View Full Version : WTA Rome

14th May 2012, 08:43 PM
M. J. Martinez Sanchez vs. Sofia Arvidsson

Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez from Spain meets Sofia Arvidsson from Sweden in the first round of WTA Premiere event in Rome. Martinez Sanchez is not only one of the most successful doubles players - ranked as high as number 4 in 2010 and winner of 15 doubles titles - but also very good singles player who used to be in Top20 and won 5 WTA Tour titles in her career. The biggest success in her singles career came in 2010 in... Rome as she has won the title here after defeating Schiavone, Wozniacki, Safarova, Ivanovic and Jankovic en route to the title. So she surely has good memories on these clay courts. Martinez Sanchez has had problems with her right thigh lately and had to withdrew from tournaments in Miami and Barcelona due to this injury. So this will be her first singles match in some time but we could see her in action already in Madrid last week and she reached semifinals in doubles competition. Sofia Arvidsson is a player who clearly prefers faster surfaces and indoors hardcourts suit her game best and she won her second WTA Tour title in Memphis earlier this year. The two have met last year on clay courts in Bastad with Arvidsson surprisingly winning 46 76 76 but Martinez Sanchez was priced as low as 1.20 favourite that time. And now she has good chance to make the Head 2 Head even on her favourite clay courts. This time we can make a tennis pick on Martinez Sanchez with much higher odds than just a few months ago.
