d:own under ’22 #16 | AO ’22 #3

p:redictions and r:esults | round 32

It’s always fun to peruse the fixtures and sort them into two categories, those with one player clearly being expected to win and those, where I have no clue and for which the words ‘could go either way’ are the best way to describe.

c:lear favorite (left name)

  • [1] Barty vs [30] Giorgi | 62 63
  • [13] Osaka vs Anisimova | Anisimova def Osaka 46 63 71065
  • [21] Pegula vs Parrizas Diaz | 763 62
  • [6] Sakkari vs [28] Kudermetova | 64 61
  • [19] Mertens vs Zhang S | 62 62
  • [7] Swiatek vs Kasatkina | 62 63
  • [2] Sabalenka vs [31] Vondrousova | 46 63 61
  • [14] Halep vs Kovinic | 62 61

c:ould go either way

  • [4] Krejcikova vs [26] Ostapenko | 26 64 64
  • [24] Azarenka vs [15] Monfils | 60 62
  • Keys vs Wang Q | 46 63 71062
  • [8] Badosa vs Kostyuk | 62 57 64
  • [27] Collins vs Tauson | 46 64 75

  • Cirstea vs [10] Pavlyuchenkova | 63 26 62
  • Kanepi vs [WC] Inglis | 26 62 60

Always indulge in being wrong with my predictions, since that means surprises, keeping the sport alive.
“Take a photo, please. Smile! Think of whatever.”
