Cincinnati 2014 : day 2

Maria Sharapova vs Madison Keys

The Championships - Wimbledon 2013: Day ThreeMadison+Keys+2013+BNP+Paribas+Open+Day+4+xxizEUSF2WGl

 

Sharapova plays young American Madison Keys and this could actually be a close match. Maria lost last week to Suarez Navarro in a match where she was putting huge number of balls out of  the court.Madison is hard-hitter and have a massive serve and shots.Maria have to stay calm and just to try to extend rallies. By the experience on her side, I think that Maria will clinch this, but it won’t be an easy match.

Prediction: Sharapova in 3 sets

 

Andrea Petkovic vs Sloane Stephens

Andrea+Petkovic+Sloane+Stephens+sGOPZZ-kXHWm

 

Andrea is playing pretty well lately. She plays with consistency and she wins matches she’s supposed to win. Sloane is a different story. She had some poor loses lately, but she actually played really well in Montreal and almost edged JJ in over-three-hours marathon. Andrea will wait for her opportunities, while Stephens will attack constantly. It think that this will be an close and high-quality match, but Andrea will be just little calmer in the end.Howerer, if Stephens start to fire her forehands, things could go in different direction.

Prediction: Petkovic in 3 tight sets

 

Victoria Azarenka vs Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova

Victoria+Azarenka+Barbora+Zahlavova+Australian+lthPFuXSxU0l

Azarenka was clearly injured in her match against Radwanska. Is she full recovered? If she’s not, that could be a problem because Barbora isn’t an easy opponent. Barbora will make Victoria run with her deep approach shots, dropshots and volleys. If Azarenka is not fully recovered, she will not have a power to hit throw Barbora. I think it’s time for Barbora’s second top 10 win, but we’ll see what will happen.

Prediction: Zhalavova-Strycova in 2 tight sets

 

Svetlana Kuznetsova vs Camila Giorgi

628x471camila-giorgi-roland-garros-3-672x372

 

Veteran Svetlana will played against full-of-surprises Camila. Giorgi is capable of beating Sharapova, but can lose to Dabrowski. You can never know which Giorgi will be on the court. With her topspin shots and constant retrieving and attacking, Kuznetsova will make Giorgi run. Once Giorgi starts making unforced errors, there will be no stopping. Svetlana just need to play calm and steady tennis, and she will win this match.

Prediction: Kuznetsova in 2 sets

Note: Congratulations to Simona Halep( who is now top 2 player) and Venus Williams(who returned in top 20 after great week in Montreal)! Well done ladies!
