We have all of your predictions from the WTA Chicago tournament Including Quinn Gleason vs Marketa Vondrousova and Ann Li vs Alize Cornet as it will be a busy day of hard court action in the American Midwest.
Zarina Diyas vs Kristina Mladenovic
The lucky loser Diyas is far removed from her former top 40 ranking, Diyas does have a couple of recent quarterfinals, Mladenovic is struggling, having done nothing of note since reaching the quarterfinals in Nottingham. Mladenovic is well below .500 on tour this season and is beatable, I’ll go with Diyas is an upset. Diyas in 3
Viktorija Golubic vs Maria Camila Osorio Serrano
Golubic won their match at the Tokyo Olympics, Osorio Serrano is in poor form and tends to prefer clay, while Golubic has also cooled off after a fantastic season overall. I would be more confident that Golubic will be the player to find form here and get back on the winning path. Golubic in 2
Venus Williams vs Su-Wei Hsieh
The famous older Williams sister is just 4-16 on the WTA Tour since the start of the 2020 season. Venus can still draw a crowd, but her career is winding down and her best tennis is a distant memory most of the time. Hsieh is also years removed from her best tennis (world #23 in 2013), 6-16 since 2020, Hsieh is also desperate to start winning matches again. 4-2 since Wimbledon, Hsieh’s recent track record indicates she’ll have the upper hand against Williams in this one.
