After a deep run at the US Open recently, Victoria Azarenka is one of the big form players at the moment.

She wasn’t happy at all with the conditions at a cold Roland Garros in the opening round. But got her match completed quickly.

She moves on to face an interesting challenge against Anna Karolina Schmiedlova for a place in the third round.

Victoria Azarenka Preview – Can Azarenka keep her focus?

In her French Open first round match, Victoria Azarenka walked off during a rain delay.

She had been unhappy about having been told to wait on court in very cold conditions.

The Belarusian returned in leggings and a tracksuit top to bear her opponent Danka Kovinic. She dropped just three games in the process.

Azarenka was the losing finalist at the recent US Open. She then backed that up with a run to the quarterfinals of the Italian Open on clay.

She has beaten some big names in the last couple of tournaments. She has earned success over  Aryna Sabalenka, Elise Mertens, Serena Williams and Sofia Kenin.

As long as she doesn’t let the strange conditions at Roland Garros this year play on her mind too much, she is one of the front runners.

Our betting prediction:
Total Games Under 16.5

Victoria Azarenka is a big front runner for this second round match against Anna Karolina Scmiedlova to the tune of 1/12 odds-on* (odds taken 0331 GMT Tuesday, 29th September).

Because Azarenka has produced some fantastic tennis recently. She has blown some opponents away quickly.

So we have to go to the games handicap for a look at some extended value for tennis betting in this one.

A Victoria Azarenka -6.5 handicap isn’t all that unappealing at 4/5* (odds taken 0331 GMT Tuesday, 29th September).

This will be the first meeting between the two players.


Anna Karolina Schmiedlova Preview – Can AKS pull off a major upset?

In the opening round of the French Open 2020, Anna Kaorlina Schmeidoova produced a fantastic straight sets victory over Venus Williams.

There is very little form of note for her this season. All that she has played since the season was restarted with the Istanbul Open prior to the French Open.

She was one of the players that took a pass on going to the USA recently.

Her victory over Williams in the opening round was a big boost to her French Open form. She had crashed in the first round in her four previous tournament appearances.

The best effort that the Slovakian has come up with at the Slam so far in her career was a thrid round exit in 2014.

Anna Karolina Schmiedlova is capable of scrapping but unless she gets a grip of Azarenka early on, then we feel that she is going to crumble quickly.

It is a W11 L8 record that she was carrying for the season with her into Roland Garros, but she generally plays in lower tiered tournaments.

It is hard to see Schmiedlova taking a set off of Azarenka, with the kind of mood that her opponent is in right now.

We don’t see her getting many games on the scoreboard either really and an Azarenka 6-2 opening set score is at 7/2* (odds taken 0331 GMT Tuesday, 29th September).


Victoria Azarenka vs Anna Karolina Schmiedlova Betting Advice

This should be a one sided match as long as Azarenka isn’t distracted by the cold and rain like she was in her opening match.

Still that didn’t stop her. But she is facing a tricker opponent in this one, but still we have to go straight to Under 17.5 Total Games for even money as Azarenka could finish this quickly.

If she doesn’t like the conditions, then she may want to get in and out quickly again.


Key Facts – Victoria Azarenka vs Anna Karolina Schmiedlova Betting Tip

The nice thing about tennis betting for this one is that there is some value around in supporting a straight sweep for the favourite.

The biggest that we see is in the Azarenka -6.5 in Games handicap because if she wins the first easily, she will probably cruise the second even more impressively.

We look back to her recent clay form in Rome and the Beluarisan blitzed Venus Williams, whitewashed 2020 Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin before bowing out to Garbine Mugurza in three sets.

She has all the form in the world to ease through this match.
