The former world no.1 – Victoria Azarenka – continues her successful comeback after childbirth. After a shaky start, Azarenka proved too strong for Catherine Bellis on her Wimbledon debut. Adding to this, the 27-year-old Belarusian didn’t experience any major problems in the following round with an easy 6 – 3 6 – 3 win against Elena Vesnina. Besides not allowing a single break of serve to Vesnina in the previous round, Azarenka ended the match with astonishing numbers – 24 winners and only 11 unforced errors.

After a slow start to 2017, Heather Watson is slowly returning to her best level. The world no.102 is going through one of the best moments in her career after reaching the Aegon International Eastbourne semifinals last week. Adding to this, Watson couldn’t have asked for a better way to start her campaign in Wimbledon with two straight sets victories against Maryna Zanevska and Anastasija Sevastova. At the age of 25, Watson is just one win away from an unprecedented appearance in the 4th round at the All England Club.

These two players know each other very well with Azarenka leading on the h2h by 5 – 0. Adding to this, the two-time Australian Open champion never lost a single set against this opponent.

Despite Watson’s recent improvements, it’s impossible to find any value on her current odds. On the other hand, the sportsbooks offer the best price ever for Azarenka to defeat this player. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Victoria’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the Belarusian to cover her spread on this match.

 Dominika Cibulkova (8) vs. Ana Konjuh (27)

Playing on grass brings the best out of Ana Konjuh with a sensational 68.97% career record on this surface. Known as one of the most powerful players on the WTA Tour, the fast court conditions on grass are perfect for Konjuh’s game style. Taking a look now at Ana’s campaign on this event, the 19-year-old Croat reaches this stage of the competition after a three-set battle against Irina-Camelia Begu.

As we mentioned in our WTA Wimbledon Day 1 analysis, Dominika Cibulkova is looking for another successful campaign in Wimbledon after reaching the quarterfinals in 2016. Despite her disappointing 0 – 3 record on the 2017 grass-court season, the world no.9 is already in the 3rd round after a 6 – 4 6 – 4 win over Jennifer Brady. Famous for her aggressive return to serve, Dominika won 49.69% of the points played on her opponents’ serve throughout this tournament. On the other hand, Cibulkova saved all the three break points she faced on the previous round against Brady.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Cibulkova emerging victorious from their previous encounter at the 2016 French Open.

Even though Konjuh is always a dangerous opponent on this surface, it won’t be easy for the young Croatian to overcome such a tough opponent as Cibulkova on a Grand Slam event. On the other hand, Dominika usually produces her best tennis on the big stages. Therefore, our recommendation is for you to add Cibulkova’s moneyline to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest. 

Free Tennis Pick: Dominika Cibulkova ML (-109)
