Sharapova to make a winning start to her WTA Finals campaign

| 21.10.2014

After Serena Williams and Simona Halep picked up wins on the opening day’s play of the WTA Finals in their Red Group tussles, it’s the turn of the White Group to take to Singapore’s Indoor Stadium court on day two.

Here’s the best bets for each of the two matches as Maria Sharapova gets her bid to end the year as world number one underway:

Maria Sharapova to beat Caroline Wozniacki 2-0 @ 1/1

Rory McIlroy’s former squeeze is one of just two women in the field to have beaten the Russian this year, but that seems to have been an anomaly considering she has won just three of her 11 matches against the world’s top 10 in 2014.

This year’s blip aside, Sharapova has won the last three meetings with her Danish opponent, two of which came in straight sets, and Wozniacki has been defeated 2-0 in all of her last five losses.

Petra Kvitova (-4.5) to beat Agnieszka Radwanska @ 1/1

Polish world number six Radwanska arrives in Singapore on the back of patchy form having lost five times in her last nine outings.

Her opponent, on the other hand, perhaps has the best recent record in the field thanks to a run of 17 matches in which she’s lost just twice.

The Czech also holds the upper hand in the tale of the tape, winning four of their five clashes and took their last duel by a margin of six games, prompting a punt a handicap on this one.
