Indian Wells 2017: Kuznetsova vs. Vesnina Championship Prediction

Singles Final (8) Svetlana Kuznetsova VS (14) Elena Vesnina This match is not what I or the tournament directors expected.  It is intriguing and could be a huge feather in Vesnina’s cap or a strong statement about Kuznetsova still being able to win big events late in her career.
