As the WTA action shifts to Guadalajara, Mexico, our money is on Eugenie Bouchard to pull off an upset against Veronika Kudermetova. 

The tennis court is about to heat up in Guadalajara as Eugenie Bouchard faces off against Veronika Kudermetova. For those of you looking for the underdog pick with a spicy return, look no further. Eugenie Bouchard is the player to keep an eye on.

Bouchard recently announced she's joining the pickleball circuit. But don't let that fool you into thinking she's hung up her tennis racquet. Far from it. She's still got game and she's about to prove it in Mexico. 

Bouchard has a history of playing well in Mexico. Remember her phenomenal run in 2021 at a WTA 250 event? She was on fire and had one of her best performances in recent years on these very courts. Now, she's back, ready to reprise that magic. We've seen her ability to perform under pressure, and we believe she can do it again.

On the other side of the net, we have Veronika Kudermetova. The Russian player is not to be taken lightly. However, she's been on a losing streak recently, and though she's faced better opposition, it's worth noting that her momentum isn't exactly on the up and up. 

To add to that, we have to consider how Bouchard and Kudermetova matched up five years ago in Gstaad. Bouchard was victorious then, and while past performance isn't always indicative of future results, it gives us a glimpse into how Bouchard might perform under similar circumstances.

Bouchard's serve, return, and groundstrokes have been impressive in the past, and her stats in Mexico have been particularly notable. She's shown consistency in her game, and her ability to adapt to different conditions and opposition makes her a force to reckon with.

Let’s not forget, we’re playing at altitude in Guadalajara. This is a condition that Bouchard has thrived in before, and it could be the edge she needs to tip the scales in her favor.

Now, let's be clear. We're not saying this is a lock. There's no such thing in sports. But if you're looking for an underdog pick with a potential for a good payout, Bouchard might just be your best bet. Personally I recommend taking Bouchard +4.5 Games, I think she will cover this. So, get your popcorn ready and buckle up for what promises to be an exhilarating match between two fierce competitors. We're going all in on Bouchard. How about you?
