Azarenka leads their head to heads 6-2. One of Kerber’s wins was due to a withdrawal.
Their most recent match was in the Australian Open final and Kerber won in straight sets. That was Azarenka’s only loss of the year and her game has got stronger since then.
Kerber has struggled a little more than expected in this tournament. I thought Keys would give her some problems last night but Keys’ performance was terrible.
At the starting price the value is on Kerber. I think she has a chance of taking a set but won’t be surprised to see Azarenka win in straight sets.
Back Azarenka if she is broken first.
