Bet and win
Before the start of the Australian Open, Kenin held two tournaments. And both failed, because nothing on the court showed, except for a huge number of unforced errors. Now the situation has changed dramatically, because the American suddenly in the course of Australian Open gained form, and in the final stages completely caught courage. The most important thing is that Sofia is not at all nervous on the court. Take the match against Barty, where the Australian was worried and made mistakes, and Kenin took advantage of this and ignored the fans who were against her.
Muguruza once again clearly demonstrates that if she is in optimal shape and confident in herself, then she can beat any opponent. The Spaniard stands out for her attacking impulse, the ability to sharpen and crush the opponent with each hit. In addition, the Spaniard has in his arsenal a killer pitch, due to which he is gaining light points. Recently practicing exits to the grid.

Kenin vs Muguruza Prediction
Sophia should be praised for being the youngest Australian Open finalist. In the last match, she created an incredible sensation and knocked out the first racket of the world Ashley Barty. She was not embarrassed by the pressure from the audience and showed a high-level game. In turn, Garbine proved that she was well prepared for this Major. The Spaniard got a very heavy net, but she pretty easily dealt with her opponents, without losing a single set starting from 1/16. She has a huge experience, which should help her in the fight against the American tennis player.
The advantage of Muguruza is that she will go to court and not be nervous. After all, she has already won two TBS and knows how to behave. Although Kenin masterfully hides excitement and nerves, she is unlikely to be able to do this in the finale. Mugurus will powerfully attack, constantly crush and drive around the court. All this will lead to her third Grand Slam.
We predict Garbine Muguruza to win.
