US Open 2015: September 3rd Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [20] vs. Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) – I don’t think this will be a completely straightforward win for Vika as Wickmayer is tough, but I think Vika wins.

Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR) vs. Simona Halep (ROU) [2] – This feels like a trap match to me, but I think Halep advances.

Petra Cetkovska (CZE) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) [4] – So long as Wozniacki is not worried about defending points, I think she advances in straight sets.

Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) vs. Samantha Stosur (AUS) [22] – Can Stosur enjoy a NY renaissance?

Petra Kvitova (CZE) [5] vs. Nicole Gibbs (USA) – If Petra handles the elements, she wins this match.

Sara Errani (ITA) [16] vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) – Steady play wins the day?

Camila Giorgi (ITA) vs. Sabine Lisicki (GER) [24] – Sabine could easily find herself in the final 4 in NY.

Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Garbine Muguruza (ESP) [9] – Too much game to lose here

Flavia Pennetta (ITA) [26] vs. Monica Niculescu (ROU) – Flavia is really hard to eliminate.

Mona Barthel (GER) vs. Olga Govortsova (BLR)

Kurumi Nara (JPN) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA) – Homecourt edge?

Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) vs. Varvara Lepchenko (USA)

Danka Kovinic (MNE) vs. Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK) [32]

Karin Knapp (ITA) vs. Angelique Kerber (GER) [11] – These two dueled in Cincinnati in 2013.  Kerber won then and is playing better now than she was then.

Barbora Strycova (CZE) vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – I picked a lot of Czechs in round 1, and it did not turn out well.  Well, I have not learned anything I guess.
