RADWANSKA TO BEAT KVITOVA @ 7-4
Kvitova leads the head to head 6-5 on outdoor hard courts it is tied at 2-2 with Radwanska winning their last two meetings, as always it will be Radwanska’s skills against Kvitova’s power and simply the match is up to Kvitova as if she plays well she wins but Radwanska has enough skill and defensive skills to make Kvitova claymore balls and raising the risk of unforced errors.
VONDROUSOVA TO BEAT SVITOLINA @ 12-5
I am taking a punt here on a very talented youngster causing an upset, Svitolina is a fantastic player but she will be vulnerable on serve against a highly talented opponent who has nothing to lose and that will make Vondrousova very dangerous here and a fantastic price to cause an upset.
BLINKOVA TO BEAT MLADENOVIC @ 11-8
Blinkova is a very promising talent and her record on hard courts of 36 wins and 12 losses shows this, she is playing with a lot of confidence that youngsters bring before others players work out their weak spots and against Mladenovic her return game will be vital as if she can make inroads then Mladenovic could struggle here as she has not been playing well of late on outdoor hard courts.
BELLIS TO BEAT KEYS @ 9-4
Bellis has been playing excellent tennis this season with a record of 8-3 and her career record on hard courts is an impressive 78-35. I feel with Keys this season she will concentrate on Grand Slam events and I will be looking to oppose her outside of these events and outside of the US as I think she is vulnerable.
