Cincinnati 2016: August 16 WTA Predictions

The Weather has Been Great

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Jelena Ostapenko VS (15) Karolina Pliskova

(4) Garbiñe Muguruza VS CoCo Vandeweghe – Coco survived Errani and might nab this win.  Muguruza has been quite erratic since winning Roland Garros (not unlike Kerber’s clay court run).

both are in action today 

(Q) Alizé Cornet VS Kiki Bertens – Is this an upset?

Barbora Strycova VS (Q) Eugenie Bouchard – I am taking a risk and picking Bouchard.

(17) Elina Svitolina VS (Q) Daria Gavrilova – Both came to Cincy from Rio, but Daria came here earlier.  Lack of jet lag might be the difference.

Andrea Petkovic VS Lucie Safarova – Safarova was playing in Rio for a medal on Sunday.  I think she loses to a game Petkovic on Tuesday in Ohio.

(WC) Louisa Chirico VS (Q) Timea Babos – Match tough qualifier > Wild card recipient?

(LL) Johanna Larsson VS Irina-Camelia Begu

(Q) Alison Riske VS (Q) Varvara Flink – Riske looked very solid in person on Sunday.

(LL) Viktorija Golubic VS (Q) Kurumi Nara – Flip a coin?

(Q) Annika Beck VS Yulia Putintseva – Beck is a solid player who also should have confidence from her qualifying matches.

(Q) Kateryna Bondarenko VS Kristina Mladenovic

(LL) Tsvetana Pironkova VS Daria Kasatkina – I have a feeling on this one, but not much else.

  1. (LL) Tsvetana Pironkova VS Daria Kasatkina – I have a feeling on this one, but not much else. How about that scoreline 6-1, 6-1? Wow! Truly impressive. I should have read your blog before making my bets.
