Indian Wells 2017: March 17th WTA Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [14] Elena Vesnina (RUS) vs. [28] Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) – Both players are producing some great tennis.  I think Vesnina has slightly more momentum and is slightly more likely to set the terms of this match.  This is close to a coin flip, so I predict Vesnina d. Mladenovic 6-4, 4-6,…

US Open 2015: Mladenovic vs. Vinci Quarterfinal Prediction

Kristina Mladenovic vs. Roberta Vinci Vinci has a great all-court game with a lot of variety.  She is a veteran with an incredible opportunity in front of her.  She also did not have to play her round of 16 match so Vinci should be rested.  Mladenovic has been one of the stories of the 2015…
