Caroline Wozniacki (12) vs. Lucie Safarova

The former world no.5 – Lucie Safarova – is slowly returning to her best level after struggling with some physical problems last season. After losing against Serena Williams in the Australian Open 2nd round, Safarova won 81.25% of the 16 matches played since that defeat. Looing now at Lucie’s campaign in Miami, the 30 years old Czech reaches this stage of the competition without dropping a single set. The highlight clearly goes to her 4th round win over Dominika Cibulkova with Lucie winning 72.00% of the points played on Cibulkova’s second serve.

Caroline Wozniacki continues her successful journey in recent months with the Danish holding a phenomenal 42 – 9 record since the 2016 US Open. Known for her outstanding defense and return to serve, Caroline won 48.50% of her opponents’ service games over the last 6 months. This is Wozniacki’s 5th career appearance on this event’s quarterfinals with the former world no.1 benefiting from Garbine Muguruza’s retirement in the previous round with a heat-related illness after losing the opening set in the tie break.

These two players know each other very well with Wozniacki winning four of their previous seven meetings.

Despite Safarova’s improvements in recent weeks, it’s unlikely to see the Czech presenting the required consistency to defeat the former world no.1. Adding to this, Wozniacki shouldn’t waste the opportunity to reach her first semifinal on a WTA Premier Mandatory event since March 2013 in Indian Wells. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Caroline’s betting odds by adding her spread to your betting picks as the highest value play for this match.
