Karolina Pliskova – Polona Hercog Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 07:00

Polona Hercog enters this match after winning her opening match in straight sets. It has been a tough few months for Polona Hercog as she has failed to make it past the second round of a tournament since the Bucharest Open in July. This is expected to be a very tough match for Polona Hercog as she is playing one of the best players in the world. This biggest issue for Polona Hercog has been her serve as she has been winning only half of the points played during her service games. In that win, Hercog dominated the important points as she won a tiebreaker in the first round eased victory in the second set.

Ostapenko, however, has proven that, on her day, she can defeat anyone. Ostapenko blasted her way to a French Open title in 2017. Jelena Ostapenko and Aryna Sabalenka, are both exceptional players. She not only showed hard-hitting, but mental strength, coming from behind to defeat Simona Halep in three sets. Her ranking has plummeted and her results have been erratic. She won, but the scoreline was 6-3, 0-6, 6-2. Sabalenka is still on surer footing tennis-wise than Ostapenko and is likely to win. During that tournament her average forehand speed was higher than Andy Murrays. Tursunov announced he was no longer working with Sabalenka, but Sabalenka posted at length on Instagram about how much she valued and needed his help. Sabalenkas on court accomplishments most recently the doubles title at the US Open have been overshadowed by the uncertainty surrounding her relationship with her coach Dmitry Tursunov. Her first match in Zhengzhou illustrates this. Since then her all or nothing game has been more nothing than all.

Karolina Pliskova won her first round match comfortably as she broke her opponents serve on 6 occasions. On the other side of the coin, Karolina Pliskova enters this match as world number. It has been a good few weeks for Pliskova as she had a strong US Open and followed that by winning the WTA Pan Pacific Open. Karolina Pliskova has an exceptional record at the Hong Kong Open as she won the event in 2014. With Karolina Pliskovas great form and exceptional record in Hong Kong, she will be very hard to stop.

Shes 28-15 on the surface, but has only reached the Wimbledon semis once, back in 2014. Alison Riske successfully exploited that weakness last week in sHertogenbosch. For her part, Hercog possesses a big serve and can rip forehands at will, but on the backhand side she relies almost exclusively on the slice. Halep is good on grass, but far from great.

Jabeur is such a crafty player with great hands at the net. Therefore, the 24-year-old needs to land punches via drop shots, or throw in short angled slices to drag the Brit to the net. The Tunisians success on grass at the ITF level, with three trophies, has not translated yet to the main tour. Konta is the vastly superior player from the baseline and will shred Jabeur apart if shes able to dictate.

37 Ksenia Pervak took home the title. For the record, former World No. Its really bizarre these two have only squared off against each other twice, considering they grew up playing the same tournaments. First seed Hercog and third seed Halep were slated to meet in the semifinals, but the Romanian fell in the round of 16 to Marta Sirotkina. For instance, they both participated in the European U14 Championship in Ostrava back in 2005.

In her debut against Samantha Stosur, the German won an outstanding 71% of her second serve return points. Peterson better make a high percentage of her first serves if she wants to make this a competitive match. It might not even matter, though, as the Swede is winless in seven matches against top 20 rivals, on any surface. The reigning Wimbledon champion may not be enjoying her best season, but it would be foolish to rule out a return to dominance on grass, where she has owns a robust track record (69-26 in her career, per Tennis Abstract).

a weapon of mass destruction on grass. Conversely, her 61 in frame makes it hard for her to handle the low, uneven bounces on the surface. Anyway, the second seed owns one of the best serves on tour; i.e. Interesting matchup here. Pliskova, the 2017 champion, suffered a shocking defeat to her twin sister Krystina in Birmingham last week. Or not so shocking, since their head to head stands at five wins apiece.
