Tokyo, Seoul 2014 – Finals

Wuhan is starting tomorrow, but I don’t have time to write analysis for the 1st day of that tournament. I’ll just write predictions. I have to write my article about Na Li’s retirement and predictions and analysis for Monday. Keep reading my blog, I’ll keep writing. 🙂

Ana Ivanovic vs Caroline Wozniacki

Ana played amazing at this tournament. In the first round, she had a bye. In the second round she beaten former world no.1 Victoria Azarenka in 2 sets – 6:3 6:4. Then she beaten her nemesis Lucie Safarova 6:3 6:2. And finally, in the SFs, she beaten no.1 seed Angeliquer Kerber 7:5 6:3. Ivanovic played great in all of her matches. Wozniacki had a bye in the first round too. Then she beaten qualifier and former top 30 player Jarmila Gajdosova after comeback 4:6 7:5 6:3. In the QFs, she beaten Carla Suarez Navarro who had amazing year in 2 sets – 6:3 6:3. And finally, in the SFs, she beaten rising star Garbine Muguruza in 3 sets – 6:4 2:6 6:2. Wozniacki played great in all of her matches except her 2nd round match. Ana will be the aggressor in this match. She’ll use her biggest weapon( forehand ) to control the points. Her variations will help her to stay in longer rallies with Caroline. Wozniacki will play her patient game and she’ll get back lot of Ana’s shots. Both players are in amazing form, but I believe that Ana will be stronger and that she’ll win her 4th title this year. We’ll see what will happen.

Prediction: Ivanovic in 3 sets

 

Karolina Pliskova vs Varvara Lepchenko

Pliskova reached her 2nd final in 2 weeks. Wow! She played pretty good at this tournament. In the 1st round, she beaten aggressive Julia Glushko 6:1 6:2. In the second round, she beaten rising star Anna-Lena Friedsam in 3 sets – 6:4 6:7(5) 6:2. Then, in the QFs, she beaten qualifier Nicole Gibbs 6:3 6:4. And finally, in the SFs, she beaten always-dangerous Maria Kirilenko after comeback 4:6 7:6(5) 6:3. She played solid in all of her matches. Lepchenko beaten Australia’s Olivia Rogowska 6:1 6:2. Then she beaten wild card Han 7:5 6:1. In the QFs, she pulled upset of the tournament by beating no.1 seed Agnieszka Radwanska after comeback – 6:7(4) 6:2 6:2. And finally, in the SFs, she beaten fellow American Christina McHale 3:6 6:1 7:6(5).  Lepchenko saved match point when she was 4-5 down in the 3rd set. Overall, Varvara played pretty good in all of her matches. Both players are playing very aggressive. Pliskova have powerful serve and massive groundstrokes. Her main weakness is her movement. Lepchenko have tricky left-handed shots and serves. Both players are in pretty good form this year, but I think that it’s time for Karolina to win her 2nd WTA title. She played in 3 finals this year – this is 4th!

Prediction: Pliskova in 3 tight sets

  1. Uffff. Ana scared me in the match with Kerber. I thought she will lose at 5-4 for Kerber in 1st set, but from that moment she played unbelievable. A lot of winners, especially with her forehand, and beside of this she stayed very good on rallys. She don’t panic, and force Kerber to miss a lot of shots. A great victory for her, and this is the 6th final of the year. Congrats!
    In final will be another tough match, but I still remember their last meeting when Ana defeat Caroline in 2 sets. Hope Ana will do a great match, and if it does, she will win the trophy!
    And of course: I want Karolina Pliskova to beat Varvara Lepchenko! 🙂

    Свиђа ми се
