Svetlana Kuznetsova (8) vs. Kristina Mladenovic (14)

Regardless of this Friday’s result, Kristina Mladenovic already secured her career-high ranking next week. At the age of 23, Mladenovic is going through the best moment in her career with an outstanding 26 – 6 record since her disappointing defeat in the Australian Open 1st round against Ana Konjuh. Besides her success in singles, Kristina is also the world no.5 on the WTA doubles ranking. After starting her campaign in Madrid with two shaky performances, Mladenovic didn’t experience any problems in the following two rounds against Oceane Dodin and Sorana Cirstea.

With a phenomenal 70.71% winning record on red dirt, Svetlana Kuznetsova is, without any doubt, one of the best clay-court players on the WTA Tour. Despite not playing her best tennis in the opening rounds, Kuznetsova featured an outstanding performance in the quarterfinals against Eugenie Bouchard. Besides not losing a single service game on that match, Svetlana won 51.92% of the points played on the Canadian’s serve. After reaching the Mutua Madrid Open in 2015, Kuznetsova is now just one win away from returning to the decisive match on the capital of Spain.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Mladenovic emerging victorious from their previous encounter two years ago at the US Open.

With both players at such a high level this week, it’s unlikely to see any of them winning in two easy sets. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the Over betting odds by adding this line to your betting picks as the best approach for this contest.
