GAVRILOVA TO BEAT STRYCOVA @ 11-10
Strycova leads the head to head 2-0, neither has been in great form recently but the statistics for holding serve and breaking serve are nearly identical. Gavrilova has the more ability if she is on form and I am taking her to finish the season strongly
KERBER TO BEAT KEYS @ 11-10
Kerber leads the head to head 7-2, Kerbers return game will be key here
KOSTYUK TO BEAT RUS @ 11-10
20-6 compared to 18-11 shows Kostyuk is very much at home on hard courts, she has the better return game than Rus and If Rus serve is a little off then she will be vulnerable as that is a huge weapon to her game.
ZVONAREVA TO BEAT ZIDANSEK @ 11-10
Zidansek is better on clay courts, Zvonareva is a better hard court player and although not operating at the level of old she should have too much nous for Zidansek who is excellent on clay but looks vulnerable on hard courts
KALINSKAYA TO BEAT DANILOVIC @ EVENS
Danilovic has had an excellent season but the majority of her victories have been on clay with a 33-9 record but she does not look as happy on hard courts and against a very exciting player in Kalinskaya then I have to favour the Russian who I expect to be far more comfortable on the surface.
GASPARYAN TO BEAT MARIA @ EVENS
Gasprayan holds serve and break her opponent more than her opponent who really is not happy on hard courts as her record of 9 wins 13 losses in the last 12 months compared to her opponents 20-8 record and she has to be avoided here
