Anastasia Pavlyuchenkov – Kiki Bertens Match Prediction | 19-09-2019 21:00

I look for that poise to be the decider against Ahn. Her playing style was consistent and she could crack a winner when needed. The match key was her poise during the big points. Jordan: This encounter may not have the star power, but it could be a great match. Kalinskaya also pulled off a big upset of former US Open champion Stephens. Ahn took down recent Cincinnati semifinalist Svetlana Kuznetsova in the first round by making first serves at a very high rate.

On day four at the US Open, the top half of the womens draw will clash for a place in the third round. Wimbledon champion Simona Halep, meanwhile, is set to face Taylor Townsend whilst two-time runner-up Caroline Wozniacki is also in action. Set to be in action are defending champion Naomi Osaka, who faces Bronx Open champion Magda Linette, and future star Cori Gauff who will take on Timea Babos. Offering their predictions for this slate of matches are Jim Smith, Jordan Zakery and Tracey Essex.

Jordan: Wozniacki managed to escape defeat in her opening round with a tough three set comeback. She doesnt seem to be the player she once was, but she is a fierce competitor and consistent counter puncher. Despite that I dont see Collins having enough power to hit through the defense of Wozniacki. Collins will have crowd support and did well to hold her nerve to close out a three-set victory in the first-round.

This tournament looks like it might just be the making of Kalinskaya. Jim: Anna Kalinskaya scored a very impressive first-round win over former US Open champion Sloane Stephens, adding to the Americans troubles in 2019. She will certainly have the confidence to do so after her great run through the qualifying. But will the Russian be able to back it up against Kristie Ahn?

Current Offers

The feisty American plays an aggressive game, punctuated by her easy power and clever redirection. Look for Wozniacki to retrieve until Collins gives her the opening to take control of the court. Staunch defence has long been the platform of her career, but in the first round, Wozniacki found the aggressive shot making required to win. Tracey: After seven losses when pushed to a decider, Wozniacki came through against Yafan Wang. That will be vital against Collins. Its the turnaround Wozniacki has been working towards and could see her through to at least the quarterfinals.

Bertens had a tough North American season and it seems like her poor form has continued as she struggled during her previous match. Looking at Kiki Bertens, the Dutch superstar received a bye in the opening round due to her seeding. Bertens last played at the Zhengzhou Open where she was eliminated following her first match. Having said that, Kiki Bertens has an outstanding record in Asia as she has won titles including the Korea Open.

Barring a semi-final appearance at the 2016 French Open and a quarter-final at the 2018 Wimbledon, Bertens has made it past the third round of a Grand Slam competition just once. Having made it to four title-deciders already this year and won two of those four, Bertens is on the prowl to get back to her best ranking of number four but she will need to do a lot better at Grand Slams.

Odds Comparison

Look out, Ahn Kalinskaya claimed 75% of her break point opportunities. Tracey: Had you asked me last week, I would have picked Ahn for the win. Ahn should be confident after a straight sets win over the resurgent Kuznetsova, highlighted by a great serving performance. Kalinskaya moves on to the third round. Today, its Kalinskaya all the way. But the American only capitalized on 30% of her break-point opportunities. The 20-year-old simply got down to business and didnt let up. The Russian qualifier found herself on Arthur Ashe Stadium against Americas beloved Stephens, but showed no sign of nerves nor angst with the crowd support behind Stephens.
