Caroline Wozniacki vs Camila Giorgi
Wozniacki is playing pretty well after Roland Garros. She played especially well at the American tour. Camila ended 4-match losing streak at New Haven when she beaten in-form Vandeweghe. Wozniacki-Giorgi matches are always interesting. Camila will be aggressor in this match and she’ll go for her shots. Caroline will chase down everything and she’ll wait for Camila’s errors. Wozniacki always struggles against Giorgi, but Caroline is now playing pretty well. If Camila manages to upset Caroline, that would be real surprise. But hey, Halep lost to RYBARIKOVA. Anything is possible.
Prediction: Wozniacki in 3 sets
Eugenie Bouchard vs Samantha Stosur
Bouchard finally won a match on the American tour and that was impressive victory against solid Jovanovski( 6:1 6:1). Stosur had all kind of struggles against Nara, wasting 3 match points in the second set tie-break, but she eventually won third set. Bouchard will be more aggressive and she’ll try to control points with her groundstrokes and drive volleys. Samatha will use her kick serve and her topspin forehand as her advantages. This will be tough match and good indication to see if Eugenie’s game finally matured.
Prediction: Bouchard in 3 tight sets
Garbine Muguruza vs Shuai Peng
Muguruza played solid against Errani, but again she lost a set when she had a lead. Garbine was leading 3:1 and the she lost 5 consecutive games. Peng beaten in-form Svitolina and she’ll like her chances here. Both players are hard-hitters, but I think that Muguruza have more power. Muguruza is playing powerful from the baseline, but she’s good at the net too. Shuai have two-handed forehand and her shots are hard to predict. The only chance for Peng is that Muguruza puts out lot of balls. Otherwise, Muguruza will win.
Prediction: Muguruza in 3 sets
Andrea Petkovic vs Kirsten Flipkens
Petkovic is clear favorite here. Flipkens struggles this year, losing matches she’s supposed to win. Andrea will use her speed and her solid shots to draw errors from Kirsten. Flipkens will use her backhand slice to discrupt Andrea’s rhythm and she’ll try to go the net whenever she can. Kirsten will maybe put up a good fight, but Andrea will clinch this in two sets.
Prediction: Petkovic in 2 sets
