Talented Day can make Muguruza work for victory

American teenager on the rise

Kayla Day took Garbine Muguruza to three sets at Indian Wells
1 of 1

WTA Bank of the West Classic
BT Sport 1, 6pm Wednesday
Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza makes her return to action in the second round of the WTA Bank of the West Classic but the Spanish player might have to work hard against Kayla Day.

The American teenager won the US Open girls' title last season and impressed in the opening round as she breezed past world number 81 Misaki Doi.

Muguruza is a wonderful player but she tends to save her very best for the biggest stages. She has won only two tournaments in her career outside of Grand Slams and is never one to put much faith in on the regular tour.

Bet365 offer a standout 9-2 about Day recording the unlikely victory but that might be too ambitious in the early stages of her promising career.

She took Muguruza to three sets in their only previous meeting - at Indian Wells in March - and is 11-8 to win a set but the best way to support the 17-year-old could be to back her on the games handicap with a 5.5-game start.

Recommendation
K Day +5.5
