2-0 to Petra Kvitova @ 21/20 (2.05)
Wozniacki returned to the tour belatedly and triumped 2-0 against Kimberly Birrell in Montreal before exiting promptly in the next round. In Cincinnati she suffered a second successive defeat but roared back in style at Flushing Meadows. She now comes up against a top contender and from what the Dane has displayed, she is far from her best. With Kvitova having her number even before she temporarily hung her boots, we expect a straight sets victory for the Czech ace.
Under 21.5 Games @ 21/25 (1.84)
Wozniacki’s triumph against the 227-ranked Tatiano Prozorova came swiftly in only 17 games. On the other hand Kvitova made little work of 65-ranked Cristina Bucsa in the first round, the match finishing in 20 games. In Montreal world number 9, Marketa Vondrousova gave the blueprint to dismantle Wozniacki in 20 games and Kvitova would have added to her already large binder on the Dane as they have played 15 times before. Expect a swift execution by the Czech ace, who should finish the game within 21.5 games and end Wozniacki’s US Open ambitions.
