The two top seed still in competition will fight for a place in the final. Join us while we analyze the top tennis pick for WTA Wuhan semifinals.

Garbine Muguruza (5) vs Angelique Kerber (6)
Garbine Muguruza had a poor 2 – 4 record since Wimbledon’s final before this event however she has clearly raised her level to reach this semifinals. Garbine has been serving extremely well winning 80.6% of service games but what has been more impressive is her aggressive level on return with 50.0% of return games won.

Angelique Kerber is one of the best defenders on tour with amazing counter puncher skills and a great baseline movement. The German is looking for her 5th final of the season after winning already four titles this year. Kerber had a tough contest against Jelena Jankovic in first round but after that two good wins over Camila Giorgi and Coco Vandeweghe.

This is a very interesting match-up between one of the best defenders and a powerful player. 

Angelique won the three first matches, all played on Hard Court, while Muguruza defeated the German this year on clay and grass. The matches between them are always extremely competitive and the same is expected here, in last three contests a third set was needed to determine the winner.

Both are playing amazing tennis, Muguruza can make more damage with her groundstrokes however Kerber with her defensive skills forces Garbine to longer rallies and the Spanish struggles to be consistent.

This match should go to distance and we’ll select to our tennis picks the value on Over tennis odds.

Tennis Pick: Over 22.0 (-110) at Pinnacle
