Day 5 – 1/1
Davis d. Ostapenko in 3 sets – *Update – I’ve just seen Ostapenko’s press conference from today and she seems to be suffering from a cold… as I was already 50-50 and on the fence, i’ve now gone for Davis*
Konjuh d. Goerges in 3 sets – Like above but with a little more confidence in Konjuh coming through this one.

Day 4 – 0/3
Strycova d. Davis in 3 sets – First time match-up… Davis is dangerous, wouldn’t be surprised to see the upset.
Brengle d. Ostapenko in 3 sets – Glad to see Ostapenko start the year in some good form so she could power through this one. On the other hand, Brengle has the type of game that could drive her wild and see her game unravel. This will be a tester for Ostapenko.
Konjuh d. Osaka in 3 sets – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this match-up! I thought I read that Konjuh was injured but she powered through her second rounder against Wickmayer. Went for Konjuh pre-tournament, probably just edging towards her but really not much to call between these two. Could be a huge-hitting clash.
Wozniacki d. Goerges in 2 sets – Goerges has always been a brutal match-up for Wozniacki in the past with the pair level at 4-4. Sticking with Caro in two tight.

Day 3 – 2/3
S.Williams d. Brengle in 2 sets – Serena for the win.
Wozniacki d. Lepchenko in 2 sets – Lepchenko won their last match in Stanford but Wozniacki wasn’t fully fit from what I can remember. I’d take Caro in straights.
Davis d. Nara in 2 sets – If you sneak back into 2016, Davis has won 17 of her last 21 matches including upsetting the number five seed in Kiki Bertens in the first round.

Day 3 – 2/4
V.Williams d. Lewis in 2 sets – Venus for the win.
Pavlyuchenkova d. Goerges in 3 sets – A toss up, no strong feelings on this one other than indecision!
Konjuh d. Flipkens in 3 sets – Intriguing match-up, Konjuh to start and end strongly.
Kovinic d. Broady in 3 sets – A toss up, instinct with Kovinic.

Day 2 – 6/9
S.Williams d. Parmentier in 2 sets – Serena for the win.
Osaka d. Beck in 2 sets – High on Osaka for 2017, perhaps a little too high! Inconsistency is still a concern for Osaka, particularly against a player like Beck who gets a lot of balls back into play, but I think Osaka should prevail in this match.
Erakovic d. Ostapenko in 3 sets – I’m feeling a dramatic three setter. Ostapenko hasn’t won a match since New Haven, but it’s a new year so hmmm? Really clueless with this one.
Wozniacki d. Gibbs in 2 sets – Fancy a comfortable start for Wozniacki.
Strycova d. Stefkova in 2 sets – Interestingly, the pair played a three set thriller back in 2013, which Strycova only just won, 3-6 7-6(4) 7-6(2). Stefkova is maturing on tour but equally, Strycova has improved so much in the past two years
Bertens d. Davis in 3 sets – Slightly wary of Davis’s excellent end to 2016 but Bertens in the end.
Wickmayer d. Larsson in 2 sets – Although Wickmayer hasn’t won a match at the last two editions of the ASB Classic, she has a great record here from previous years and has won both matches she has played against Larsson in the past two years.
Barthel d. Lucic-Baroni in 2 sets – I originally went for MLB in my draw predictions but now i’ve seen the qualifiers, i’ve gone for Barthel after a confidence-boosting qualifying run.
Brengle d. Loeb in 2 sets – I don’t know a great deal about Loeb so one to watch. Brengle can be a tough player to break down.
