Petra Kvitova vs. Angelique Kerber, Stuttgart R1 Prediction

Porsche Tennis GP, Stuttgart R1 Prediction
?? (8) Petra Kvitova vs. ?? Angelique Kerber

I’m going to give the benefit of the doubt to Kerber. Angie will be bitterly disappointed by her performances on the weekend as she was unable to help Germany to the Fed Cup final. This is a very unique match as it is extremely rare to play the same opponent twice in the same week. That is the scenario heading into this match after Kvitova’s 6-2 6-2 win over Kerber on Saturday.

It would be understandable if Kvitova is a bit flat heading into this match given her success in guiding the Czech team to the Fed Cup final. Conversely, Kerber will be fired up and wanting revenge in front of her home crowd. Kerber is likely to produce a solid performance and I think she will be tough enough to get over the line here.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to defeat Petra Kvitova in 3 sets
