Join us for our betting analysis of this Saturday’s action in Mexico with two former world No.1 – Angelique Kerber and Victoria Azarenka – fighting for a place in the final of the Monterrey Open.

<h2 style="text-align:center">Angelique Kerber (1) vs. Victoria Azarenka (5)</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/monterrey-mexico/azarenka-vs-kerber-3768979/" target="_blank" title="Check Kerber - Azarenka Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, 6 April, Monterrey</strong></a></p><p>Former world No.1 Victoria Azarenka produced a dominant display to beat three-time champion Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-0, 6-4 and advance to the semi-finals of the Monterrey Open. Azarenka lost just two points on serve in a near-flawless opening set and ended the match with 16 winners to just nine unforced errors. The two-time Australian Open champion is hoping to end a three-year drought and reach her first WTA final since the 2016 Miami Open.</p><p>Azarenka will next face Angelique Kerber on Saturday. The No.1 seed continued her quest for a first Monterrey Open title with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Kirsten Flipkens in just 66 minutes. Kerber is a two-time finalist in Monterrey but has yet to lift a trophy at the Club Sonoma. The 31-year-old German did not face a single break point and won 89.29% of the points behind her first serve in a very solid performance. Adding to this, Kerber broke serve three times and tripled Kirsten’s winner total with 24 to just eight 8 from her opponent.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;.&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/AngeliqueKerber?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@AngeliqueKerber&lt;/a&gt; moves closer to her third &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Abierto_GNP?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@Abierto_GNP&lt;/a&gt; final!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Reaches semifinals with win over Flipkens--&amp;gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/r2rGWJrSti\"&gt;https://t.co/r2rGWJrSti&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/rtsBu1ZntG\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/rtsBu1ZntG&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— WTA (@WTA) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/WTA/status/1114355737961160704?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;6 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>These two players will face each other for the ninth time in their careers. Azarenka leads 6-1 in their head-to-head but this will be their first official encounter since the Miami Open in 2016.</p><p>Kerber improved a lot in the last three years and is now one of the toughest competitors to face on the WTA Tour. On the other hand, Azarenka only won one of eight matches against Top 10 players since she returned from maternity leave. The German is always a great investment in the final stages of the tournaments and for that reason, our suggestion is to take advantage of the value on her <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Tennis Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a> to win this match at 26/25 (2.04) <a href="http://affiliate.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">with Pinnacle</a>.</p>
