WTA TASHKENT

WTA TASHKENT

BLINKOVA TO BEAT BONDARENKO @ 11-10

Blinkova has had a good season on hard courts with her win-loss record reading 8-3 compared to Bondarenko’s 15-14 and she will see this as an opportunity to get some ranking points towards the end of the season and she will put a lot of pressure on Bondarenko’s serve with her aggressive return game. 

SABALENKA TO BEAT RODINA @ 11-10

Sabalenka leads the head to head 1-0. Rodina can struggle on hard courts due to her lack of power. Sabalenka has an impressive 56-21 record on hard courts this season and her job now is to try to transfer that across to the main circuit. 

DIATCHENKO TO BEAT MARIA @ 7-4

Maria leads the head to head 1-0. Diatchenko is the better player on hard courts 14-4 win-loss record this season compared to Maria’s 7-13 win-loss record.

DAVIS TO BEAT PETKOVIC @ 6-4

Davis leads the head to head 1-0. Petkovic has struggled this season as shown by her 10-11 win-loss record compared to Davis 16-10. Davis will be too consistent for Petkovic here.

MERTENS TO BEAT OSAKA @ 21-20

Mertens has had a fantastic 2017. Osaka is a good player but very inconsistent and I favour Mertens to come through with her consistency 

NICULESCU TO BEAT BERTENS @ 5-4

Niculescu leads the head to head 2-1 winning both their meetings on hard courts. Bertens has really struggled on hard courts this year with a 4-11 win-loss record compared to Niculescu’s 12-8. Bertens has lost her last four and looked woefully out of form and lacking in confidence. 

WANG TO BEAT STEPHENS @ 9-4

Wang leads the head to head 1-0, I expect Stephens to struggle for the rest of this season after her victory at the US Open and will look to oppose her whenever I can.

VEKIC TO BEAT ZHANG @ 9-4

Zhang leads the head to head 3-1. Vekic has been in excellent form this year and she has risen back up to the top 50. She should not be over 2-1 to win this game, Zhang is a decent player and it should be a close game but if Vekic’s serve works well then she will be very difficult to beat here.
