First set was tight, Simona Halep was up 3:1, but Danielle Rose Collins quickly rebound. They didn’t lose their serves until the tie-break. Tie-break was one-sided. Simona won just two points and she lost first set. It was massive surprise. However, Halep rebound in second and third set and she eventually beaten American 6:7(2) 6:1 6:2. Collins had flashes of brilliance after first set too, but she didn’t manage to win more that 3 games in both sets. But still, Collins did a great job in first set and she can be proud of herself! Halep have a lot to think about. 🙂

 

Serena Williams vs Taylor Townsend

aobesidade

I can’t hide how excited I am because of this match. One of the best tennis players ever against rising star. Serena played well on the American tour, losing just one match to her sister Venus in semi-final of Montreal. Taylor is playing well this year, but she loses focus sometimes without visible reason. Serena will play aggressive. She’ll use her powerful shots to keep Townsend behind the baseline. However, Taylor will fire bach. She is full of  weapons – massive shots, good slice and drop shot, amazing net skills…I think this will be high-quality and interesting match, but Serena will prevail in two  sets. I can’t wait to watch this!

Prediction: Serena in 2 sets( one tight, one easy )

 

Petra Kvitova vs Kristina Mladenovic

Aegon International - Day Two Kristina-Mladenovic---Wimbledon-2013-Day-1--14

Petra have tough match at the start of the US Open. Kvitova was playing magnificent in the New Haven, she won a second title of the year without dropping a set! Kristina struggles with her form this year, but she’s always dangerous. Even thought she’s not playing that well this year, she managed to upset Simona Halep and Na Li.  This will be exciting hard-hitting battle. Both players are very powerful and they play very risky. In this match, there won’t be a lot of long points because they both hitting the ball as hard as they can. This will be tight match, but P3tra will prevail in the end.

Prediction: Kvitova in 3 tight sets

 

Ana Ivanovic vs Alison Riske

Ana is playing amazing this year. She had a lot of titles, finals, semi-finals…She’s one of the favourites for the title in my opinion. Riske had solid year, but that’s it. I think that she have a potential to do much bigger thing. However, her risky game is  two-sided. She can hit amazing winners, she can miss easy shots. Last year she reached 4th round, but I don’t think she’ll be able to do it again. Ana will use her variations to completely disarm Riske. Ana’s powerful forehand, solid backhand, good slice, good net play and amazing drop shot will prevail. i think that American will take a set because she’s playing well in NYC, but Ana will win third set comfortably.

Predictio: Ivanovic in 3 sets

 

Aleksandra Krunic vs Katarzyna Piter

I wanted to analyse some match between players who are not that famous and I’ve chosen this one. Aleksandra played pretty good in qualifying and we’ll see if she can replicate her form in this match. Both players prefer clay as their favorite surface. Krunic plays with lot of topspin and she knows how to mix the game with drop shots. Piter is fast defensive player who can chase down lot of balls. However, Krunic loves US Open and she’s playing well here. Piter is powerless on the faster surfaces and I believe that Krunic will manage to win this. We’ll see what will happen!

Prediction: Krunic in 3 sets
