US Open 2020: September 1st Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

16 E. Mertens vs. L. Siegemund

V. Tomova vs. 22 A. Anisimova

N. Hibino vs. 10 G. Muguruza

T. Pironkova vs. L. Samsonova

Y. Bonaventure vs. 25 S. Zhang

S. Cîrstea vs. C. McHale – Match of the Day?  Maybe.  Two of my favorite players squaring off in the 1st round is unfortunate.

M. Gasparyan vs. M. Puig – Could she find her 2016 Olympic form?

H. Watson vs. 9 J. Konta – Battle of Britton

N. Vikhlyantseva vs. K. Scott

V. Zvonareva vs. L. Fernandez – My first nostalgia pick of several on this slate of matches.

L. Davis vs. A. Cornet

C. Liu vs. S. Sorribes Tormo

K. Ahn vs. 3 S. Williams – Serena’s quest for another US Open title should get off to a good start.

A. Kalinskaya vs. N. Stojanović

Y. Wickmayer vs. 2 S. Kenin – Upset alert? Maybe.  First-time major winners tend to have a hangover effect and Wickmayer is no easy opponent.

K. Siniaková vs. K. Kanepi

J. Teichmann vs. A. Bolsova Zadoinov

27 O. Jabeur vs. K. Kawa

V. Azarenka vs. B. Haas – The conqueror of Cincinnati (humor me) should keep momentum on her side.

26 S. Stephens vs. M. Buzărnescu – This event could help Stephens recapture some positivity.

V. Kužmová vs. C. McNally

5 A. Sabalenka vs. O. Dodin

I. Świątek vs. 29 V. Kudermetova

7 M. Keys vs. T. Babos – Keys has been close at majors.  Can she win here?

B. Pera vs. Z. Diyas

P. Țig vs. K. Nara

K. Clijsters vs. 21 E. Alexandrova – My head says this is unlikely, but Clijsters is a three-time US Open champion.

V. Diatchenko vs. O. Govortsova

18 D. Vekić vs. K. Plíšková

S. Vickery vs. T. Townsend

15 M. Sakkari vs. S. Vögele – A player to watch

20 K. Muchová vs.  V. Williams – Nostalgia pick?  Maybe, but I think Venus can do some damage in NY.cropped-ashe-roof2.jpg
