Eugenie Bouchard vs Bojana Jovanovski

Genie’s American tour has been quite poor. She lost  her both openers, but she’ll try to win couple of matches in New Heaven. She will need to work hard if she wants to record her first win at the American tour, because Jovanovski is not an easy opponent. This will be good test for Eugenie. Serb have patient hard-hitting game and she’s mostly baseliner. Bouchard should use dropshots to make Jovanovski come to the net and to disrupt her game.With Eugenie’s very aggressive game, I don’t see how she can lose this. I think that every set will be tough, but Bouchard will prevail.

Prediction: Bouchard in 2 tight sets

 

Sara Errani vs Garbine Muguruza

Sara’s passive game is pretty strong on clay, but too weak for american fast courts. Garbine will exploit Sara’s lack of power with her powerful groundstrokes. However, if Errani get back lot of balls and Garbine make to many errors, things could go in different direction. Only thing that Errani can do is to disrupt Muguruza’s rhythm with her moonballs, dropshots and slices. I think this will be very interesting match, but power will prevail.

Prediction: Muguruza in 3 rollercoaster sets

 

Elina Svitolina vs Shuai Peng

Elina played fantastic in Cincinnati. She reached QFs, beating Kvitova and Suarez Navarro along the way. Svitolina is really growing in a steady and consistent player. Peng is always unpredictable and specific opponent. She have two-handed forehand and her shots are hard to predict. However, Chinese isn’t really good mentally. She almost always loses tight matches and I think this won’t be exception. This will be interesting match with lot of winners and lot of errors, too. I think that Peng will lead in third set, but Svitolina will come back and eventually win.

Prediction: Svitolina in 3 tight sets

 

Dominika Cibulkova vs Andrea Petkovic

This should be interesting. Dominika was playing fabulous in the first quarter of season 2014, but now she’s not playing well. Petkovic plays consistent, but she lost last week to Stephens pretty easy. I’m not sure what will happen here. Dominika have explosive power in her strokes, but her serve is anything except explosive. Petko needs to exploit Domi’s slow serve to win easy points. If Cibulkova is on, she’s pretty dangerous, but I haven’t seen her playing well in a while. We’ll see what will happen here, but I think that Petko will be stronger in the end.

Prediction: Petkovic in 3 sets
