Taiwan Open, Taipei City QF Prediction
?? Monica Niculescu vs ?? Sabine Lisicki
I’d have to give the edge to Niculescu here. I think Niculescu is in good from, the Romanian was generally very solid against Zarina Diyas in the previous round and I was impressed with her ability to continually rebound from a break down in the deciding set. Lisicki has been very inconsistent throughout her first two matches and I don’t think she can produce the level required consistently enough to get past Niculescu. This early in Lisicki’s comeback, Niculescu looms as a nightmare match-up for the German because of her defensive skills and unorthodox game, expect a lot of errors from the Lisicki racquet.
