Maria Sharapova and Na Li are set for an exciting round robin matchup on Wednesday at the WTA ChampionshipsYou can watch and bet on the action from the WTA Championships at bet365
Maria Sharapova made a poor start to her WTA Championships title charge on Tuesday, losing 6-1, 7-5 to U.S Open champion Samantha Stosur. The defeat puts Sharapova in a difficult situation, as she’ll now need to win on Wednesday to give herself a good chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.
Sharapova’s opponent on Wednesday will be this year’s French Open winner, Na Li. Li wasn’t involved in Tuesday’s action, and this could be to her benefit if fatigue becomes an issue for Sharapova. Li might just feel that she’s got a big opportunity to get past the world No. 2 here.
Li has won her last three matches against Sharapova, including a crucial success in the semi-finals this year at Roland Garros. With Sharapova stuttering on her return from injury, China’s first ever slam winner is arguably the favourite for this upcoming clash. Still, if Sharapova is on top form she should be able to keep her title hopes alive.You can watch and bet on the action from the WTA Championships at bet365
