Azarenka leads their head to heads 5-1. Kerber’s win was due to a walkover! Their most recent meeting was in August last year and Azarenka won in 3 sets.
Kerber has a poor record in finals but she made improvements to that record last season with 5 titles from 6 finals. All her 2015 finals went to 3 sets. I think she will put up a good fight in this one. She has played some good tennis this week. She beat Pavlyuchenkova and Suarez Navarro in straight sets.
Azarenka hasn’t been tested this week. I thought Vinci might make her work for the victory but the Italian was over powered.
Back Azarenka if she gets broken first. I think she wins in 3 sets.
