The Moscow native will be going into the contest in much better shape than the American. She’s 4-2 for the season as she made it through to the pre-quarters of the Apia International in Sydney after qualifying. Moreover, the 28 year old has reached the round of 32 on two occasions in the previous three years, while Venus—who hasn't picked up her Racket as yet this summer—has been susceptible to premature exits in the Victorian capital. She endured a humiliating 2-6, 6-0, 9-7 first-round defeat to No. 94 Tsvetana Pironkova in 2006, and was knocked down by No. 46 Carla Suarez Navarro in the round of 64 in 2009.
Still, the Florida resident is a fierce competitor and the fans will be assured of a good show from the 2003 finalist. Venus will certainly do everything possible to entertain her admirers as this could turn out to be her last Aussie Open. And there’s reason to believe that Williams can surprise us all, too. The American was last in action at the WTA Luxembourg Open, clinching the title and climbing to No. 25 in the rankings.
The meeting will be the first competitive tie between Venus and the Kazakh and Williams has some serious work to do if she has to overcome Voskoboeva. The US citizen’s biggest obstacle will be not succumbing to the unforced errors that Voskoboeva will be able to draw out of her.
Venus has the advantage in both the departments - skill and muscle, and if Serena’s sister is fit, she must reign.
Prediction: Williams in three.
