WTA Eastbourne – Semi-final Match Previews/Predictions

Semi-final #1 (5) Angelique Kerber vs (8) Caroline Wozniacki

Both Angelique Kerber and Caroline Wozniacki have returned to some decent form this week after struggling by their standards this season. Kerber clinically dismantled Ekaterina Makarova yesterday whilst Wozniacki battled past Camila Giorgi in one of the matches of the tournament thus far.

These two have a rather lengthy history, they have come up against each other of 7 previous occasions. It is Kerber who holds the slight edge in the head-to-head, the German has come out on top in 4 of the 7 matches. These two were famously or perhaps infamously involved in an 'epic' moonball rally last season at Indian Wells. Kerber has won 4 of the last 5 meeting between the two which is quite significant. This will be the first time the two will come up against each other of grass. It is tough to predict a winner here but one thing is for sure, there will be a lot of long rallies and both ladies will fight for every single point. Once again I'm going to go with Kerber, she has really impressed me this week.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to defeat Caroline Wozniacki 7-5 6-4
