French Open 2016: May 25th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Rain makes some of these picks feel like Groundhog Day

[3] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Kiki Bertens (NED) – If Kerber is not still in her Grand Slam hangover, she should win.  If not, it may be a quick trip to Paris.

[1] Serena Williams (USA) vs. Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) – Title #4 begins here?

[26] Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs Francesca Schiavone (ITA) – This should be a fun match.  The former French Open champion is still kicking, but I think she loses in 3.

[14] Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs Oceane Dodin (FRA) – I think she wins, but I don’t think she will last long in the event.

[9] Venus Williams (USA) vs. Anett Kontaveit (EST) – See above

[5] Victoria Azarenka (BLR) vs Karin Knapp (ITA) – How is Vika’s back?

Alizé Cornet (FRA) vs. Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)

[28] Andrea Petkovic (GER) vs. [PR] Laura Robson (GBR)

[Q] Ipek Soylu (TUR) vs. [WC] Virginie Razzano (FRA)

[31] Monica Niculescu (ROU) vs. Pauline Parmentier (FRA) – I am bullish on the Romanian WTA answer to the Spanish Armada.

[23] Jelena Jankovic (SRB) vs Tatjana Maria (GER)

[18] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. [Q] Sorana Cirstea (ROU) – I like Svitolina.

Samantha Crawford (USA) vs. Timea Babos (HUN)

[8] Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) vs Silvia Soler-Espinosa (ESP)

[12] Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP) vs. Katerina Siniakova (CZE)

[15] Madison Keys (USA) vs Donna Vekic (CRO) – Keys played so well in Rome that this should be fun.

[22] Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs Saisai Zheng (CHN) – Cibulkova should advance.

Monica Puig (PUR) vs. Olga Govortsova (BLR) – Every time I pick Puig she loses.

[Q] Louisa Chirico (USA) vs. Lauren Davis (USA)

Yulia Putintseva (KAZ) vs. [PR] Aleksandra Wozniak (CAN)

Kurumi Nara (JPN) vs. Denisa Allertova (CZE)

Irina Falconi (USA) vs. Mona Barthel (GER)

[WC] Alizé Lim (FRA) vs. Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Prego

[20] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Julia Goerges (GER) – This should be a fun one.

[27] Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) vs. Varvara Lepchenko (USA) – To Finish 57 64 41 – I’ll stick with my original pick.

[29] Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER)

Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) vs. [Q] Sachia Vickery (USA)

Laura Siegemund (GER) vs. Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) – Genie has lost a lot lately, but this seems like a manageable match.

[WC] Taylor Townsend (USA) vs. [WC] Amandine Hesse (FRA)

Qiang Wang (CHN) vs. [WC] Tessah Andrianjafitrimo (FRA)

[21] Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs. Misaki Doi (JPN) – To Finish 62 13 – Sticking with my original pick even if Sam looks decent to this point.

[WC] Arina Rodionova (AUS) vs. Ana Konjuh (CRO)

Teliana Pereira (BRA) vs. Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) – Czech mate?
