WTA Tips : Disarray in Rome 5/9

HRWager has our WTA Tips coming out of the disarray expected in the Rome stop starting on 5/9.  Serena should not be the constant money maker in the past here.  Kerber is going to have her issues as well.  This will be an event for underdog wagering and learning more about the field for the upcoming French Open.  So sit back with the HRW as we go over this week’s event, procure profit, and attempt to divine what might happen in the second Grand Slam event coming up in a few short weeks.

WTA Tips : Not Too Much on Serena Here

WTA Tips 5/9

A nasty fever had caused Serena Williams to withdraw from Madrid last week.  Instead of easing on in, she plays here and does doubles with her sister.  We understand the desire to do so and get that gold medal with Venus in the Olympic games.  However for sports investors, this is an event where she will tinker and get her feet back from underneath her.  The quarter she is in has tough outs as in the following.


  1. Halep
  2. Kuznetsova
  3. Ivanovic
  4. Even a Sam Stosur or Daria Gavrilova

For a tune up, you have Halep who won last weeks event and Kuznetsova who is going through one last good run before retirement.  Not many times do we see pitfalls like this where Serena can be curtailed before the semi finals!

3rd Quarter of the Draw

This is where Gabine Muguruza has to show some form heading into the French.  So highly ranked and has not even reached a semi final here.  This is desperation time in her camp.  Right off the bat she should get Makarova who beat her in Beijing.  No more time for tinkering.  If you ever saw a spark in Gabine, this is the event in which she will excel in.  Back her to get out of her section to at least the semis.

Chaos has ensued on the women’s tour.  Kerber is the only one that has shown form right now.  Lots of injuries right now.  Azarenka should get to the semi finals from her section as well.  HRWager advises a selective investment strategy on the matches with either Azarenka of Muguruza.  Good fortune in Rome and we will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.
