Indian Wells 2017: March 10th WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[11] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Heather Watson (GBR) – 2 years ago this battle of the Brits might have been a 50-50 match in my eyes.  Right now, I think Konta is the clear favorite.

[7]
Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Kirsten Flipkens (BEL) – Muguruza does not seem to have shaken off her French Open hangover yet.

[3] Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs. Monica Puig (PUR) – Puig is certainly capable of winning this match, but Pliskova has been playing top notch tennis for 6 or 7 months in a row whereas Puig had a great run in Rio.  Odds favor Pliskova playing better in this match. 

[32] Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) vs. (WC) Kayla Day (USA) – The veteran’s story is not done in my view.

[5] Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) – This could be interesting for some time, but I think Cibulkova wins in 2 or 3 sets.

[29] Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) vs. Louisa Chirico (USA)

[10] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – Svitolina should win this match as she has a lot of momentum.

[8] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. Johanna Larsson (SWE)

[33] Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs. Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) – Wonder Twin Powers Activate?

[26] Roberta Vinci (ITA) vs. Madison Brengle (USA) – An upset?

[15] Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) vs. Monica Niculescu (ROU) – Match of the day?

[17] Barbora Strycova (SUI) vs. Sara Errani (ITA) – This could go the distance.

[24] Daria Gavrilova (AUS) vs. Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) – I love Daria’s potential, but I am not sure where her form is in 2017.

[21] Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs. [LL] Evgeniya Rodina (RUS)

[19] Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) vs. [Q] Anett Kontaveit (EST)
