Pavlyuchenkova has the game to win in Mallorca
Former world number one Victoria Azarenka has been off the circuit since the 2016 French Open but she returns to action at the Mallorca Open this week and has been installed as the 9-2 tournament favourite by bet365.
At anywhere near her best Azarenka would have a good chance of emerging triumphant from a poor-quality field.
However, the Belarusian is unlikely to hit the ground running and preference is for top seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who has a solid grass-court game and has picked up two titles this year, winning in Monterrey and Rabat.
