New Haven SF: Giorgi continues to surprise

Magdalena Rybarikova vs. Camila Giorgi

The unpredictable Giorgi continues to defy the odds and advances to the semi-final with a hard fought win over Muguruza. Can she continue her good form and beat Rybarikova? Magdalena doesn't play a similar game with other players, incorporating a lot of slices, which will give Giorgi some trouble. I am also edging towards the Slovak as she beat a Riske in the quarters, who plays a same game as Giorgi. Nevertheless, you just don't know which Camila will show up. I do think when she's hitting well and winning matches, she's hard to stop.

Pick: Giorgi in 3 tight sets

Samantha Stosur vs. Petra Kvitova

With her tall frame and a lefty advantage, it's hard to see Petra losing this. Samantha's kick serves will bounce to the sweet spot of Kvitova's forehand, which she will not hesitate to put away. Besides, all Petra needs to concentrate on is to keep hitting crosscourt forehands to Sam's weaker backhand. If she executes her game, there's nothing much Sam can do in this bad match-up.

Pick: Kvitova in 2 sets
