Cincinnati 2017: August 17th WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[4] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. [16] Madison Keys (USA) – This could very well be the match of a day on a day filled with great matches.

[WC] Sloane Stephens (USA) vs. Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) – I keep getting matches with Stephens wrong so this time I went against my gut feeling.


[2] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [15] Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) – Halep has rebounded nicely from her near miss in Paris.

[5] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Julia Goerges (GEO)

Stadium 3

[6] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs. [Q] Ashleigh Barty (AUS) – Does Wozniacki have any fatigue from reaching the Toronto final?  If so, Barty can pull this upset.

[7] Johanna Konta (GBR) vs. [11] Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) – I keep undervaluing Cibulkova as well.

[1] Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs. [Q] Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Pliskova is the #1 seed and playing on Stadium 3.  She could use a major to help her Q rating I suppose.

Court 10

[8] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs. Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) – Veterans duel
