Germany’s own Laura Siegemund takes on Sloane Stephens on day 2 of the WTA Bad Homburg grass court tournament, while Petra Kvitova plays her first match against Poland’s Katarzyna Piter. Here is your predictions for all the action, we also have predictions for matches featuring Angelique Kerber and Clara Tauson.

Petra Kvitova vs Katarzyna Piter

With a 16-10 record it’s been a decent but not amazing season for Kvitova, who will be expecting even better results this Summer. Her grass court record is excellent and a run at Wimbledon is certainly possible starting next week, assuming she’s recovered from an ankle injury suffered at Roland Garros. Piter was once a top 100 player but is now well below that, despite the good results in qualifying it would be a shock if Piter could compete with Kvitova in this match given the gap in performance between these players.

Sara Sorribes Tormo vs Martina Trevisan

Sorribes Tormo is hardly a grass court expert but with Trevisan opposite, she will be a heavy favorite all the same. Trevisan has struggled this season (although she’s 3-2 since the French Open started, with all those matches on clay). Sorribes Tormo’s best results this season came on hard courts and she’s already won more WTA level matches this year than in any previous season (dating back to 2015). This match should be straight forward. Sorribes Tormo in 2

Jessica Pegula vs Amandine Hesse

Hesse makes her living on the ITF circuit having never fully broken onto the WTA Tour, Pegula won two matches in Berlin and continues her streak of not making early exits in the tournaments that she enters. Pegula is on a great run of form this season, with an emphasis on consistency. The American hasn’t lost an opening round match since Abu Dhabi in January. That streak looks set to continue given how well she played in Berlin, upsetting Karolina Pliskova in the second round. Pegula in 2

Laura Siegemund vs Sloane Stephens

Stephens enters this match in good form, as she reached the semis in Parma and the fourth round of Roland Garros her last two tournaments on court. Though she’s still a distance from her best tennis, the momentum is clearly positive for Stephens who has previously had success on grass. Siegemund is playing at home in Germany but is just 6-12 on the year and has a mediocre grass court record. Expect to see Stephens make it to the next round and win this one. Stephens in 2
