Second round action will complete on Thursday at the WTA Istanbul tournament with top seed Elise Mertens among the players taking to the clay. Here is all your predictions.

Elise Mertens vs Viktorija Golubic

A difficult match for Mertens who had an easy time in the opening round while Golubic needed three seats against Diaz. Golubic is playing well above her ranking, while Mertens is close to the game’s elite. I’m expecting a battle but have a difficult time predicting Mertens defeat as Golubic has won most of her matches against lesser opposition. This is a proving ground match for the Swiss. Mertens in 3

Veronika Kudermetova vs Kaia Kanepi

Kanepi beat Kudermetova twice in 2019, Kanepi’s round 1 win was a bit more routine as well, indicating the veteran is a bit better positioned to get an edge against the rising star in this matchup. Kanepi in 2

Ana Bogdan vs Barbora Krejcikova

Ana Bogdan won just her third match of the season in round 1, Krejcikova is playing much better tennis and has been at a higher level for much longer than Bogdan as of late. This should be one way traffic. Krejcikova in 2

Vera Zvonareva vs Fiona Ferro

The veteran Zvonareva should be an even chance against the much younger Ferro, Zvonareva just beat Ferro in three sets on indoor hard courts in Russia, this match is tough to predict but like Zvonareva’s grit here to get yet another WTA match win. Zvonareva in 3
