WTA Elite Trophy Day 3 Predictions

Petra Martic vs Madison Keys

H2H- Martic leads 1-0

Nothing seemed to go right for American Madison Keys in her opening match against Zheng Saisai. Sometimes when it gets this late into the season we see some low-quality matches and that was certainly one of them. The round-robin format presents her with the opportunity to redeem herself against Petra Martic, but it’ll be a tough ask. Martic is not the player you want to be playing if you’re struggling to put the ball in the court. I think Keys plays better than she did the other day, but Martic should win.
Prediction: Martic in 2

Alison Riske vs Karolina Muchova

H2H- Riske leads 1-0
Alison Riske faced the tough task today of going up Sofia Kenin. Her loss to Kenin puts her in a tough spot now in regards to advancing past the group stage. Karolina Muchova is playing her first match in Zhuhai and should be in good form after winning the title in Seoul last month. Muchova is currently having the best year of her career and I think that will carry over in Zhuhai. I think Muchova wins here setting up a match against Kenin with the winner advancing to the semifinals.
Prediction: Muchova in 3

Kiki Bertens vs Dayana Yastremska

H2H- Bertens leads 1-0
Dayana Yastremska was able to wear down Donna Vekic, who was playing her second match in as many days. Now it’s Yastremska’s turn to play two days in a row while Kiki Bertens had the day off today. Heading into Zhuhai, I didn’t know how Bertens would handle the disappointment of just missing out on the WTA finals, but she played well in her first match defeating Donna Vekic in straight sets. If Yastremska played the way she did today she’ll keep it close, but Kiki Bertens is a step up from Donna Vekic. I think Bertens wins here and advances to the semifinals.
Prediction: Bertens in 3

  1. I appreciate the information on the matches y’all give here day today at tennis tonic. However the pics tennis tonic suggest at the end of each comparison it’s pointless really because y’all always pick the favorite every time. You might as well just state that the odds say so-and-so is going to win whoever the favorite is basically. I have been looking on this site for a long time now and I have never once ever seen y’all suggest anybody as the winner except for the favorite. That’s really not giving people an educated Sports handicapper prediction. Predictions usually suggest why the handicapper is picking whichever way they happen to be. They don’t just state facts and pick the favorite every time. They state facts and then Give opinions and educated analysis of why they pick a certain way or another. Again I’m not trying be hateful I just think it’s rather pointless and kind of misleading to people that might think you are suggesting these pics as professional handicappers instead of simply following whatever sport book odds suggest.

    1. First of all, this isn’t Tennis Tonic. That’s a different website.

      Second of all, we do not claim to be handicappers. We don’t discuss odds or lines or anything like that. Some readers are interested in thoughts for gambling purposes. Others just want to read thoughts on matches. Our writers look at matches and talk about who they think will win and why. As dedicated tennis fans, our writers are correct much more often than they are incorrect. But we don’t claim anywhere that this is handicapping, and that’s not what it’s meant to be. If readers want to use it that way, it’s up to them.
