WTA Prague Day 1 Predictions Including Petra Kvitova vs Rebecca Sramkova

Petra Kvitova Fed Cup 2014

With Wimbledon concluded, the 2021 WTA Prague Open on hard courts will get underway on Monday with a set of matches highlighted by home star Petra Kvitova. Here is your look at all the matches.

Giulia Gatto-Monticone vs Greet Minnen

Gatto-Monticone is just 3-15 on the WTA Tour in her career, Greet Minnen qualified for Wimbledon and has 15 of her own tour level wins in her career. Nothing in Gatto-Monticone’s game or resume suggests she has the upper hand in this match, Minnen should get off to a winning start. Minnen in 2

Nina Stojanovic vs Vitalia Diatchenko

Diatchenko leads the h2h 3-2, and qualified for both Birmingham and Wimbledon to snap a significant losing streak prior. Stojanovic was a semifinalist in Nottingham and has won the last two meetings between these players however, this should be a quality match, with Stojanovic getting the win in the end.

Petra Kvitova vs Rebecca Sramkova

The qualifier Sramkova has a tough task ahead of her, Sramkova, who’s highest career ranking is 111, has a very limited resume of WTA Tour level matches and is taking on an experienced opponent who will be smarting from her defeat in the opening round of Wimbledon and looking to get off to a good start at home. Kvitova has a WTA title this season and has been respectable overall, a defeat looks unlikely here. Kvitova in 2

Lizette Cabrera vs Asia Muhammad

The qualifier Muhammad has a winnable matchup against Cabrera, who has played a very limited schedule this season. Muhammad has never had success at the WTA Tour level but Cabrera’s record is also quite poor. Given Muhammad made it through the qualifiers with such ease I’ll give her a slight edge. Muhammad in 3

Maddison Inglis vs Tereza Smitkova

Inglis is yet another Australian player who has only played in limited matches this season, still, this season accounts for all of her WTA Tour main draw career wins, Smitkova had a massive 2015 season and reached the WTA top 60, only to fall off the map after that. This isn’t an easy matchup to predict but Smitkova is playing closer to home and almost qualified for Wimbledon, I give her a slight edge. Smitkova in 2

Sam Stosur vs Grace Min

One of these players will break a long losing streak in this match, Stosur has the resume but simply isn’t the player she was, it’s been a very difficult European Summer for the famous Australian. Min’s quest to return to the WTA top 100 has gone nowhere for a couple of years now as she’s been unable to win matches at this tour level. My gut tells me Stosur is the one who walks away with a confidence boosting win. Stosur in 3
