Serena played superb against Ivanovic. She won 6-4 6-4. Serena fired 12 aces and 4 double faults compared to Ana’s zero aces and 7 double faults. It was a high-quality match and both played well. Match was full of stunning rallies and amazing shots. Simona played really well against Bouchard. Eugenie made far too many errors but Simona was very calm and steady. Looks like she’s back on the top of her game.  This match is very exciting for me. Serena leads against Simona in their head-2-head 3-0 but their last match was in Cincinnati last year. Simona took away one set from Serena but it was in 2011 at Wimbledon.  Serena will play her extremely aggressive tennis and she’ll control most of the points with her massive serves and powerful groundstrokes. Against Ivanovic, Serena showed her hunger and desire to win title in Singapore so I believe that Williams will be extra motivated to win this match. Simona will play her consistent tennis. She’ll chase down everything she can and she’ll try to be aggressive from the baseline. Simona is playing very well in this moment but Serena is a whole new level. Halep will give her best but it won’t be enough to harm current world no. 1.

Prediction: Serena in 2 tight sets

 

Ana Ivanovic vs Eugenie Bouchard

Ana played very solid against Serena. She had problems with her serve but everything else was on her standard level. She dropped her serve in the end of both sets. Eugenie played on very low level against Halep. Maybe she had a problem with her injury, maybe she was nervous…Who knows! But if she continues to play on that level, she’ll stay winless in Singapore. Against in-form Ivanovic, she needs to play her best tennis. Bouchard leads against Ivanovic in their head-2-head 2-0. They played one of those matches at this year’s Australian Open in QFs. Eugenie won 5-7 7-5 6-2. Both are really aggressive and powerful. Ana’s biggest strength is, as always, her forehand. However, her forehand is nicely backed up with solid backhand, tricky slices, drop shots, net play and some defensive shots too. Bouchard  takes the ball early so Ana won’t have a lot of time to react. Eugenie is playing very risky and she’s dangerous opponent when she’s on. Honestly, I don’t think that Eugenie will beat Ana but Wozniacki and Radwanska proved that everything is possible. Ana was more consistent this year so I think she’ll win this match. It won’t be easy but she’ll score her 1st win in Singapore! 😉

Prediction: Ivanovic in 3 sets

Tuesday results:

~ Caroline Wozniacki df. Maria Sharapova 7-6(4) 6-7(5) 6-2 — It wasn’t high-quality match but it was really interesting. Maria kept coming back but in the end she was just too tired. I didn’t expect this result but all credit goes to Caroline! Well done! 🙂

~Agnieskza Radwanska df. Petra Kvitova 6-2 6-3 — Radwanska was at her magical best against Petra. She had some amazing shots and she was very consistent. Petra made a lot of errors but Agnieszka was just too solid. Well done! 🙂

~Monica Puig df. Saisai Zheng 6-4 6-3 — I wasn’t watching this match but well done Monica. She scored 4 wins at this rising stars event and she really deserved this trophy. She beaten Diyas, Rogers and Zheng( twice ). Well done Puig! 🙂
