Bad Homburg, Germany, located near Frankfurt, hosts a WTA tournament for the first time, as part of the grass court warm ups ahead of Wimbledon. Here is your look at the day 1 action featuring a number of German players including Andrea Petkovic. We also have predictions for matches featuring Mona Barthel and Misaki Doi.

Sorana Cirstea vs Andrea Petkovic

Petkovic is a capable player on grass but her form has been terrible this year, as wins have been hard to come by. Cirstea had a solid clay court season and will look to transition that good form to the grass. Cirstea looks set to win this match in relatively routine fashion. Cirstea in 2

Mara Guth vs Nadia Podoroska

17 year old Mara Guth is making her WTA main draw debut at home in Germany, Guth has been playing junior level tennis and taking on Nadia Podoroska is going to be a big step up. Podoroska is at a career high ranking, though her record on grass is basically non existent. With such a limited resume it’s hard to tell what Guth is capable of, for the time being Podoroska is the safe pick. Podoroska in 2 

Rebecca Peterson vs Tamara Korpatsch

Peterson leads the h2h 2-0, Korpatsch is a career journeywoman who has struggled to progress beyond the ITF level, as her ranking has yet to peak in the top 100 despite being on tour since 2015. Peterson has had a decent season and is good enough on grass to stave off the upset here. Peterson in 2
