Wimbledon 2017: July 5th Ladies’ Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

CENTRE COURT  (1 p.m. start)

[6] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. Donna Vekic (CRO) – This could be an excellent match, but unless Konta freezes up in front of a favorable crowd, I think Konta advances.

NO.1 COURT

[10] Venus Williams vs. Qiang Wang (CHN) – Venus is playing with a lot going on off of the court in her life.

[2] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [Q] Beatriz Haddad Maia (BRA) – Halep did better than Stan at handling Roland Garros heartbreak.

SHOW COURTS (11:30 a.m. start)

No.2 Court

[18] Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) vs. [WC] Heather Watson (GBR) – Probably a bad pick, but I think the crowd can make a big difference.

No.3 Court

[15] Elena Vesnina (RUS) vs. [PR] Victoria Azarenka (BLR) – Vika could win this match, but I think she needs a little more time on tour before beating top 15 players.

[17] Madison Keys (USA) vs. Camila Giorgi (ITA) – I could see Keys losing here, but I think she can also play her way into form as the tournament advances.

Court 12

[4] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Francesca Schiavone (ITA)

[13] Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) vs. [Q] Françoise Abanda (CAN) – I think Ostapenko will win 3 or 4 matches before the French Open win catches up to her.

Court 18

[8] Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs. Jennifer Brady (USA)

[21] Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs. Ana Bogdan (ROU) 

FIELD COURTS

Court 14

Maria Sakkari (GRE) vs. Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) – Can the Wonder Twins both keep advancing?

[25] Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP) vs. Peng Shuai (CHN)

Court 16

Carina Witthoeft (GER) vs. [Q] Aryna Sabalenka (BLR)

Court 17

[27] Ana Konjuh (CRO) vs. Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) – This could be a nice match to catch if one has a grounds pass.  I think it could go either way, but I will lean toward the seed.

[22] Barbora Strycova (CZE) vs. Naomi Osaka (JPN)
