Peng vs Knapp by Tennisguy

This is a 3d round qualif. match from the New Haven WTA tournament between Shuai Peng from China and Karin Knapp from Italy.


Peng is ranked 40 and Knapp 74. They have met only once in a match that took place in 2008 in Indian Wells(hard court) which Peng won 6-1, 6-3.


Peng has a record of 16-9 on hard this year compared to Knapp who is 11-11.


In her previous 2 qualif. matches here Peng deafeated Schmiedlova 6-2, 6-2 and Konta 6-2, 6-1. She looks in solid shape and I think she is going to do well in this tournament. She had a week of rest as she didn't play in Cincinnati last week so I think she is going to perform at her maximum level today.


Knapp in her previous qualif. matches managed to defeat Katarzyna Piter 6-2, 6-0 and Polona Hercog 6-2, 6-1. She managed some good wins but both those players she played against where completely of of form so to me it doesn't say a lot. Knapp did manage some good wins last week in Cincinnati but I don't see her repeating that performance. She is definitely one of the more inconsistent player on the tour and against a solid player like Peng she struggle a lot.


I think Peng is the better player here and the odds are quite good for her to win so I am picking her to do that. pin
