WTA Prague Day 2 Predictions Including Mona Barthel vs Viktoria Kuzmova

Viktoria Kuzmova ASB Auckland

Action from WTA Prague continues on Tuesday with the first round of the draw completing. We have predictions for all the matches including the set of matches that features Urszula Radwanska vs Nuria Parrizas Diaz.

Mona Barthel vs Viktoria Kuzmova

Kuzmova won their only meeting, the former top 50 player from Slovakia has struggled since 2019, and hasn’t made a significant run this season other than a quarterfinal earlier this season. Barthel is 4-11 on the season and is also far away from her past success as a former top 30 player. Given the h2h, I give Kuzmova a narrow advantage in this one. Kuzmova in 3

Anastasia Gasanova vs Lucie Havlickova

Havlickova is a 16 year old promising Czech talent who only has some experience at the ITF level, Gasanova is at a career high ranking and made it to the main draw as a lucky loser. This is the first year she’s played WTA tour level matches and the signs of improvement are clear. Havlickova may have a brilliant future ahead, but winning this match looks difficult. Gasanova in 2

Leonie Kung vs Xin Yu Wang

Switzerland’s Kung found success at the ITF level, especially in 2020, and is now looking to translate that to the WTA Tour, Wang has struggled at the WTA level in her career, posting a 5-18 record, though she did qualify for Wimbledon and has done well at the ITF level as well. I give Kung a slight edge although this could go either way and Wang will have momentum from Wimbledon. Kung in 3

Conny Perrin vs En Shuo Liang

Neither player has ever reached the top 100, and both are in this draw as lucky losers. Perrin has played well at the ITF level but is 0-6 on the WTA tour in recent years, Liang’s record at both ITF and WTA level is relatively poor this year and Perrin should have an advantage. Perrin in 2

Naiktha Bains vs Ysaline Bonaventure

Bains qualified and will be playing just her third career WTA Tour level match, on the ITF circuit she’s struggled for consistency. Bonaventure continues to try to crack the top 100, the quarters in Hamburg is her most recent result, given that success, she should have the upper hand against Bains. Bonaventure in 2
