Sydney International. R1 Prediction
?? Mirjana Lucic-Baroni vs ?? Petra Kvitova
I’d give the edge to Kvitova here. Both have aggressive games, but Kvitova has more control and has more to her game. Both will be rusty at this early stage of the season, so expect there to be some big momentum shifts in this one. Kvitova ended 2017 in strong form and will be aiming for a big 2018 after a strong off-season. I expect Kvitova to eventually show that she is a class above Lucic-Baroni.
