WTA Miami

The Miami Open takes place at the Tennis Center in Crandon Park with Hard Court as the chosen surface for this WTA Premier Mandatory event.

Main Contender

Elina Svitolina continues her quest for a first ever Miami Open title. The No.4 seed produced a superb performance to end Naomi Osaka’s remarkable recent run with a 6 – 4 6 – 2 win over the Indian Wells champion. Known as one of the greatest competitors in the game, Elina saved five of six break points and broke Osaka’s serve four times. At the age of 23, Svitolina is trying to become the first Ukrainian in tennis history to lift the trophy in Key Biscayne.

Taking a look now at Elina’s draw on this event, the Ukrainian returns to action this Sunday against Daria Gavrilova. These two are no strangers with Svitolina winning four of their previous seven official meetings on the WTA Tour. Despite the balance on the h2h, the world No.4 didn’t drop a single set in all their last three encounters. For that reason, betting on Elina’s -1.5 Set Handicap at -149 at Pinnacle is our recommendation for this contest. In addition to the value on Elina’ tennis betting odds on the next round, placing a bet on her outright at +600 at BetVictor is also an interesting approach for this tournament.

Player to Keep an Eye

The three-time champion Victoria Azarenka extended her winning-streak in Key Biscayne to 8 matches after a 7 – 6 2 – 0 victory over 14-seeded Madison Keys. Playing in Miami brings the best out of Azarenka with the former world No.1 winning 85.00% of the matches played throughout her career on this event. Known as one of the best returners in tennis history, the 28-year-old won 67.70% of her opponents’ service games on this event.

Looking now at Azarenka’s draw in Miami, the former champion won’t have an easy task in the following round against Anastasija Sevastova. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to go against Azarenka after her brilliant performances against Keys and Cici Bellis on this event. On the other hand, the slow court conditions in Miami should benefit the Belarusian on this match-up. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to add Azarenka’s moneyline to your betting picks at -135 at 5Dimes as the most valuable play for this contest.
