Garbine Muguruza Preview – Spaniard set for another tough test

At the Australian Open earlier this year, Garbine Muguruza put together an inspired run to reach the final of the Grand Slam.

She lost out there to Sofia Kenin, but it signalled a big return to form.

Since the season restarted, she went straight into action at the US Open, skipping over the preceding Western & Southern Open.

Muguruza was shut down in the second round at Flushing Meadows against Tsvetana Pironkova in straight sets.

This will be the first meeting between Muguruza and Gauff and the former is the 4/9 odds-on favourite for the fixture* (odds taken 02:39 GMT, Wednesday 16th September).

Our betting prediction:
Muguruza 2-0 Set Betting

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 02:39 GMT, Wednesday 16th September)


It is a 17/5 win/loss record for Muguruza this season so it has been a prominent year for her.

She opened her tournament in Rome in emphatic style as well, crushing Sloane Stephens in straight sets and that was after a disruption for a rain delay.

The Spaniard is the ninth seed in Rome, and giving the long odds-on favourites on Muguruza in the match outright, we have to look a little deeper.

A Mugurza 2-0 option in set betting is running at a current 11/10 option* (odds taken 02:39 GMT, Wednesday 16th September).


Cori Gauff Preview – Can Gauff collected another good win?

American youngster Cori Gauff was dumped out in the first round of the US Open recently, as she was beaten by Anastasija Sevastova in three-sets.

Gauff returned to action after the enforced break at the Top Seed Open in August, reaching the semi finals there.

But a loss in the semi finals there to compatriot Jennifer Brady, sparked a run of three straight defeats, culminating in the loss at the US Open against Sevastova.

So that win that she put on the board in the first round of WTA Rome will have done her the power of good.

It was a fantastic win against a form-player as well, Gauff beating Ons Jabeur in straight sets.

Cori Gauff is the 11/8 underdog for the match on Thursday against Muguruza* (odds taken 02:39 GMT, Wednesday 16th September).

She is likely to face a heavy barrage of Muguruza serves which could grind her down a bit over the course of the match.

We don’t see Guaff getting the first set done here and from there, that’s a long way back against the Spaniard.

The recent form from Gauff perhaps isn’t enough to bring her into considerations for this Rome match on clay.
