Porsche Tennis GP, Stuttgart R1 Prediction
?? Barbora Strycova vs. ?? Laura Siegemund
I’m going to give the edge to Strycova in this inserting opening round match in Stuttgart. Neither player heads into this match with a great deal of confidence. Strycova is in poor form having lost her last 4 matches whilst Siegemund is only a month into her injury comeback.
I think Strycova is more match fit and more match tough heading into this match, which gives her the slight edge. There is huge pressure on Siegemund here as the defending champion, there have been no signs since her return to the tour that she can replicate last years stunning form at this year’s event. Strycova is a great competitor and I expect her to be too tough here.
