Garbine Muguruza Preview – Spaniard to move ahead?

Spain’s Garbine Muguruza faced a tricky-looking match in the Third Round of action in Olympic Tennis.

She met Belgium’s Alison Van Uytvank, who had knocked out Petra Kvitova in the previous round.

But Muguruza moved through comfortably in straight sets, in a match that was interrupted by rain.

So that’s three matches down at the Olympics and not a set dropped.

That’s massively important, because of the heat in Japan, every bit of energy conserved by winning quickly is going to help in the long run.

In the match outright for Olympic tennis betting Muguruza is a quote of 4/9 to win* (odds taken 23:31 GMT, July 27th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

This will be just the second time that Muguruza and Rybakina have met.

The first meeting was just last month in Germany, with Muguruza taking a straight-set win in Berlin on the grass.

Our betting prediction:
Under 21.5 Games

* (odds taken 23:31 GMT, July 27th 2021 at Ladbrokes)


The form of Muguruza in 2021 hasn’t been terrific as she has struggled for consistency as the season has rolled.

She never got herself going really on the grass swing, which was unusual for her.

At Rio 2016 Muguruza fell in the Third Round of the competition to eventual Gold Medallist Monica Puig.

So it has been a step forward for the Spaniard in that regard.

Each time that Muguruza has made a quarter final in a Hard Court tournament this year, she has gone on to reach the final on all three occasions.

That reads like a good omen and a Muguruza 2-0 set betting option is at even money* (odds taken 23:31 GMT, July 27th 2021 at Ladbrokes).


Elena Rybakina Preview – Can Rybakina defy the odds?

There hasn’t been the attention on Elena Rybakina at the Olympics like there has been for Muguruza.

But Rybakina has very quietly put together a good run of form.

The Kazakhstan player, who is a Top 20 player in the world, has not dropped a set either at the Olympics.

The draw for her has been a little easier than that of Muguruza. Just slightly.

She faced Donna Vekic in the Third Round and came through that in straight sets after Vekic had been serving for the first set.

The current form is certainly there for Rybakina.

She has won 14 of her last 18 matches in all competitions and in that run, made her first Grand Slam quarter final.

That was at the French Open.

So Rybakina does carry a threat here but she is the 7/4 underdog in the match outright for Olympic Tennis betting* (odds taken 23:31 GMT, July 27th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

Things do get a lot tougher here for Elena Rybakina as she faces seventh seed Muguruza.

Looking specifically at Rybakina’s Hard Court form, she is W6 L4 in her last ten.

Rybakina had a really low key start to the year on the WTA.

But she has steadily gotten better and better and this run at the Olympics confirms that.

However, she will likely need to raise her game from what she has produced so far in this tournament to get to the final four.

Under 21.5 games for tennis betting is at 4/5* (odds taken 23:31 GMT, July 27th 2021 at Ladbrokes).
