Both Muguruza and Williams have struggled with physical problems but that doesn't mean they won't fight for the title. Find out our tennis pick for WTA Wuhan final.

Venus Williams vs Garbine Muguruza (5)
Venus Williams managed to survive once again, after defeating Johanna Konta 7 – 5 in third set at quarterfinals the American needed a third set tie break to overcome Roberta Vinci.

Venus was clearly struggling to perform at a consistent level and physically very tired from a demanding week but Vinci wasn’t able to convert a match point and was too tight when was serving for the match. Williams served amazingly in first three matches but in the last two meetings she was broken 13 times averaging only 51.5% first serve in.

Garbine Muguruza had a huge win over Angelique Kerber however the Spaniard struggled with problems on her ankle and needed to receive medical timeout on 2nd set tie break.

The level of Muguruza has been unbelievable this week with her return of serve making huge damage to her opponents. Garbine ended the match against Kerber with 42 winners / 43 unforced errors which is very good when on the other side is such a great defender as Kerber.

Muguruza’s price is extremely high due to her ankle problems in the end of the match, however, if she’s recovered and up for the task, she should emerge victorious.

Venus is struggling with her serve while Garbine is returning better than ever and will explore for sure the American lower first serve %.

The best move on this match to add Muguruza’s spread to our tennis picks because in case she retires it will be void, while the ML can be lost if the first set is already over. On the other hand if Garbine is recovered and ready to compete there is a tremendous value on her tennis odds
