US Open 2015: September 7th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Happy Labor Day to My Readers in the US

Vika put on an instant classic vs. Kerber

Varvara Lepchenko (USA) vs. Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [20] – Vika seems to be on a mission to challenge Serena once again at a major.  I think Lepchenko is a talent who is capable of winning this match, but Vika is a distinct favorite to advance.

Samantha Stosur (AUS) [22] vs. Flavia Pennetta (ITA) [26] – Sam has had a great run at this US Open, but Flavia has never lost to Stosur in six matches.  The head-to-head has me leaning toward the Italian veteran.

Petra Kvitova (CZE) [5] vs. Johanna Konta (GBR) – I like Petra here so long as the elements do not get to her.  Kvitova is one of the few players who has enough offense to turn virtually any player into a defensive player if things are rolling for the Czech.

Sabine Lisicki (GER) [24] vs. Simona Halep (ROU) [2] – Lisicki could overpower Halep.  To do this, Sabine will need to serve big and take some cuts when returning Halep’s serve.  I just think that over two or even 3 sets Halep’s consistency will be the difference.
