WTA New Haven 2016

ANETT KONTAVEIT TO BEAT ANNIKA BECK @  11-8

Beck can struggle on hard courts due to her weak serve and her second serve is just there for the taking, Kontaveit let me down yesterday by winning in three against Kozlova. Beck’s win/loss record on hard courts over 12 months reads 14-13 and throughout her career it is negative with 53 wins and 56 losses. Kontaveit is sitting at 21-11 and career is 48-33. Like I said yesterday she can hit the ball very flat and hard and if on form she causes problems and I think today she will overpower Beck especially on Beck’s service games.

DARIA KASATKINA TO BEAT ELINA SVITOLINA @ 11-10

Both players have good runs at Rio olympics in reaching the QF, then in their next tournament they both lost gist round which is understandable. Win/loss records on hard courts are quite similar Svitolina 28-17 with Kasatkina at 20-11, Kasatkina was known more as a clay court player as her record on the dirt is spectacular but she has improved on hard courts. As you can see from the stats below it is very even but I think Kasatkina’s superior court speed could be telling today and I take her to come through in a tight contest.

IRINA CAMELIA BEGA TO BEAT CAROLINE GARCIA @ 5-4

Begu leads the head to head 2-1 on hard courts it is 1-1, Win /loss records on hard courts are again very similar with Garcia stating at 19-16 and begu 16-11.Garcia has lost in the first round in three of her last four tournaments and not looked in any sort of form at all. Begu has lost in the first round in her last two tournaments but before that she managed to win Florianopolis outright. I ma having another additional bet on the this match as looking at the records in their head to head meeting they have played 8 sets and 4 of those have gone to a tie break, on hard courts it is 5 sets played and 3 tie breaks, tie break to feature in the match is 9-4 with Corals
