Kuzmova/Sasnovich – Osuigwe/Townsend Match Prediction | 31-08-2019 11:00

And the fourth features Elina Svitolina vs Whitney Osuigwe. In addition to this article, we also have four more sets of predictions. Predicting today are myself (Yesh Ginsburg), Tracey Essex, and Harsh Bhoot. One features Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova. The US Open is here! The third highlights Sofia Kenin vs Coco Vandeweghe. To start, we have to see who will win on Day 1. Were here to predict as many matches as we can for you. Another headlines Saisai Zheng vs Venus Williams. Its the end of the 2019 Grand Slam season. Who will take home the trophy in New York?

Neither player much enjoys coming into the net so the majority of the points will likely be played from the baseline. The Belarussian lacks Ostapenkos outright power off the ground, though there are precious few who can match the 12th seed in that department. But Sasnovich has shown good feel in the forecourt and would do well to come in more. But Sasnovich is impressively consistent from the back of the court and has the footspeed to force Ostapenko to deliver her best offensively.

That attacking power should be enough for Ostapenko to edge this match in three. But where Kvitova looked overcome by nerves, especially in the decider, the Latvian has been playing freely and hitting the ball confidently. Sasnovich has played some fine tennis herself, and defended superbly against Kvitova. When Ostapenko is at her aggressive best she is dangerous, and that has been the Ostapenko we have seen so far at this years Championships.

Tracey:Madison Keys is playing much smarter. Going for the right shot at the right time led her to the win. Now, the Cincinnati Open titleholder seems to have found patience and control. Shes always had incredible power and blistering serve.


Sasnovich, however, has already proven something of a giant killer and will have another big name firmly in her sights. Ostapenko is looking to atone for her early exit at the French Open where she was defending champion but fell in the first round to Kozlova. Jelena Ostapenko will look to advance to her second straight Wimbledon quarterfinal when she meets Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the fourth round on Manic Monday. Who will come out on top?

She began her tournament with a shock upset of the eighth seed and two-time champion Petra Kvitova. After they split the first two sets each by the score of 6-4, Sasnovich ran away with the decider, winning it to love. She then beat Taylor Townsend 6-0 6-4 to advance to the third round where she upset Daria Gavrilova 6-3 6-1. Sasnovich has also been playing extremely well so far during the Championships.

And, McNally already knows the Bacsinszky game, having chalked up a win against the Swiss veteran. Tracey:One of the most notable among the crop of young tennis talent, Caty McNally received a wild card spot in the main draw. Interestingly, she and Coco Gauff got a wild card for doubles. That will certainly help this rising young powerhouse when she squares off against Timea Bacsinszky. The 17-year-old American is one of the fans favorites.

She then demolished 2013 semifinalist Kirsten Flipkens 6-1 6-3 in the second round. Ostapenko then broke Sharapovas conqueror Vitalia Diatchenko five times en route to a 6-0 6-4 victory in the third round. Her first round match was her closest contest, with the Latvian a 6-3 7-6 winner against British wildcard Katy Dunne on Centre Court. The 12th seeded Ostapenko has breezed through the Wimbledon draw thus far, not dropping a single set.

In their first clash, which came three years ago in the semifinals in St Petersburg, Ostapenko recovered from a slow start to win 1-6 6-2 6-4. Both matches have gone the distance, with Ostapenko edging out Sasnovich in both. Their last matchup was at the All England Club last year in the first round, and Ostapenko won 6-0 1-6 6-3 in a match that may bear interesting parallels with this clash. Ostapenko and Sasnovich have met twice in their careers on Tour.

Doubles Betting Odds

Harsh:Caty McNally is only 17 years old but on her home turf, shed be eager to put up a good showing. Bacsinszky has a win percentage of less than 50% this year while McNally has had a breakthrough year. Her opponent is Timea Bacsinszky, who shes already beaten earlier this year at Indian Wells.

Her serve, however, has not been firing with the Latvian posting fairly disappointing numbers except against Flipkens. Neither Dunne nor Diatchenko proved able to punish her, Sasnovich might well be. The Latvian has used her powerful groundstrokes to devastating effect, bullying her opponents into submission. Ostapenko has taken full advantage of the fast grass courts of Wimbledon, which due to the hot conditions are playing even faster than usual.

Puig, meanwhile, has all the potential in the world, yet still also has somehow managed to do nothing special at the Majors or on Tour. Shell always have that Olympic Gold Medalno one can ever take that from herbut its still shocking that she hasnt replicated that on the sports biggest stage. Yesh:Peterson has been solid for most of the year, while nothing special.

The Swede turned in a nice performance at the Western & Southern Open, reaching the Round of 16 before falling to World #3 Karolina Pliskova in a tough three-setter. The Puerto Rican had made some nice improvements under his guidance. Serbian Dusan Vemic will coach Puig in New York and perhaps the change will do Puig some good. Tracey:No doubt Monica Puig is still reeling from surprise of Kamau Murray returning to Sloane Stephens; coaching corner. No doubt, Rebecca Peterson will be a huge challenge for the Gold Medalist.
