On this article you'll find our detailed analysis on Garbine Muguruza and Maria Sharapova Player Profile to help you improve your winnings on tennis betting.

Garbine Muguruza
The last two seasons were outstanding for Garbine Muguruza, with the 22 years old Spaniard ending 2015 as world no.3. Despite having a tremendous potential, Garbine always struggled to perform at a consistent level. Muguruza’s powerful groundstrokes are her biggest weapon, but is hard for her to avoid unforced errors. Let’s look at her numbers in previous two seasons, using Pinnacle's closing betting odds.

 

 

We can verify that Garbine has been a very solid investment in previous two years, however is important to mention that she’s by far a better investment on Grand Slams and Champions WTA. Muguruza loves to play on big stages against the best in the world, which makes her also a good investment as underdog.

 

 

Our suggestion is to avoid playing Muguruza on smaller events, mainly when she’s priced as favorite. On the other hand she has proved to be a great investment on big tournaments and we advise to add the Spaniard to your betting picks on Grand Slams – except at US Open where she has a terrible -66.50% career ROI.

 

Maria Sharapova
The year of 2015 was far from easy for Maria Sharapova, with the Russian struggling with several physical problems. Despite being away from tour for several months, Sharapova ended the year at very good level. Maria is known for her remarkable mental strength and aggressive baseline game.

Sharapova’s career has been quite curious, her first big title occurred in Wimbledon while clay was her worst surface, but in previous years everything changed.

 

 

It’s very interesting to see that Maria recorded her best results on clay in previous four seasons. The Russian learned how to slide on clay and became a feared opponent on that surface. If Sharapova manages to avoid injuries, she might be a very good investment on clay for 2016.
