The group stage of the Bnp Paribas WTA Finals Singapore is coming to a conclusion with Maria Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwanska advancing from group red, following Flavia Pennetta’s loss with 6-0 6-3 to Simona Halep. But the viking believes that Pennetta probably isn’t mourning the loss too much considering her career first majors win in the US Open.
In group White all of the four players have a shot at reaching the semis. However Safarova needs Muguruza to win in straight sets and then she needs to win in straight sets with a good game margin in each set. Muguruza needs to win one set to automatically qualify for the semis regardless if she wins the fixture or not. Petra Kvitova on the other hand will need to win in straight sets to secure her place in the semis by her own doing, she could also qualify by taking the game to 3 sets if Safarova wins in 3 sets.
With some of the WTA´s best tennis players needing to put on a performance to advance to the semifinals this means that the stakes are high and as such the pressure is as well. This of course means that we have some great sports betting advantages to profit from.
Garbine Muguruza will be coming into this fixture following two straight wins in her previous matches of the tournament, first defeating Lucie Safarova with 6-3 7-6(4) and then proceeding to defeat the WTA veteran Angelique Kerber with 6-4 6-4. Muguruza has really had a great season coming into this tournament; Climbing from rank 21 to a career high rank 3, winning the WTA Beijing, reaching the WTA Wuhan finals and reaching the Wimbledon finals.
Petra Kvitova will be trying to avoid last years result of 1-2 in the group stage in this fixture. She´s coming into this tournament having won the WTA New Haven and the Madrid Masters event. However her results have not been as impressive as Muguruza’s, Kvitova has put on a rather stellar performance in this tournament losing with 6-2 7-6(3) to Angelique Kerber to put her in this must win situation and drawing out her game versus Lucie Safarova with 7-5 7-5 providing Safarova with her small shot at the semis.

With both players coming into this fixture with their sights set on the WTA Finals Singapore semis, a straight up pick for this one is quite hard to predict. However the viking believes that we have only seen a small preview of what Garbine Muguruza has to offer here in this tournament and truth be told the chance of seeing a Muguruza vs Sharapova final is what the viking is betting on right now. Though Petra Kvitova being a quality tennis player with a must win scenario versus the WTA wonder child will provide us with two very clear picks and that is the over 2.5 sets pick aswell as the over 21.5 games pick.
The vikings prediction for this game is a 2-1 victory for Garbine Muguruza taking into account her shape, motivation and the fact that she has grown a lot stronger versus left handers.If you´re going to bet on the outcome then bet small because there is a possibility that Muguruza could drop her guard if she wins the first set and thus allowing Kvitova to make a comeback in the match.
