Victoria Azarenka vs Kimiko Date-Krumm

Victoria finally found some form at the US Open. She’s still not on her best, but she’s improving every day. Evergreen Kimiko is still playing pretty well and she’s always dangerous opponent for everyone. Azarenka is consistent hard-hitter, but her movement is not that great in this moment. Kimiko’s flat powerful shots, wicked slices and good net play can trouble anyone on the tour. However, she lost some matches lately because she was getting too tired to play well for the whole match. Victoria’s shots will make Kimiko run and she’ll get tired after probably one set. She will give a good fight in first set, but Victoria will win second easily.

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

 

Donna Vekic vs Maria Kirilenko

Donna really struggles with her consistency this year. She’s capable of wining titles, but she had some shocking loses too. Maria is making a comeback after her injury, but it’s not going well. She didn’t play a lot of matches this year and she must keep playing if she wants to make a real comeback. This match should be interesting. Donna is a powerful hard-hitter, but her shots lose their purpose sometimes. Maria is a patient hard-hitter and she have good running shots too. If Maria can play consistently, Donna will beat herself. I really want Vekic to reach her full potential, but I don’t think that this will happen in this match. Maria have experience on her side and she should be able to beat Vekic.

Prediction: Kirilenko in 2 tight sets

 

Magdalena Rybarikova vs Francesca Schiavone

Magdalena is playing pretty well lately. She reached finals of the New Haven and she pushed Wozniacki to three set at the US Open. Unfortunately, Magdalena had to retire that match in 3rd set. Schiavone is playing pretty solid. She reached semi-finals at the Hong Kong. Magdalena is an aggressive player who uses a lot of backhand slices, powerful forehands and net play. Schiavone is always dangerous with her topspin shots and amazing defence. This match will show you how two players with lot of variations can make an amazing match. This will be tight, but Magdalena is in better form now, so I believe that she’ll win this match.

Prediction: Rybarikova in 3 sets

 

Bojana Jovanovski vs Monica Niculescu

Bojana played well in Tashkent where she reached finals. She’s not really consistent this year, but still she showed some signs of improvement. Monica’s year was full of ups and downs. She played solid at the US Open where she lost to Zahlavova-Strycova in 3 sets.This match will be interesting. Bojana is consistent baseliner, but her main weakness is that she’s afraid to come to the net. Baseliners mostly are not good at the net, but Bojana is really bad. She have a lot of potential, but she must learn how to play at the net. Monica is a player who uses A LOT of variations. With her tricky shots, she’s pretty dangerous for hard-hitters with no variations. Jovanovski will fight till the end, but Niculescu will edge her.

Prediction: Niculescu in 3 tight sets
