WTA Sydney 2016 Predictions

WTA Sydney SF Predictions for Thursday

No previews for today unfortunately… busy day at work and my head is a mess. That will probably be the end of previews for Sydney as I need to prepare for the impending Aus Open. Thoughts on Thursday’s matches…

Halep v Kuznetsova – Halep is a complete mystery to me right now. I saw parts of the second set against Pliskova and she played really well. I’d go for Halep but who knows with the achilles injury?

Bencic v Puig – A great win for Belinda, toughing out a tight match against Makarova. I’m really pleased she has had plenty of matches compared to last year. Puig’s serving stats against Stosur were insane with 14 (!) aces and just two points dropped on serve in the second set. I have a feeling she might keep that run going as she may be more motivated than Bencic as I feel the Swiss player will be content with the matches she has played. Bencic could scrap out another win I guess, but if Puig serves as well as she did against Stosur then i’d fancy her to reach the final.
