Taiwan Open, Taipei City, SF Prediction
?? Sabine Lisicki vs ?? Kateryna Kozlova
I’m going to give the edge to Kozlova here. Whilst Lisicki has done well to come through a couple of tough matches, I don’t think she can get away with such an inconsistent performance against Kozlova. The main problem for Lisicki is that her serve is not at all firing, her first serve percentage has been very low and double faults are an issue. Conversely, Kozlova is serving well, particularly in her match with Putintseva yesterday. I think Kozlova is the steadier, more reliable of the pair and will be too good for Lisicki.
