Indian Wells 2017: March 11 WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

STADIUM 1

[2] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Andrea Petkovic (GER) – This is not an ideal match for Kerber who needs some wins.  I still think Kerber wins this match.

[12] Venus Williams (USA) vs Jelena Jankovic (SRB) – I believe Venus wins this battle of two tour veterans and former #1 players.

[20] CoCo Vandeweghe (USA) vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE) – I nearly picked Safarova, but I think CoCo’s strong play in Australia gives her the benefit of the doubt.

STADIUM 2

[4] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [WC] Donna Vekic (CRO) – Halep, like Kerber, needs some wins.

STADIUM 3

[9] Madison Keys vs [Q] Mariana Duque-Mariño (COL)

[14] Elena Vesnina (RUS) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA) – I need to pick an upset somewhere I guess.

STADIUM 4

[13] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs. [Q] Magda Linette (POL)

[6] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. [Q] Sara Sorribes Tormo (ESP)

[22] Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) vs. Lauren Davis (USA) – Could friendly confines help produce a minor upset?

STADIUM 5

[28] Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs. Annika Beck (GER)

[25] Timea Babos (HUN) vs. [Q] Varvara Lepchenko (USA)

STADIUM 6

[23] Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) vs. Katerina Siniakova (CZE)

[16] Samantha Stosur (AUS) vs. Julia Goerges (GER) – I have little confidence in 2017 Stosur.

STADIUM 7

[30] Shuai Zhang (CHN) vs. Naomi Osaka (JPN)

STADIUM 9

[27] Yulia Putintseva (KAZ) vs. Pauline Parmentier (FRA)

[31] Ana Konjuh (CRO) vs. [Q] Shuai Peng (CHN) – This could go the distance.
