French Open 2017: May 28th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Julia Boserup (USA) vs. Petra Kvitova (CZE) [15] – I fully admit that my heart is picking this win.  I hope she has a full return to tennis.

Angelique Kerber (GER) [1]vs. Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – This is an awful draw for both players.  Kerber is struggling as the world #1 after her awesome 2016 and strong 2015 results.  I think she wins, but it is a 55-45% type split as Makarova can play and the crowd will pull for an upset.

 Christina McHale (USA) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) [8] – This one is another tough draw for both players.  Kuznetsova has been really strong in 2017 and clay is probably her best surface.

Venus Williams (USA) [10] vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – If this match were not on clay, I’d feel much better about Venus’ chances.

Camila Giorgi (ITA) vs. Oceane Dodin (FRA) – The crowd may make a difference here.

Lara Arruabarrena (ESP) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) [6] 

Monica Puig (PUR) vs. Roberta Vinci (ITA) [31] – If Puig were to rediscover her Rio form, she could go far against this draw.  I don’t see that happening though.
Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) [22] vs. Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR) – The veteran is no longer such an underdog after her run in Melbourne.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA) vs. Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) – The surface matters a lot in this match.

Louisa Chirico (USA) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (LAT)

Amanda Anisimova (USA) vs. Kurumi Nara (JPN)

Madison Brengle (USA) vs. Julia Goerges (GER)

Lesia Tsurenko (UKR) vs. Kateryna Kozlova (UKR) – The battle for Ukraine

Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) [30] vs. Sara Sorribes Tormo (ESP)

Marina Erakovic (NZL) vs. Shelby Rogers (USA)
