The third round of the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open will bid a very interesting match up as the 8th ranked Garbine Muguruza takes on the 9th ranked Ana ivanovic. With both players chasing a spot in the Singapore BNP Paribas WTA finals this is sure to be a though one, especially with both players puting on an impressive performance in the second round as Ana Ivanovic beat Madison Brengle with 6-0, 6-3 and Garbine Muguruza just as impressive beat the american up and comer Sloane Stephens with 6-2, 6-0.
Ana Ivanovic needs to go deep in both this tour and in the China Open next week, will the former world number one withstand the pressure and take home the title or will she fall in her path to singapore against the wimbledon finalist. Ana has had 3 victories and 2 defeats in her last 5 games but she has really stepped up her game and motivation with the WTA Singapore finals in sight, winning the first round in Wuhan with 6-1, 6-3 against Alexandra Dulgheru and winning the second round with 6-0, 6-3 against Madison Brengle.
Garbine Muguruza has shown great shape this year reaching both a career high ranking of 8th in the world and a majors final in wimbledon. She has 3 victories and 2 defeats in her last 5 games as her performance has been dropping slightly, however she won her last game in less than an hour showing great determination against the young american hope Sloane Stephens. Things are looking very good for Garbine and this could very well be the stepping stone to her first WTA championship.

The vikings prediction for this matchup is a 2-1 victory for Ana Ivanovic, you can see just how determined she is and she has shown before that she has what it takes. However in an encounter like this where both players are in the best possible shape a straight up pick is not the best bet for this game. The viking believes that there is great value to be had in the over 2.5 sets pick and in the over 22.0 games pick (this can and should be covered in 2 sets), the viking considers the over 22.0 games to be very strong in this match up as both players reached either tiebreak or 3 sets in all of their combined loses.
