A Martemyanova – L Petruzelova Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 03:00

My hunch with Pliskova is that she will never make a Slam final again and reach one Slam semi each year like Radwanska did from 2013-16. IMO, Probability (unfortunate event in 2018 for Muguruza) > Probability (Muguruza wins a slam in 2018) Could definitely see Serena winning Wimbledon but only if she either (i) misses the AO and plays RG or (ii) plays the AO and wins it. For me Svitolina screams Slamless having never beaten a Top 15 player in a major before (or any seed in the last 6 slams). Something always gets in the way for 2-time slam champs this decade: injuries/retirement for Li Na & Clijsters, injuries/pregnancy for Azarenka, suspension for Sharapova, attack for Kvitova, inability to handle pressure for Kerber. I can understand your Muguruza pick but I didnt pick her as no player other than Serena has won more than 2 slams in the 2010s. As I dont think either will happen at present, she is not pick pick for Wimbledon.

Her game is probably best suited to WimbledonHaving said that I expect her to have a bit of a dip after time to reflect on what she accomplished last year. I would LOVE to see Garcia win a Slam. She really struggled with her back against Cornet at Brisbane. Im not sure which shed be most likely to win? Even when she was up, she was getting almost no depth or pace on either wing. I hope it wont fall over into the Aus Open.

A top 30 finish. Sabalenka made a big splash at the end of the season with a final showing in Tianjin (such a fab final vs. Sharapova), Fed Cup exploits and her biggest title in Mumbai. Aryna Sabalenka:One of the most exciting personalities on the tour. One to watch in 2018 and I think shell be a seed for the final Slam of the year in 2018.

MATCH SUMMARY

I see that she finished at number 14 and she will have gained confidence from those wins and if she can continue that good form next year then it will not take much for her to get into the top 10 at the end of 2018. The WTA website has Julia Goerges as winning one WTA title this year which made me wonder if I imagined her winning two in a row during the autumn.but they are wrong so I am not going mad !

If she stays healthy, I dont see why Bencic cant be knocking on the door of the worlds top 25, perhaps higher. Bencic closed the season on a 15 match winning streak. All I see from Bencic is her going up, up and up. Belinda Bencic:You all know im big on Bencic and her recent run of form has not surprised me in the slightest never write off BB!

Elina Svitolina:Ive really changed my opinion on Svitolina having seen her as a top 20 player in the past. 1. The growing intent to become more aggressive was clear to see during many of her matches in 2017 and I admire her resilience on court. She came close to the big Slam breakthrough in 2017 but just came up short on a few occasions. The next big obstacle is translating her form at the Premier events to the Slams. Top of my list of newbies to win a first Slam. Svitolina has improved her season-end ranking every single year she has been on the tour and I think she will do it again in 2018.

CiCi Bellis:A rough end to the year but Bellis showed plenty of promise during 2017 and hit a career high ranking of 36 in August. For me, her mentality on court is one of the best ive seen from all of the up-and-coming players. Id expect her to push on up into the worlds top 20in 2018 and reach her first Slam quarter-final.

Tennis - ITF W15 Chornomorsk

Ill never lose hope that she will be able to put it all together on a consistent basis and improve her focus in matches. A top 12 finish. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova:Always been a fan of Pavlyuchenkovas game and I firmly believe that she is one of the cleanest ball strikers of the game. Pavs is currently at her best ranking for over six years and she did this with just one win at the last three Slams of 2017.

Despite injuries in 2017, I actually thought Sharapovas level was decent and she seemed highly motivated as ever. 9. Maria Sharapova: The prospect of S.Williams, Sharapova and Azarenka all playing at the same time could be a fascinating plotline in 2018. If she can stay healthy, I think that Sharapova will sneak back into the worlds top ten again with at least one deep run at a Slam. While I think all three fully fit and playing regularly would crack the top ten again, the only one ive gone for in my list is Sharapova.

I hope that you are right about Maria Sharapova. She is still Box Office and good for tennis in my opinion. Do worry that some of her past injury problems will return though and she is now 30 so I am not convinced about her making the top 10 in 2018 but really hope she does. Love her determined attitude and fighting spirit and she did well in the circumstances when returning from her ban.

Betting odds

Backing up a breakthrough season is never easy, yet Barty will get a headstart considering she was forced to go through qualifying for big events as recently as in August. 6. Barty has a great attitude and is one of the coolest customers on the WTA tour. In my opinion, she has it all serve, forehand, variety and a general understanding of the game. Ashleigh Barty: Readers of this blog will know that im very fond of Barty.

Petra Kvitova: As the dust settles on a dramatic and emotional 2017 season, im just thrilled that Kvitova is playing tennis again. Even with playing half a year and with such uncertainty, Kvitova landed a top 30 finish in 2017. Now she has made the comeback to the tour, I think Kvitova will be able to focus more on her tennis and get back to where she belongs in the rankings. 7. Even with her hand still not at 100%, there were flashes of pure brilliance in 2017.

The top 10 is followed by the ones to watch with a selection of players that ill be following with interest in 2018. Every year is difficult to whittle it down to a top ten and this year was no different. As always, id love to hear all your predictions for the new year! Following on from the dissection of2017 predictions on Moos Tennis Blog, here are the 2018 predictions.
