Wimbledon 2016: Day 1 Ladies’ Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[2] Garbine Muguruza (ESP) vs Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Post-slam letdowns can happen.  Muguruza also has a lot of points to defend.  A loss here would surprise but not shock me.  Still, she should win.

[8]Venus Williams (USA) vs Donna Vekic (CRO) – Venus generally plays better at Wimbledon than anywhere else.

[4] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs [WC] Laura Robson (GBR) – MATCH OF THE DAY – Kerber may feel less pressure now that she is not the most recent slam champion.  Still, the crowd should be in Robson’s corner.  I think Kerber wins, but this should be interesting.

[9] Madison Keys (USA) vs Laura Siegemund (GER) – Keys is a contender for this title.

[5]Simona Halep (ROU) vs Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK) – Halep has been hard for me to figure out as a player.  I don’t think grass is her best surface either.  Still, I think she wins this match.

[14] Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs Magda Linette (POL) – Stosur’s strong Roland Garros play makes me think she wins a few matches here.

[17] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs Naomi Broady (GBR)

[23] Ana Ivanovic (SRB) vs Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) – I don’t think Ivanovic will go deep, but she should win her.

[12] Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP) vs Shuai Zhang (CHN) – I have to pick some upsets don’t I?

Sabine Lisicki (GER) vs Shelby Rogers (USA) – Sabine’s serve should do it.

[22] Jelena Jankovic (SRB) vs Stefanie Voegele (SUI) – JJ will last for awhile.

[29] Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs [PR] Victoria Duval (USA)

[25] Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) vs Carina Witthoeft (GER)

Danka Kovinic (MNE) vs Mona Barthel (GER)

Saisai Zheng (CHN) vs [Q] Maria Sakkari (GRE)

Zarina Diyas (KAZ) vs Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER)

Margarita Gasparyan (RUS) vs Denisa Allertova (CZE) 

Teliana Pereira (BRA) vs Varvara Lepchenko (USA)

[28] Lucie Safarova (CZE) vs Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA) – This could go either way especially since the grass is still slick on day 1.

Misaki Doi (JPN) vs Louisa Chirico (USA)

Lara Arruabarrena (ESP) vs Olga Govortsova (BLR)

Nicole Gibbs (USA) vs Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)

Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) vs Francesca Schiavone (ITA)

Jana Cepelova (SVK)  vs Mariana Duque-Marino (COL)

Samantha Crawford (USA)  vs Paula Kania (POL)

[20]Sara Errani (ITA)  vs Patricia Maria Tig (ROU)

Irina Falconi (USA)  vs Marina Erakovic (NZL)

Alize Cornet (FRA) vs Polona Hercog (SLO) – Will there be controversy?

Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ) vs Julia Goerges (GER)

Kurumi Nara (JPN) vs Madison Brengle (USA)

[15] Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs Yanina Wickmayer (BEL)

[26] Kiki Bertens (NED) vs Jelena Ostapenko (LAT)
