US Open 2016

  MIRJANA LUCIC BARONI

MIRJANA LUCIC BARONI TO BEAT ALIZE CORNET @ EVENS (STAN JAMES)

Cornet leads the head to head 2-0 winning both matches in three sets, both players have been in ok form wining matches and losing with nothing spectacular noted. Win loss records on hard courts are Cornet 15-11 Baroni 11-12. Baroni's all out attacking style can beat anyone on any given day but she can also lose to anyone. I think if she can hit form for at least two sets then simply she wins this as she will too much power for Cornet but she needs to keep her unforced errors lower than in previous meetings.

TAYLOR TOWNSEND TO BEAT CAROLINE WOZNIACKI @ 3-1 (STANJAMES)

Wozniacki has been in poor form for most of the season and since losing first round at Wimbledon she has lost to Stosur, Kvitova and Ostapenko in her last 3 tournaments, in fact she has only reached one SF this season and one QF. Townsend has been in great form on the lesser ITF tour, she prefers the clay as that surface does not expose her poor movement, but equally Wozniacki does not have the weight of shot to expose her movement. With Wozniacki’s poor form I have to take a chance on Townsend.

KAYLA DAY TO BEAT MADISON BRENGLE @ 7-2 (STAN JAMES)

Day is a player of great potential, reaching the SF @ junior Wimbledon this year and also reaching US Orange Bowl final in 2015, 9-6 on hard courts over last 12 months and Brengle is 15-14. The thing here is junior players normally struggle as players will overpower them on court but Brengle does not have that power so Day should feel at ease and her confidence should be sky high having reached the last 32 at New Haven. Brengle has struggled since she performed well at Eastbourne 

0.25 Pts Trixie on the three above selections (1 Pt Staked)


NAOMI OSAKA TO BEAT COCO VANDERWEGHE @ 11-5 (BET VICTOR)  1 Pt Win

Osaka 27-16 win loss record on hard court over last 12 months, Vanderweghe 14-13. Vanderweghe can be over rated and here she is playing a very competent opponent with a return game that is likely to put pressure on Vanderweghe’s serve which is her main weapon.

VANDERWEGHE     68.7%            26.6%


KRISTINA KUCKOVA TO BEAT ANDREA PETKOVIC @ 2-1 (BOYLE SPORTS)  1 Pt Win

Petkovic has a 14-15 win loss record on hard courts over the last 12 months compared to Kuckova’s 21-13. Kuckova has been in excellent form reaching the SF at Montreal and has come through three matches here to qualify for the main draw. Petkovic has not reached a QF final since February and has looked short of confidence lately.
