Our Prediction:

Kiki Bertens will win

Kiki Bertens – Ajla Tomljanovic Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 22:00

Simona Halep should get the victory in this first round, but the prediction chosen by me is a fairly tight game with a high number of games. Ajla Tomljanovic is a player who can cause some problems when he has the opportunity and the match will be a balanced one. Simona starts out as a big favorite in this match, but the Romance usually has some accommodation problems in Grand Slam tournaments.

In the North American tournaments of Indian Wells and Miami, he showed a consistent form, reaching the second round, the third round. The best result of the season won him in Thailand, in Hua Hin, where he reached the final of the tournament. On the clay he took part in major tournaments such as Madrid and Rome, some of them smaller, and the best result he got in Rabat, where he reached the semifinals.

Kiki Bertens vs Ajla Tomljanovic WTA Zhengzhou 2019. Sep 12th.

Bertens has played very well all tournament having only lost one set in the entire event. On the other side of the court, Kiki Bertens looks very comfortable as she won her semifinal match in straight sets. In that win, Bertens only allowed her opponent to win 2 service games which lead to a very comfortable win for the Dutch player. Having recently won the Cincinnati Masters, Kiki Bertens will be feeling comfortable about the situation since she has the experience of winning a WTA final under her belt.

Halep has been shaky heading into the French Open, so watch out for Tomljanovic to come with some extra confidence up her sleeve. Simona Halep will begin her French Open defense this Monday against Ajla Tomljanovic, who has faced the Romanian before, albeit in a different surface.

While Ajla Tomljanovi has done very well to make it this far in the tournament, I see her losing the final and finishing second. Kiki Bertens has been the best player in this tournament and she has not looked challenged in the entire tournament. With the experience of recently winning a WTA title under her belt, I see Kiki Bertens winning another title.

Simones season has been consistent so far, being very close to winning the Doha title in February. Again, clay is found to be the preferred area for the Romance, where it can play its best tennis. In the tournament in Rome, he did not want much against Marketei Vondrousova, a player who managed a second defeat this season after the one at Indian Wells. She won one of the best results of the year in the Madrid tournament, where she got to the last act but was defeated by Kiki Bertens.

Ajla Tomljanovi will need to improve her serve if she wishes to win this match since Kiki Bertens is excellent at exploiting such a weakness. In that victory, Ajla Tomljanovi received serve exceptionally well as she managed to break her opponents serve on 7 separate occasions. Ajla Tomljanovi has never won a WTA title before so she is expected to be nervous heading into this match. Ajla Tomljanovi enters this match having won her semifinal match in 3 sets. This has been a problem that Ajla Tomljanovi has struggled with all tournament as she has lost over 20 service games in this tournament. While that was impressive, Ajla Tomljanovi struggled to hold her own serve as she lost 6 service games.

Its been a topsy-turvy season for Tomljanovic, who has won five of her last 1o matches. First, she has to be more precise on her services. She only put 47 percent of her serves against Zidanek and got broken four times. Tomljanovics loss to Zidanek offers lots of insights as to what she needs to get done before taking on Halep. Tomljanovic managed to take the first set before losing the next two in a hard-court matchup with Halep at the Cincinnati Masters last year to the tune of a 4-6 6-3 6-3 score. Prior to that, she defeated Zidanek in the first round of the Rome Masters before running into a wall in the form of Karolina Pliskova in the next round. At the very least, Tomljanovic wont have as much butterflies in her stomach when she faces Halep, as shes faced the defending Roland Garros womens champ before. That stretch includes her loss to Tamara Zidanek in the round of 16 in Nuremberg this month.

Halep has struggled in some matches of late, but some of those can be attributed to a cold she had to brave through in Madrid, where she made the finals but fell prey to Kiki Bertens to settle for a runner-up finish. Halep has made the finals of the French Open three times in her past five appearances at Roland Garros, which, of course, includes her title last year. Halep is putting 69.5 percent of her first serves in this year and has scored on 65.6 percent of those. In any case, Halep is expected by many to be a force at the French Open, her favorite Grand Slam. Halep will take on Tomljanovic on the heels of an embarrassing and shocking first round loss to Marketa Vondrousova at the Rome Masters. Given Tomljanovics penchant for making errors, Halep should have lots of opportunities to strike.
