Samantha Stosur vs Carina Witthoeft, Sydney R1 Prediction

Sydney International ??? R1 Prediction
(WC) ?? Samantha Stosur vs (LL) ?? Carina Witthoeft

I’m going to give the edge to Carina Witthoeft here. I think the German has the type of flat, strong and deep groundstrokes that can hurt Stosur on a quick hard court. As a lucky loser, Witthoeft enters this match with nothing to lose, she will be aggressive and put a lot of pressure on the Aussie. Stosur had a poor record on hard courts in 2017, ending the season with a negative record on the surface. Stosur’s troubles in Australia are well documented, in 2017 Stosur went through the Aussie summer without a win. I think Witthoeft will be good enough to keep Stosur’s troubles going.

Prediction: Carina Witthoeft to defeat Samantha Stosur in 3 sets
