Cincinnati 2014: Day 3 WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

This I can comprehend, but I don’t expect to see it again.

[1] Serena Williams (USA) vs. Samantha Stosur (AUS) – Stosur can beat Serena Williams, but I am not expecting a repeat of the 2011 US Open final.

[7] Genie Bouchard (CAN) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) – This is not easy to call since Bouchard lost in such a curious manner in Montreal, but she is the favorite.

[3] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Elina Svitolina (UKR) – This match depends a lot on Petra’s level of play.

[4] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. Kurumi Nara (JPN) – Radwanska looking to build on her Canadian success.

[13] Flavia Pennetta (ITA) vs. [Q] Taylor Townsend (USA) – I think the veteran will win.

[9] Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs. [WC] Christina Mchale (USA) – AI should win this match.

Sloane Stephens (USA) vs. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova (CZE) – Sloane came through in straight sets versus a tougher opponent today.

[8] Jelena Jankovic (SRB) vs. [Q] Annika Beck (GER) – JJ is a slight favorite here

[6] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – Kerber is my favorite so take my predictions with a grain of salt.

[14] Sara Errani (ITA) vs. Sabine Lisicki (GER) – Errani should be able to overcome Lisicki’s serve.

[15] Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. [Q] Pauline Parmentier (FRA) – The qualifier’s run ends with a one-handed backhand from Suárez Navarro.

[16] Lucie Safarova (CZE) vs. [Q] Zarina Dyas (KAZ)
