Hopman Cup Prediction, Canada vs Germany
?? Eugenie Bouchard vs ?? Angelique Kerber
I’m going to side with Kerber here despite Bouchard winning 4 of their last 5 matches. On a hard court, Kerber won their only previous match, an easy 6-4 6-2 win at the 2016 Olympics. Kerber was far more impressive in her opening match at the Hopman Cup, Kerber showed a great intensity and commitment and played at a really high level throughout the match. Bouchard on the other hand was lacklustre and I don’t see any evidence that she has it in her to defeat someone of Kerber’s level the way she is playing at the moment.
