China Open 2016: WTA Semifinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

(11) Johanna Konta VS (8) Madison Keys – I am bullish on Keys in 2017.  She has pushed a lot of the top players hard in 2016 and has taken some painful but potentially character building losses along the way.  Still, Konta is on the cusp of the top 10 and has a wave of momentum.  If Konta can win this match in 2 sets, I think she wins.  Konta taking the first is something I expect to happen.  I was terribly wrong last weekend in my picks, but my gut says Konta wins this match.

(16) Elina Svitolina VS (3) Agnieszka Radwanska – Aga could be making a late season push.  Svitolina is a huge talent in my view.  I see this as being a close match on paper, but I will lean toward the veteran ever so slightly.
