~Simona Halep( Champion of Moscow 2013) and Caroline Wozniacki( Champion of Luxembourg 2013)

Now…Predictions! 😀

-Alize Cornet vs Lucie Hradecka

Alize’s year was really solid. She had some great results and she can really be proud of herself. Lucie’s year was not so great, but she found her form lately. Cornet is the favorite here, but Hradecka is always unpredictable. Alize will play her standard game. She’ll use her topspin forehand and steady backhand to be aggressive and her slices and drop shots to disrupt Lucie’s rhythm. Her footwork will be helpful too. Hradecka is really powerful player, but her lack of consistency always let her down. She plays forehand and backhand with two hands and that makes her shots even more unpredictable. She’s powerful just like Kvitova and Serena, she have a massive serve but sometimes she just can’t find a court with her shots. I don’t know who will win this match, but something is telling me that Lucie will win. I don’t know why I’m saying this but heyyy, it’s almost the end of the tennis season so I’ll take a risk! 😉

Prediction: Hradecka in 3 tight sets

-Sabine Lisicki vs Daniela Hantuchova

Sabine’s year was full of ups and downs but she’s finding her form again. Hantuchova’s year was pretty much poor. No really good results, lot of shocking losses…I’m not sure what is happening with Daniela but I think that all these years on the WTA tour really drowned her. She still have her fighting spirit, aggression and good net play, but there’s no consistency. Against powerful Sabine I honestly don’t believe that Dani have a chance. With some massive groundstrokes, powerful serves and surprising drop shots, Lisicki should win this easily. If she manages to lose this, I will be very worried.

Prediction: Lisicki in 2 sets

-Caroline Garcia vs Aleksandra Krunic

Garcia had a great year, but she’s always unpredictable. Her season had 4 parts – she played bad before Acapulco, she played great until the Roland Garros, she played bad again until Wuhan and now she’s playing well too!!! Krunic had a time of her life at the US Open, but she didn’t win a match since than. I think she have a problem with an injury, but I’m not sure. Garcia will be the aggressor in this match. She’ll keep firing her powerful groundstrokes and serves all over the court. Alex will chase everything down and she’ll try to extend the rallies and she’ll wait for Caroline’s mistakes. I think that this will be a good match, but I think that Garcia will win in the end.

Prediction: Garcia in 3 sets

-Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Ana Konjuh

Anastasia’s year was highlighted by her Premier level title in Paris, but since than, she didn’t do anything special. Konjuh had her breakthrough this year and she’s really confident about her chances in this match. Pavs is really talented and powerful player, but she had a lot of injuries this year. Both are playing very aggressive, especially Konjuh. For those who love to watch massive hitting, I recommend them this match. Ana is fearless and if Anastasia is not on her best I doubt that Pavs can beat her. I think that we’ll see an upset here.

Prediction: Konjuh in 3 rollercoaster sets
