US Open 2017: August 30th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

ARTHUR ASHE STADIUM (11 a.m. start)

Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) vs Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) – Bouchard will need to win another match or two before I begin to believe again.


Timea Babos (HUN) vs. [WC] Maria Sharapova (RUS) – The controversial one assumes the draw of the #2 seed.

[9] Venus Williams (USA) vs. Océane Dodin (FRA) (night session) – Venus should win another USO match.

LOUIS ARMSTRONG STADIUM

[4] Elina Svitolina (UKR) vs. Katerina Siniakova (CZE) 60 66 (2-1) – to be completed


[20] CoCo Vandeweghe (USA) vs Alison Riske (USA) – Sticking with my original predictions for each match even if the Riske pick is a little wild.

GRANDSTAND

[8] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) vs Marketa Vondrousova (CZE) – Kuznetsova won this title in 2004.  Could she do it again?  I don’t expect her to come close, but it has been an odd year that has often favored veterans.

[25] Daria Gavrilova (AUS) vs [Q] Allie Kiick (USA)

COURT 17

Nao Hibino (JPN) vs. Catherine Bellis (USA)

COURT 5

[10] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL)  vs. Petra Martic (CRO) – This could be fun.

[5] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) vs. Ekaterina Makarova (RUS)(not before 4 p.m.) – If this match were later in the draw, I would pick the Wizard of Woz.  Makarova is capable of pulling upsets and this looks like the type of match few seeds want in the second round.

COURT 10

Ons Jabeur (TUN) vs. [WC] Brienne Minor (USA)

[WC] Sofia Kenin (USA) vs. [Q] Sachia Vickery (USA)

[11] Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) vs. [PR] Sloane Stephens (USA) (not before 4 p.m.) – Match of the day?

[30] Julia Goerges (GER) vs. Saisai Zheng (CHN)

COURT 13

[WC] Taylor Townsend (USA) vs. Ana Bogdan (ROU) – Another good match up


Kurumi Nara (JPN) vs. Sara Sorribes Tormo (ESP)


[14] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Alizé Cornet (FRA) (not before 4 p.m.) – This too could be the match of the day.


[Q] Ashleigh Barty (AUS) vs. Aliaksandra Sasnovich (BLR)

COURT 4

Madison Brengle (USA) vs. Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)


[18] Caroline Garcia (FRA) vs. Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) (not before 4 p.m)

Shelby Rogers (USA) vs. [WC] Kayla Day (USA)


[27] Shuai Zhang (CHN) vs [PR] Sabine Lisicki (GER) – Could this be the jumping off point for a comeback?

COURT 7

Veronica Cepede Royg (PAR) vs. [Q] Nicole Gibbs (USA)  06 61 10 – to be completed


[22] Shuai Peng (CHN) vs. Donna Vekic (CRO) (not before 4 p.m.)

COURT 8

Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs. Qiang Wang (CHN)


[29] Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) vs. Carla Suárez Navarro (ESP) (not before 4 p.m.) – MLB wins a clash of veterans and a clash of styles.

COURT 9

COURT 11

[14] Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) vs Monica Niculescu (ROU) 36 11 – to be completed 


[19] Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) vs Christina McHale (USA) – McHale’s NavyOn paper this is not a wise pick

COURT 12

Tatjana Maria (GER) vs. [WC] Ashley Kratzer (USA)


Risa Ozaki (JPN) vs. [Q] Danielle Lao (USA)

COURT 14

[26] Anett Kontaveit (EST)  vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE)
