Predicted Winners in BOLD [10] Venus Williams (USA) vs. [Q] Kurumi Nara (JPN) – Venus is back at Indian Wells. [5] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Vania King (USA) – Simona says she is playing better so I guess I should take her word, but this is a tough draw. [5] Serena Williams (USA) vs. [Q]…

Australian Open 2016: Day 1 Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [6] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs Luksika Kumkhum (THA) – I like Petra, but her tune-up absence might be a cause for concern.

Australian Open 2015 – Day 10 Women’s Predictions
