Bouchard vs. Kuznetsova
Eugenie Bouchard’s dream run continues in Madrid. After an incredible victory over Maria Sharapova in the 2nd round, Bouchard featured another remarkable performance in the following round against the world no.2 – Angelique Kerber. Looking now at Eugenie’s numbers throughout the week, the highlight goes to her return to serve with the Canadian winning 52.80% of her opponents’ service games.
Playing in Spain is always special for Svetlana Kuznetsova. At the age of 14, Kuznetsova moved to Barcelona to practice in the Sanchez-Casal Academy in Barcelona. Therefore, it’s not surprising to see Svetlana doing so well on clay throughout her career. Despite her undeniable quality on this surface, Kuznetsova was far from impressive in the previous two matches against Alison Riske and Qiang Wang.
Due to Kuznetsova’s brilliant record on this surface and 2 – 0 lead on the h2h, the bookmakers expect a straightforward win from the Russian. Looking at the odds for this encounter, Svetlana is available at 2/5 with William Hill while Bet365 offers 11/5 for Bouchard’s victory. Even though we agree with Kuznetsova’s favouritism, it’s impossible to find any value on the current prices. This should be a much closer match than the odds suggest, which makes the Over 21 at 19/20 with Pinnacle the best betting approach for this match.
