A Martemyanova – L Petruzelova Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 03:00

Im with you on CiCi Bellis who looks a very promising young player and I think that she can get her first WTA title in 2018. I also tend to agree with you about Daria Kasatkina who is improving with experience. Surprised she changed her coach but it does not seem to have done her any harm and Ill be following her progress closely.

I had a feeling that Wozniacki would win a slam last year but she didnt, I honestly believed that 2017 was her best chance. I havent commented here in a very very long time because I was swamped with work, but I wanted to see 2018 predictions. I had said very firmly that Kerber wasnt going to win a slam in 2017 and she didnt, similarly I firmly believe that at present top 10 is open to everybody.

I see that she finished at number 14 and she will have gained confidence from those wins and if she can continue that good form next year then it will not take much for her to get into the top 10 at the end of 2018. The WTA website has Julia Goerges as winning one WTA title this year which made me wonder if I imagined her winning two in a row during the autumn.but they are wrong so I am not going mad !

WTA Predictions for 2018

Angelique Kerber:In hindsight, backing up the magnificent 2016 season was always going to be damn tough for Kerber. I like the fact that she has changed coach, to Wim Fissette, in what will be the start of a new chapter in her career. 8. Currently ranked at number 21 in the rankings, I think that Kerber will thrive out of the spotlight and with a point to prove to get back into the worlds top ten.

CiCi Bellis:A rough end to the year but Bellis showed plenty of promise during 2017 and hit a career high ranking of 36 in August. For me, her mentality on court is one of the best ive seen from all of the up-and-coming players. Id expect her to push on up into the worlds top 20in 2018 and reach her first Slam quarter-final.

However quite a lot of players have won their maiden Grand Slam in recent years so maybe it will be the turn for Elina in 2018. You may be correct in placing Elina Svitolina as being number One. Interesting read as always James. She does remind me in many ways of Carolina Wozniacki as they are both fit and slim and do not mind playing in a lot of tournaments so they obtain lots of points to get to number One but they both may lack that extra quality required to win a GS.

I still think that she needs to lose some weight and get fitter if she wants to get back into the top 10 though & I cant see her getting near a GS final until she does. I admire how she has dealt with her comeback from injury by performimg in lower grade events and winning some tournaments. I think that you are probably right about a top 25 for Belinda.

I still remain a tad skeptical as to whether Wozniacki can string together seven match wins and triumph at a Slam. Caroline Wozniacki:Staying healthy was the key factor for Wozniackis stunning 2017 season, as well as notable improvements in her game such as the serve and the forehand. 4. The Dane would likely have to get past an in-form big hitter and on a quick surface, compared to Singapore where she recently triumphed.

Despite injuries in 2017, I actually thought Sharapovas level was decent and she seemed highly motivated as ever. 9. Maria Sharapova: The prospect of S.Williams, Sharapova and Azarenka all playing at the same time could be a fascinating plotline in 2018. If she can stay healthy, I think that Sharapova will sneak back into the worlds top ten again with at least one deep run at a Slam. While I think all three fully fit and playing regularly would crack the top ten again, the only one ive gone for in my list is Sharapova.

I hope that you are right about Maria Sharapova. She is still Box Office and good for tennis in my opinion. Do worry that some of her past injury problems will return though and she is now 30 so I am not convinced about her making the top 10 in 2018 but really hope she does. Love her determined attitude and fighting spirit and she did well in the circumstances when returning from her ban.

Love watching her play and shed be one of my fav players if she had a more sporting attitude etc. Bit surprised that you have not mentioned Jelena Ostapenko. Won her first GS this year and reached the QF at Wimbledon. Only 20 and will have gained confidence from this year and could mature in 2018. Would not surprise me if she finished in the top 10 by the end of 2018.

I think there is a long way to go for Kasatkina in terms of finding the balance between defence and attack, but I do think shes going to be a regulation top ten, top five player in years to come. A top 15 finish. Daria Kasatkina:While not a straightforward year for Kasatkina, she still managed to improve her ranking in 2017.
