WTA Rio Olympics, Semi Final: Kvitova v Puig (16:00)

This will be the first time they have played.

Kvitova loves playing for her country. She will like her chances of taking gold.  She has dropped just 1 set so far which was to Makarova. She didn’t face break points against Svitolina or Babos.

Puig is having a great tournament. She has been broken just once in each round.  Her best result at the slams was a 4th round at Wimbledon in 2013. This is the biggest match of her career and it will be interesting to see how she handles it. I tipped her to have a great season in 2016 and so far she hasn’t let me down.

Kvitova has more big match experience. They are playing for a guaranteed medal. This should be a great match and it won’t be a huge shock if Puig wins given how well she has played so far. I think she could take a set if she can handle to occasion but for her to win Kvitova will have to be below her best.

Back Kvitova if she gets broken first
