Polona Hercog – Meiling Wang Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 02:00

She certainly looked more at ease on court than she has in recent months in dismissing Taylor Townsend 6-3 6-1, a match many expected to be more competitive. But when Halep is at the top of her game, precious few can find a way through. Perhaps most importantly by keeping her from engaging in the sort of destructive negativity that has proved to be her undoing in the past. Simona Haleps new coach, Daniel Dobre, is obviously helping the Romanian. Dobre has worked with the former world #1 before and clearly knows the Halep game, warts and all.

Sloane Stephens made light work of Tatjana Maria in their only previous meeting, which came in Cincinnati last August, losing only five games. She certainly had far too much for Ons Jabeur, thrashing the Tunisian 6-2 6-3 in second-round action. Whilst Stephens has had a tough go of things so far in 2019, the fans at her hometown tournament have offered their vocal support to the defending Miami Open champion. And Stephens looks to be responding, as she searches for the level of play which led her to the 2018 championship.

Chinese #1 Wang Qiang, however, will not be complaining about the Americans absence, as she moves in to the fourth round in Williams stead. But who will join Wang in the last 16? But even without the 23-time Major champion, day five in the Sunshine State should see no shortage of great tennis as, amongst others, the hard-hitting Danielle Collins and defending champion Sloane Stephens take to the court. The star power on display at the Miami Open dimmed with Serena Williams withdrawal from the Miami Open due to a knee injury.

He managed a decent slag season, being defeated in the Madrid final by Kiki Bertens, while at Roland Garros he was defeated in quarter-finals by Australian champion Ashleigh Barty. He debuted excellently in his first tournament on the grass, winning a solid victory against Su Wei Hsieh, a very inconvenient player. He is ranked 7th in the WTA ranking, descending to the standings after being eliminated from the Roland Garros tournament.


But one does rather suspect that if Bencic had been at the top of her game, the outcome would have been much different. In this third round matchup, two out-of-sorts players, hoping to return to their A game, will clash. But Yulia Putintseva, who has had a miserable start to the year, did impress in taking out the in-form, if weary-looking, Belinda Bencic in her second round match. In that match, Putintseva won only 66% of her service points a stat which will need drastic improvement if she hopes to win against the 11th seed.

The Chinese will provide a real challenge and expect Collins to have some tough moments. Thereafter, she was in complete control, blasting through Osuigwe in the second set to wrap up a 7-6 6-0 win. That impressive mentality, a willingness to dig deep and find a path to victory, should stand her in good stead against Wang. In Collins opening match against 15-year-old American Whitney Osuigwe, she came out looking short of focus, but just about managed to claim the first set in a tiebreak. Indeed, another run to the semifinals looks very possible for the University of Virginia alum. But the swaggering American should ultimately have too much.

But Germanys Maria has been in impressive form in her own right so far at the Miami Open. She opened her account with a convincing 6-1 6-4 win over Anna Karolina Schmiedlova before recording another straight-sets win in the second round against Italys 29th seed Camila Giorgi. However, Stephens should have the defensive skills to negate Marias net-rushing attack. Provided she doesnt dwell too long on any errors and missed chances, the last 16 should be well-within reach for the fourth seed.

Indeed, Collins will surely need to find the same form which took her to the semifinals at the Miami Open last season if she hopes to progress. It is a win that will surely only add to her belief, particularly after she won her first title in Acapulco last month. Chinas fourth best broke the Svitolina serve four times to end the Ukrainians challenge. And with that belief wedded to the undeniable talent Wang possesses, she will pose a formidable threat to Danielle Collins of USA. Wang Yafan earned her first top ten win by eliminating Elina Svitolina in the second round in Miami.

Besides this result, Martic managed a quarter-finals in Madrid, semifinals at Charleston, and Istanbul managed to win the tournament after a final with Vondrousova.On the hard did not perform well, only 3 wins in 5 competitions. After a very good clay season, Petra Martic starts his season on the grass at Hertogenbosch, where it is the first time in his career.The Croatian sportsman comes to the Dutch tour after a quarter-final finish at Roland Garros, being eliminated by Marketa Vondrousova finalist of this edition.

Simona starts up as favorite in this match, trying to continue the good shape shown in the previous match. However, the direct matches between the two were very balanced, decided each time in the decisive set. Polona Hercog is already very common with the grass, while Simona has played one match, and I will choose a balanced match as the main prediction, being very likely to be decided again in a decisive set.
