BNP Paribas Open, ??? Indian Wells QF Prediction
?? (8) Venus Williams vs. ?? (27) Carla Suarez Navarro
I’m going to give the slight edge to Suarez Navarro here. I think the surface in Indian Wells favours Carla in this match-up. Many players have commented on how slow the courts are this week and have noted that they are very high bouncing and favour those who like to play on clay. Suarez Navarro is will be very tough to get past in these conditions and I’m still not quite convinced by the level Venus is playing at. Whilst Venus has gotten through a few tough matches, she mainly benefited from unforced errors from her opponents and has not been tested in a lengthy match. Suarez Navarro is playing well enough to push this to a third set where she can outlast the American.
