V.Azarenka v N.Petrova
View all Chrissy's tips »
This tennis betting tip comes from Wimbledon and the 4th Round match between Victoria Azarenka (#5)
and Nadia Petrova (#37).
These two tennis players are heading in opposite directions in their career.
This season on the WTA Tour Azarenka has won 36 matches. 3 times more than Petrova who has won just
Petrova has been struggling with her fitness levels and has managed to progress due to her power which
is her main weapon on this surface.
Azarenka is striking the ball superbly and will make the rallies as long as possible. In the hot humid conditions
Petrova will find it tough.
Much is always made of the Azarenka retirements. She has been working hard with a new fitness coach and
has improved this part of her game significantly this season.
Petrova has been on poor form pretty much all season long. She has lost in the 1st Round in Sydney, Brisbane,
Miami, Madrid, Rome and the French Open.
Just two weeks ago she was beaten 6-4 6-1 by Sam Stosur (#10) in Eastbourne who has a terrible record
on grass courts.
Petrova's poor season has her languishing in 58th place in the singles race.
There is no doubt Azarenka has taken her game to a new level in 2011.
After her win in Miami she was being talked about as the new number 1 on the WTA Tour.
That week she beat Sharapova, Clijsters and Zvonareva for the loss of just 14 games.
It's true things have not gone her way since but she is more than capable of stringing those kind of results
this week at Wimbledon and I can't see Petrova stopping Azarenka in her quest for Grand Slam glory.
