Miami Open 2016: Victoria Azarenka vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova Championship Prediction

This match is a bit dated, but it could be a good indicator of what a treat this could be.

Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Victoria Azarenka

This should be an excellent match between a pair of double major champions.  Both players move well and hit powerful groundstrokes.  Vika moves better than Azarenka at this stage in their careers.  Kuznetsova has fewer hitches in her mechanics.  That is where Kuznetsova could make inroads in this match.  If Vika’s mechanics breakdown, she might very well lose this match.  Still, Azarenka has momentum and should win this match.  Vika has had the best first 3rd of 2016.  She could very well end this year ranked #1, but doing so would be much easier if she wins Miami.

My Prediction: Victoria Azarenka d. Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 6-2
