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. I don’t have a ton to…

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,…

Cincinnati 2016: WTA Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD (9) Carla Suárez Navarro VS (2) Angelique Kerber – I think Kerber should eventually solve CSN so long as her nerves about the quest for #1 doesn’t get the better of her (a real possibility). (5) Agnieszka Radwanska VS (3) Simona Halep – Aga has more feel and variety than Halep, but…

Cincinnati 2016: August 18th WTA Predictions

Both are in action today Predicted Winners in BOLD (Q) Daria Gavrilova VS (3) Simona Halep – In a few years, this meeting might be in a final rather than a round of 16.  I think Halep wins, but Gavrilova is a good fighter on court and could win.  Halep needs to play clean tennis to keep this match…

BOUCHARD Eugenie vs. KERBER Angelique – The…

Rio Olympic Tennis: August 7th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD WILLIAMS Serena vs. GAVRILOVA Daria – The surface is slow and Serena is facing a fast young player.  That could cause some problems.  I think Venus’ loss will have Serena even more focused for this match as well as her doubles match with Venus today.  So long as Serena doesn’t drown…

Montreal 2016: WTA Quarterfinal Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD [5] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [9] Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) – I like Halep in this match due to her mobility and tenacity.  Still, Kuzy is a veteran with a big forehand who just posted another nice win in 2016 in beating Petra Kvitova.   [2] Angelique Kerber (GER) vs. Daria Kasatkina…
