Tennis Betting Caroline Wozniacki vs Vera Zvonareva

ZvonarevaThe final in Beijing is set between the young Dane Caroline Wozniacki and Russian Vera Zvonareva. Caroline has had a tremendous good run this year and will end the WTA rankings in first position while her opponent is chasing Caroline since Vera will only be a couple of spots lower in the rankings.

Worthy final

A worthy final will be played today but despite the current rankings it seems the odds on the match is slightly wrong. Vera should in our opinion be the favorite in this match up even it is a really close encounter that will be played in a few hours.

The main reasons that Vera deserve to be the favorite in today’s match is the recent win she had over Wozniacki in US Open. A match Caroline came into with a record of 19 won matches out of 20 since Wimbledon but still Vera Zvonareva managed to take away the match in fairly easy straight sets, 6-4 6-3.

Furthermore Caroline Wozniacki had a scare in her quarter final versus Ana Ivanovic where the Danish super star had an injury in the second set for which she retrieved substantial treatment before being able to get out on the court again. Ana should have put the match away but produced tons of unforced errors and Caroline was “lucky” to advance to the semis.

Great job by the team

The team behind Caroline has done a great job with the Danes leg/knee up to the semi final where she could claim victory with a 7-5, 6-2 win versus Shahar Peer. The second set was a walkover for Wozniacki which could not be said about the first set where Shahar came back from 2-5 to equalize the score before Caroline fought back to win the set.

In recent matches Wozniacki has been a bit inconsistent dropping easy games. Should this happen today then Vera is a world class opponent who will know not to make errors and let Caroline back into the match.

The match today will be the last for Caroline Wozniacki before the DOHA season ending Championships where the 8 best players in the world will compete for more than $4.500.000 in prize money. Caroline certainly need to recover before that tournament which is 16 days away from now and surely she will not take any big chances should she feel a bit to the injury from the quarter final.

Vera Zvonareva will have a great chance to win the match today in straight sets.

Current odds for Zvonareva win:

It is recommended to bet on Vera Zvonareva as outright winner since the risk of Caroline taking a set is not bad. Punters who follow the match should consider live betting on Zvonareva should she lose the first set since the match would be far from over even so.
