Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic, San Jose R1 Prediction
?? Victoria Azarenka vs. ?? Kateryna Bondarenko
I’m going to side with Azarenka here. This should be a fairly comfortable win for the Belarusian. Their history shows that this is a good match-up for Azarenka, and I think that will show again even though the pair haven’t met for almost a decade. Azarenka does everything better than Bondarenko. I think Azarenka’s mixed doubles run at Wimbledon will have a good influence on her moving into the US swing as she can transition up the court with confidence, something that gives her a big edge in this match-up.
