Montreal 2016: July 25th WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[WC] Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs. Barbora Strycova (CZE) – This is a high quality match.  I think it could go either way, but I had to pick someone.

[13] Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs. Heather Watson (GBR)  – If this match were in a later round, I’d probably pick Watson.  I think Stosur is match tough from her stint in DC and will come through.

[12] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. [Q] Magda Linette (POL) –  Kvitova is an enigma.  It is hard to imagine her being seeded 12th, but that is the reality.

[WC] Françoise Abanda (CAN) vs. [Q] Saisai Zheng (CHN) – Zheng being match tough from the qualifying rounds will hurt the wild card.

Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) vs. Madison Brengle (USA) – Makarova should advance.

[17] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. [Q] Jennifer Brady (USA) – Svitolina has a lot of talent.  Will she be in the top 10 by the end of the year?

Sloane Stephens (USA) vs. [Q] Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Sloane’s play in DC was poor.

Monica Puig (PUR) vs. [Q] Naomi Broady (GBR)  – I love Puig’s hustle on the court.

Daria Gavrilova (AUS) vs. Annika Beck (GER) – This should be an excellent match.  I expect it to go 3 sets.

Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) vs. [Q] Nao Hibino (GBR) – One for the veteran?
