Victoria Azarenka vs. Kateryna Bondarenko, San Jose R1 Prediction

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.

Prediction: Victoria Azarenka to defeat Kateryna Bondarenko in 2 sets
