Karolina Pliskova will win

Karolina Pliskova – Polona Hercog Match Prediction | 11-09-2019 07:00

She has had excellent performances interspersed with mystifying losses to lower ranked players. Pliskova has only lost once. Hercog, both lower ranked and in poorer form, registered a commanding win over Meiling Wang, but lacks the firepower to take on a player like Pliskova. Pliskovas form has been iffy in 2019. Karolina Pliskova and Polona Hercog have played five times. Currently ranked number two in the world trailing Ashleigh Barty by only 376 points, Pliskova started 2019 auspiciously by defeating Serena Williams at the Australian Open.

Her third-round opponent, Hercog, has not enjoyed such smooth passage into the last 32. Jim:After what has been a largely indifferent season, at least by her high standards, Stephens has impressed in her opening matches at the French Open, seeing off Misaki Doi and Sara Sorribes Tormo without dropping a set.

Dog of the day

Karolina Pliskova won her first round match comfortably as she broke her opponents serve on 6 occasions. With Karolina Pliskovas great form and exceptional record in Hong Kong, she will be very hard to stop. Karolina Pliskova has an exceptional record at the Hong Kong Open as she won the event in 2014. 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.

Carla Suarez Navarro will do her best to grind her down, forcing Vondrousova to play more balls than shed like. Neither Wang nor Potapova were easy opponents. Shes obviously here to play. Yet, Vondrousova dropped just 11 games between those two matches. Tracey:Its been no easy feat for the teenage Czech to get to the Round of 32.

Jim:After Kiki Bertens misfortune in being forced to withdraw and Naomi Osakas shaky start, Pliskovas title chances seem to be improving by the day. Backed by her big serve and an underrated return, she certainly looks set to do some real damage in the draw.

Jim:Its never easy to have a match delayed overnight, so Bencic will surely be thrilled to have won so quickly on the restart. That should give her more time to prepare for what looks like a tricky clash with Vekic for a place in the fourth round. Both women are excellent ball-strikers so expect a high-quality encounter.

Damian:Restarting a match on the next day from 4-4 in the decider is not an easy task, but Belinda Bencic managed to come out of the blocks in great shape and finish off Laura Siegemund in just two games.

Hercog can play some good matches but with players with bad ranking, she doesn't has some speciality or some weapon who can help her to beat players like Pliskova.

Riske and Zheng have played six times with Riske winning four of those encoutners. Alison Riske pulled of a major upset defeating Angelique Kerber in three sets, saving a match point along the way. While she might be marginally fresher for the match today, she will also have less of a clear indication of where her game is in Zhengzhou. Saisai Zhengs first round was smoother. Zheng, however, won their most recent match in straight sets last year in Hiroshima. Riskes win against Kerber is a sign that she is already comforatble in China and ready for a deep run.

Kiki Bertens has never lost to Ajla Tomljanovic. Bertens had a seemingly underwhelming run on American hard courts for a woman with her ranking, exiting in the round of 16 in Canada, the first round in Cincinnati and the third round of the US Open. Bertens will likely find a way past Tomljanovic as she has before: with some difficulty. Both of their previous matches went to three sets. Bertens, currently in the top 10 sits thirty eight spots above her opponent. However, a look at her opponents in those matches: Bianca Andreescu, Venus Williams, and Julia Gorges puts the losses in some perspective.

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. Ostapenko, however, has proven that, on her day, she can defeat anyone. Ostapenko blasted her way to a French Open title in 2017. 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. 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. Since then her all or nothing game has been more nothing than all. Her first match in Zhengzhou illustrates this. During that tournament her average forehand speed was higher than Andy Murrays. 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.
