Angelique Kerber vs. Su-Wei Hsieh, Dubai R3 Prediction

??? Dubai DFTC – R3 Prediction
?? (5) Angelique Kerber vs. ?? Su-Wei Hsieh

Angelique Kerber will know she needs to be very focused heading into a tricky third round clash in Dubai with Su-Wei Hsieh. Kerber has been in decent form of late and will need to produce a good level here against an in-form Hsieh who has caused Kerber some problems in the past.

Kerber has won both of the previous matches between the pair, however both were 3 set wins from a set down including a memorable win at the fourth round stage of the Australian Open last year. Hsieh played unbelievably well in their match at the Australian Open last year but Kerber was still solid enough to get over the line. The problem for Hsieh is that Kerber has the strengths to expose the weaknesses in the Hsieh game, Kerber’s consistent power and outstanding movement are the perfect weapons to counter the Hsieh versatility. Even if Hsieh is at her best, Kerber should still be too good. If Kerber wants this enough, she will be too strong, I expect that she does want it enough.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to defeat Su-Wei Hsieh in 2 sets
