Betting on Garbine Muguruza (-220)
Garbine Muguruza barged into the third round of the 2017 Rogers Cup with a convincing 7-5, 6-2 victory over qualifier Kirsten Flipkens on Wednesday. It was an impressive showing from the reigning Wimbledon champion, who needed one hour and 25 minutes to eliminate the Belgian. Muguruza was simply in fine form in this match, hitting a whopping 28 winners – more than twice the number that came off Flipkens’ racquet.
Muguruza, who is pegged at +550 to win this year’s US Open, will next face Ashleigh Barty in the third round. For Muguruza to reach her eighth quarterfinal of the year, she will need to continue her solid return play against Barty. Muguruza won 48 percent of her receiving points in the second round against Flipkens with the world no. 4 converting five of her six break point opportunities.
Betting on Ashleigh Barty (+170)
The dream lives on for Ashleigh Barty. The 21-year-old Queenslander moved into the third round of the 2017 Rogers Cup with a gritty 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 win over world no. 18 Elena Vesnina on Wednesday. Barty, ranked 58th in the WTA standings, rode her serve in this encounter, blasting nine aces in a match that lasted just over two hours.
Barty will look to continue her terrific form in the round of 16 when she takes on Garbine Muguruza this coming Thursday. The Australian will be licking her chops at the prospect of facing the two-time Grand Slam champion as she is 1-0 against Muguruza in their head-to-head matchup. The two played shortly before the Spaniard won the Wimbledon Championships, as Barty rallied from a set down in the semis of the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, to reach the final.
Muguruza (-220) wins in straight sets.
