US Open 2016: September 1st Women’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [5] Simona Halep (ROU) vs Lucie Safarova (CZE) – This battle of two former French Open runner-ups should be fun, but I think unless Safarova’s lefty game and variety bother Halep that this match will be rather one-sided.

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.

[16] Johanna Konta (GBR) v Monica…

Wimbledon 2016: Day 1 Ladies’ Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [2] Garbine Muguruza (ESP) vs Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Post-slam letdowns can happen. ¬†Muguruza also has a lot of points to defend. ¬†A loss here would surprise but not shock me. ¬†Still, she should win.

French Open 2016: Garbine Muguruza vs. Samantha Stosur Semifinal Prediction

Garbine Muguruza vs. Samantha Stosur This match should feature some big shots. ¬†Will the winner be who can play better defense or who can keep from being put on the defensive? ¬†Many of us got our first look at Muguruza’s power when she upset defending champion Serena Williams at Roland Garros 2014. ¬†Since then she…
