The group stages of the Bnp Paribas WTA Finals Singapore are concluded and Garbine Muguruza advanced as the first seed from group white with an impressive 3-0 performance loosing only one set, which was in her decider against Petra Kvitova where she won the first set to secure her place in the semi-finals and then lost the second set to finally conclude the match with 6-4 4-6 7-5. Agnieszka Radwanska qualified to the semi-finals as the second seed of group red with only one victory following Maria Sharapova’s straight set win over Flavia Pennetta. Radwanska was the only player to take a set from Sharapova and as such she finished the group tied in wins but with a 1 set advantage over her peers.
The group stage showed us one thing in terms of facts that we can use in our tennis betting and that was that Sharapova and Muguruza are performing on a level above the competition. Both of the players dropped only a single set on their journey to the semi-finals which is quite interesting as the two tennis players each represent their own player profile. Garbine Muguruza the up and coming WTA star being a young and hungry player with a lot of determination and Maria Sharapova being a top-5 WTA veteran for years with heaps of experience. The semi-finals will be the place where the underdogs from the group stages will need to show up more motivated and determined. Radwanska has shown us this with her performances since the US Open, just not as much as Muguruza. And if there´s a time to show up then this is it. The WTA Finals is regarded by many as the most prestigious event in the WTA as the majors tend to bring more focus to the ATP players.
Agnieszka Radwanska will be coming into this fixture with 3 victories and 2 defeats in her latest 5 games. She won only one game in the group stages which was versus Simona Halep in straight sets with 7-6(5) 6-1. However both of her other fixtures were close as she barely lost to US Open winner Flavia Pennetta with 7-6(5) 6-4. Radwanska was also the only player of group white to take a set from Maria Sharapova to secure her spot in the semi-finals, a match which she lost with 4-6 6-3 6-4. All of these fixtures gave us a preview of one thing; Radwanska has what it takes to compete with the absolute elite players of the WTA regardless if it´s veteran players such as Pennetta and Sharapova or if it´s up and comers such as the 24 year old world no. 2 Simona Halep.
Garbine Muguruza will be coming into this fixture with 5 straight victories in her latest 5 games. Since her loss in the Wimbledon finals to Serena Williams, Muguruza seems to grow and grow with every match that she plays. The Spaniard has developed an ability to capitalize on even the smallest mistakes of her opponents, utilizing small margins into big mental advantages.

The vikings prediction for this match is that Garbine Muguruza wins in three sets. First lets look at the head to head statistics, Muguruza has won 4 out of 6 meetings with all of her victories being from 2015. Radwanska last won a match versus Garbine Muguruza in 2014 at the Australian Open, in fact Muguruza has only lost 3 out of 11 sets to Radwanska this year. Muguruza´s odds development in these head to head games are very interesting and further speaks to her progress throughout the year; In the first meeting she had an odds of 3.15, 2.15 in the second, 1.90 in the third, 1.80 in the fourth and now the odds of her winning is at 1.53.
The duo last faced each other in the WTA Beijing a couple of weeks ago, a meeting that Muguruza won with 4-6 6-3 6-4. That match serves as a great preview for this game as the players have only had a chance to progress in their mental game considering the low time interval. The skill match up for this meeting will in other words be similar but Muguruza looks to be one step ahead in her motivation and hunger to show the world that she can win even in more pressured games.
Other interesting picks for this match except for Muguruza to win is the over 2.5 sets pick as 3 out of the last 4 of their head to head matches have gone to 3 sets and regardless if Muguruza has the edge Radwanska will come into this fixture with the mindset to win, this gives the over 2.5 sets pick great value and if Radwanska gets an upset victory it will most definitely be in 3 sets.
