French Open 2017: June 5th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP) [21] vs. Simona Halep (ROU) [3] – Halep seems to be the favorite in what has been an all-around crazy French Open.  I think Halep can ground CSN’s game. Caroline Garcia (FRA) [28] vs. Alizé Cornet (FRA) – Cornet is a contender. Elina Svitolina (UKR) [5] vs. Petra Martic (CRO) – Svitolina has had…

Cincinnati 2016: Impressions from Sunday’s Qualifying Matches

It was great to be back at the Cincinnati Masters event today.  I brought my 7-year-old daughter, and she was amazed with the tennis she saw.  The grounds in Cincinnati are pretty relaxed, and we walked next to or past 5 well known players.  The practice courts are always fun and enlightening as well. Alize…

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 8th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD KVITOVA Petra vs. WOZNIACKI Caroline – This should be a fun match.  It is also unpredictable given how many bad losses each of them have had in 2016.  I think Petra should win due to the slow court and her ability to hit through it. BOUCHARD Eugenie vs. KERBER Angelique – The…

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 7th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD WILLIAMS Serena vs. GAVRILOVA Daria – The surface is slow and Serena is facing a fast young player.  That could cause some problems.  I think Venus’ loss will have Serena even more focused for this match as well as her doubles match with Venus today.  So long as Serena doesn’t drown…

Predicted Winners in BOLD Sara Errani (ITA) vs. [WC] Aleksandra Wozniak (CAN) – I don’t think the Canadian wins this match. Genie Bouchard (CAN) vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE) – Again, I think the home crowd will not see what it wants. [3] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. Naomi Broady (GBR) – The Roland Garros champion needs to build some…

Predicted Winners in BOLD 3 Former Champions w/ 13 Total Singles Titles in Action on the Ladies Side of the Draw Serena Williams (USA) [1] v Christina McHale (USA) – Serena will win, but McHale will likely make one set pretty interesting.  Venus Williams (USA) [8] v Daria Kasatkina (RUS) [29] – I am not…

Wimbledon 2016: Day 3 Ladies’ Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Some of these are the same matches I picked yesterday so my brief analysis has been truncated even further [3] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) v Kateryna Kozlova (UKR) – Aga has good feel for grass and it may help her hold serve more easily as well. [16] Johanna Konta (GBR) v Monica…
