WTA San Diego Day 2 Predictions Including Caroline Wozniacki vs Anna Blinkova

Caroline Wozniacki at the 2019 US Open

Caroline Wozniacki’s first match since the Australian Open is one of six taking place on the second day of the WTA San Diego Open. Three of those contests are predicted in this article, including Wozniacki’s clash with Anna Blinkova. We at LWOT predict the other three matches in a separate article, including Leylah Fernandez vs Tatjana Maria.

WTA San Diego Day 2 Predictions

Magdalena Frech vs Taylah Preston

Head-to-head: First meeting

Frech is enjoying a great start to the season. She reached the fourth round at the Australian Open and came through qualifying last week to get to the third-round at the Dubai Tennis Championships, where she narrowly lost to Elena Rybakina. It will take a big effort from Preston to overcome the Pole. She does have a lot of natural talent and is likely to hit some great shots during the match. However, Frech is likely to just be too solid for her and will probably win in two sets.
Prediction: Frech in 2

Dayana Yastremska vs Caroline Dolehide

Head-to-head: Dolehide 1-0 Yaastremska

Neither of these players have played their best in recent weeks. Understandably, it has been tough for Ysstremska to come back to earth after her amazing run to the semifinals of the Australian Open. Dolehide has been struggling even more. She has not won a match since her defeat in the second-round in Melbourne. Returning to home soil will probably be a relief to Dolehide. Nevertheless, her recent results mean I am not confident enough to back her against someone with Yastremska’s firepower.
Prediction: Yastremska in 2

Caroline Wozniacki vs Anna Blinkova

Head-to-head: First meeting

Wozniacki skipped the entire Middle East swing. It is clear she has targeted the U.S. swing as a period of the year where she can seriously threaten the big players. Blinkova also elected not to play in the Middle East, and both players will come into this feeling refreshed. Predicting Wozniacki’s matches is tough right now, but I am giving her the edge. Blinkova’s attacking style on US courts is a good matchup for Wozniacki, even if she is no longer in her prime.
Prediction: Wozniacki in 2
