Toronto day 4: One match too many for Samantha


Match focus:
Petra Kvitova vs. Samantha Stosur

Samantha Stosur lost a set to unknown Glushko and it seems that the amount of matches have caught up on her. She will face the hard hitting Kvitova, whose forehand will smack Stosur's kick serves for winners. Stosur has the game to trouble Petra, but she's too tired now to do that.

Pick: Kvitova in 2 sets

Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Sloane Stephens

Sloane Stephens had a habit of only performing well in the big events. The question is whether Toronto is big enough for her. Radwanska's game s well suited for players who don't do point construction, like Sloane Stephens. The American will have to hope Radwanska is tired from the many matches she had played, or it will be a straightforward affair for the Pole.

Pick: Radwanska in 2 sets

Alize Cornet vs. Sara Errani

Cornet seems to be hitting a nice form here and in recent weeks, reaching the semi-finals last week, and upsetting Kirilenko. Will she be able to cause another upset? Let's face it, other than the virtual bye that is Wozniacki, Errani is the other top 10 player that is most prone to upsets. A player having an inspired day can take out the Italian easily. However, Cornet doesn't have the firepower to overcome the crafty Sara. It might be close, but the Italian will have the last laugh.

Pick: Errani in 3 sets

Sure win bets: Serena Williams, Roberta Vinci, Agnieszka Radwanska
Upset alert: Li Na, Jelena Jankovic, Marion Bartoli
