Eugenie Bouchard vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (8)

Known as one of the best clay-court players on the WTA Tour, the 2009 French Open champion – Svetlana Kuznetsova – holds an outstanding 70.56% winning record on this surface. Despite her undeniable quality, Kuznetsova has been far from impressive on this event. Svetlana was on the brink of elimination against Alison Riske in the 2nd round with the Russian saving one match point on that match. Adding to this, Kuznetsova had to recover from break down on both sets against Qiang Wang this Wednesday.

Regardless of this Thursday’s result, Eugenie Bouchard already secured a place in the top 60 next week. Despite her lack of success in recent years, the Canadian should never be underestimated since she’s not only a former world no.5 but also a Grand Slam runner-up. Famous for her counter punching skills, the fast court conditions in Madrid bring the best out of Bouchard. Looking now at Eugenie’s campaign on this event, the Canadian reaches this stage of the competition after two astonishing performances against Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Kuznetsova leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

Despite Bouchard’s brilliant performances in the previous two rounds, Kuznetsova is far from an easy match-up for the Canadian. However, it’s impossible to find any value on the Russian’s tennis odds. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks as the best betting approach for this contest.
