WTA Montreal Day 2 Predictions Including Petra Kvitova vs Fiona Ferro

Petra Kvitova in action at the US Open

It’s a full slate of tennis action from sunny Montreal, Canada at the National Bank Open, WTA Montreal tournament. We have predictions for all of your day 2 matches including matches featuring Petra Kvitova, Sorana Cirstea, Garbine Muguruza, and Bianca Andreescu.

Zhang Shuai vs Johanna Konta

Konta won their match this year and leads the h2h 6-1, in fact, that match win over Zhang is the last match Konta played this season, as she’s been dealing with a chronic knee injury that has severely limited her tennis this season. Zhang reached the semis in Palermo and the quarters in San Jose most recently, her record has been steadily improving, and with Konta’s physical condition a big question mark, Zhang should have at least an even chance of advancing in this one.

Caroline Garcia vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

Garcia won the last two meetings but Pavlyuchenkova still leads the h2h 3-2, a recent semifinalist in Lausanne and a qualifier at this tournament, Garcia is trying to rekindle the form that put her in the top 10 in years prior. Pavlyuchenkova reached the Roland Garros final, semis in Madrid prior to that, and made runs at Wimbledon and the Olympics, where she comes off the quarterfinals though. Garcia could surprise and Pavs needs to take this matchup seriously, but the Russian is the better player right now. Pavlyuchenkova in 2

Petra Kvitova vs Fiona Ferro

A couple of recent quarterfinals are on Ferro’s resume, while Kvitova reached quarters in Stuttgart, and Madrid, and the semis in Bad Homburg, both players won a match in Tokyo. Kvitova isn’t setting the world on fire right now but she should have a bigger game than Ferro and be able to dictate this match. Look for the Czech to get the job done, though I’m not sure how much further she can go after this second rounder. Kvitova in 2

Petra Martic vs Daria Kasatkina

Martic leads the h2h 2-1 but Kasatkina won their match this year, Martic has struggled for consistency since reaching the semis in Rome and a quarterfinal in Parma on clay. Kasatkina was a finalist in Birmingham and most recently, San Jose, fatigue could be a factor given how many maches she just played, but Kasatkina still should have the upper hand to even this h2h.
