are a good example of that, ending the match with 20 winners / 18 unforced errors and winning 62.07% of the points played on Stosur’s second serve.

After an incredibly tough contest in the quarterfinals against Yulia Putintseva, Serena Williams had another huge test in the semifinals against Kiki Bertens, with the American winning by 7 – 6 6 – 4. Bertens had many chances to close the first set yet, Serena raised her level on pressure points, saving 6/7 break points, converting the only chance she had and saving also two set points on that 1st set. Even though Serena is not playing her best tennis, she can never be underestimated with a phenomenal 21 – 5 career record on Grand Slam finals.

This will be the 5th career meeting between these two players, with Serena leading on h2h by 3 – 1. Curiously, all the four previous encounters were played in Grand Slam events, with Garbine’s single victory occurring two year ago on this event while their last match was played in Wimbledon 2015, with Serena winning the final by 6 – 4 6 – 4.

One of the reasons for Serena’s poor performances lately might be an adductor injury that is bothering the American. However, Williams is a monumental competitor and she can never be underestimated, especially on a Grand Slam final. Garbine can create problems to the American with her powerful game yet, the value is clearly on Serena’s tennis odds and for that reason, we suggest you to add the American to your tennis picks.
