😐😐😐#CincyTennis pic.twitter.com/VkeD6s4Mim — W&S Open (@CincyTennis) August 15, 2016 The Weather has Been Great Predicted Winners in BOLD Jelena Ostapenko VS (15) Karolina Pliskova (4) Garbiñe Muguruza VS CoCo Vandeweghe – Coco survived Errani and might nab this win.  Muguruza has been quite erratic since winning Roland Garros (not unlike Kerber’s clay court run). both…

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 6 Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD First, a big thanks to the ATP’s website for listing the men’s schedule.  I had to go to the olympic site to get a listing of women’s olympic matches.  The WTA should list the schedule too.  The women’s slate for August 6th features a lot of good matches so I’ll jump…

Montreal 2016: July 27th WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD These will be quick as my time is limited [4] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) vs. Monica Niculescu (ROU) – This could go either way, but I think Aga has to be the pick. [6] Venus Williams (USA) vs. Barbora Strycova (CZE) – Venus should have had enough time to travel and recover from…

Montreal 2016: July 26th WTA Predictions

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…

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…

French Open 2016: May 26th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Sorry about yesterday’s unplanned hiatus.  As a teacher, this is a busy time, and I could not give any time to tennis yesterday.  [8] Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) vs Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) – Bouchard is having a nice event to this point, but this is a real test.  If she passes it, maybe…

French Open 2016: May 25th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Rain makes some of these picks feel like Groundhog Day [3] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Kiki Bertens (NED) – If Kerber is not still in her Grand Slam hangover, she should win.  If not, it may be a quick trip to Paris. [1] Serena Williams (USA) vs. Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) –…

US Open 2015: September 5th Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Petra Kvitova (CZE) [5] vs. Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK) [32] – I don’t think this is an obvious win for Petra.  However, she is the favorite especially since winning in Connecticut. Could Kerber be part of another 2015 instant classic? Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [20] vs. Angelique Kerber (GER) [11] – Match of the day alert!…

Roland Garros 2014 – Women’s Semifinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD Court Philippe Chatrier (not before 3 p.m.) [7] Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs [18] Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) – Are they friends? Do either want to have friends on the WTA?  …. I don’t really care about any of those memes surrounding this match.  I think two keys exist for this match: 1….
