Wimbledon 2017: Ladies’ Round of 16 Predictions

Predicted Winners in Bold

CENTRE COURT (1 p.m. start)

[10] Venus Williams (USA) vs. [27] Ana Konjuh (CRO) – The recent news about the wreck has to ease Venus’ mind to an extent.  This is a match that could go either way, but Venus plays her best tennis on grass and has an experience edge.


No pressure on Konta …

[6] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. [21] Caroline Garcia (FRA) – The 100 Years War?

No. 2 Court (11:30 a.m. start)

[1] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. [14] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) – The past two runner-ups at Wimbledon will put on quite a show.  If Muguruza attacks Kerber’s second serve well, my pick will look foolish.

[2] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [PR] Victoria Azarenka (BLR) – I am starting to like Halep’s chances here as the expectations game is much lower on grass than it is on clay, but her game benefits from some aspects of grass.


[7] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs [9] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) – This would not be an upset.

[5] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs [24] Coco Vandeweghe (USA) – See above


[4] Elina Svitolina (UKR)  vs [13] Jelena Ostapenko (LAT) – Svitolina has the ability to take more steps than she took last year at Wimbledon.


[PR] Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) vs [Q] Petra Martic (CRO) – One of these two has a golden opportunity to crash the final four.  Who will it be?

  1. I always like to cheer for Kuznetsova, but I have Polish roots, so it probably will be Radwanska.

      I like Kuznetsova too. She can win, but if she is error prone Radwanska should win the match.
