Share & Comment

 Agnieszka Radwanska

 

Top seeded Agnieszka Radwanska will begin her campaign in Stuttgart with a second round match-up against Italy’s Roberta Vinci. This marks the seventh time these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Radwanska leading the series 5-1. This will be their fourth encounter on clay. Check out the Radwanska vs Vinci Head to Head matches.

World No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska has had a strong season so far in 2014, having reached the semi-final at the Australian Open and the final at Indian Wells, which boosted her ranking to its current high. While she is coming off a disappointing loss to Alize Cornet in the Katowice semi-final, she rebounded with a strong 2-0 weekend for her Fed Cup team, and will be looking to rebound with a strong showing in Stuttgart. Radwanska is not defending l points at this event, as did not take part in it last year. She did however reach the final four in both 2011-12, losing to Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka respectively.

World No. 20 Roberta Vinci began her week in Stuttgart with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over local talent Annika Beck. It was a much needed win for the Italian, who had lost 4 of her last 5 matches before this week, including a Fed Cup loss to Petra Kvitova last week. She will be looking to pick up her first Top 5 victory of the season when she meets the Polish No. 1 tomorrow afternoon.

This marks the seventh time these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Radwanska leading the series 5-1. This will be their fourth encounter on clay, with Radwanska holding a perfect 3-0 record on that surface. Their last clay court meeting took place at the Madrid Masters and ended 7-6(1) 6-4 for the top seed. Expect a similar result this time around.

Prediction: Agnieszka Radwanska in Straight Sets

  1. Karim, I appreciate your work, but why you always choose to preview the easiest matches?? You don’t have to be a genius to predict that Radwanska or Nadal will win. I would like to see matches harder to predict. Thank you

      I understand your concern, but we chose to preview the top seeds usually and that does not lead to the most competitive previews in the early rounds.

      Thank you for the feedback
