Prediction Results: 21/31 (68%)

Final (0/1)

Kerber d. Pavlyuchenkova in three setsPreview

Semifinals (2/2)

Kerber d. Suarez Navarro in three setsPreview

Pavlyuchenkova d. Garcia in two setsPavlyuchenkova has won their two previous encounters. The Russian’s fight and aggression shown in her match against Babos, I think that would happen once again against Garcia.

Quarterfinals (3/4)

Kerber d. Watson in two setsWatson is erratic while Kerber is the steady one. Kerber’s level has been great in Monterrey too!

Cornet d. Suarez Navarro in three setsI was going to go with Suarez Navarro but picked Cornet in the end! Both haven’t lost a set in Monterrey so far, should be close.

Garcia d. Boserup in two setsIf Garcia doesn’t defeat Boserup, I’ll be shocked.

Pavlyuchenkova d. Babos in three setsPreview

Round 2 (7/8)

Kerber d. Minella in two sets – Kerber’s match against Schiavone seemed like a high quality encounter – both players were hitting the ball quite well in a short highlight video I watched! Minella is playing well this year, but she doesn’t have the weapons to cause Kerber troubles.

Makarova d. Watson in two setsWas a more comfortable encounter then I predicted, Makarova beat Allertova pretty smoothly from the scoreline. Think she’ll be able to get past Watson pretty smoothly.

Suarez Navarro d. Sorribes Tormo in two setsSpain vs Spain here, Suarez Navarro has all the weapons to beat Sorribes Tormo if she’s playing well.

Cornet d. Vekic in three setsImpressive stuff from Cornet in her win over Khromacheva! Not sure about going for three sets though, I think the Frenchwoman can navigate past Vekic even in two.

Boserup d. Martincova in two setsToss up, Boserup was great over my predicted quarterfinalist, Hibino, so going for her.

Garcia d. Podoroska in two setsDon’t know much about Podoroska. Garcia has been prone to weird scorelines and losses this year!

Babos d. Broady in three setsBroady can beat Babos on a good day, but just going with the seeding for this one.

Pavlyuchenkova d. Ahn in two setsPavlyuchenkova to make it to the quarters.

Round 1 (9/16)

Kerber d. Schiavone in two setsInteresting to see how Kerber plays this match. Hopefully she plays more aggressively!

Minella d. Kotsova in two setsIn Kerber’s quarter, Minella has won the most matches in the season so far! Kotsova hasn’t won a main draw WTA match yet.

Watson d. Stojanovic in two setsHopefully Watson’s game revives in Monterrey – she’s the defending champ.

Makarova d. Allertova in three setsAllertova has firepower but hasn’t won a main draw WTA match yet. Makarova should grind out the win in three.

Suarez Navarro d. Van Uytvanck in two setsSuarez Navarro has lost three straight matches, having only won one match in 2017. Monterrey’s her chance to gain some points.

Bouchard d. Sorribes Tormo in two setsYou never know when Bouchard’s going to win or lose.

Tig d. Vekic in three setsTig made the third round in Miami last year after coming out of qualifying. She’s playing pretty well, going for her to beat Vekic.

Cornet d. Khromacheva in two setsHopefully Cornet’s injury woes are completely gone, I went for her to make the semifinals in my tournament preview

McHale d. Martincova in two sets – Don’t think Martincova will trouble McHale.

Hibino d. Boserup in two sets Hibino made the final of Kuala Lumpur in March, while Boserup’s best result of the year came in the semifinals of an ITF tournament.

Brengle d. Podoroska in two sets Brengle has been struggling throughout the year, maybe it’s her chance to make a run here?

Garcia d. Zarazua in two setsNot expecting Zarazua to do too much damage against a hard-hitting Garcia. The Frenchwoman has good history in Monterrey, making the finals in 2015 and semifinals in 2016.

Babos d. Kerkhove in two setsBabos should win this.

Bellis d. Broady in three setsOne of my favourite first rounders here in Monterrey! Should be a firecracker.

Cepelova d. Ahn in three setsNever heard of qualifier Ahn before so going for Cepelova. She makes me a little worried though!

Pavlyuchenkova d. Maria in two setsJust realised that Pavs has actually won this tournament thrice! She should do well once again.
