??? Miami Open, R1 Prediction
?? Victoria Azarenka vs. ?? Dominika Cibulkova
Victoria Azarenka and Dominika Cibulkova renew hostilities in an intriguing opening round match-up at the 2019 Miami Open. Whilst Azarenka and Cibulkova are both ranked well below their best at the moment, both are still capable of playing top level tennis, Azarenka showed that in Indian Wells a few weeks ago whilst Cibulkova is due to remind us of her best, perhaps this is the match Cibulkova gets it all together?
I’m going to hesitantly side with Azarenka here. Azarenka has the better form heading into this match. Azarenka has played some good tennis over the last month without having the best results. Conversely, Cibulkova has only won 1 match this year and is really struggling. However, Cibulkova is due for a good performance and will be up for this fight, I expect an improved showing from Cibulkova here but Azarenka should be a bit too solid.
