The 2018 WTA Kremlin Cup is a women’s professional tennis tournament played on the WTA Tour and if you are looking for the latest WTA Kremlin Cup tips, predictions and odds, you have come to the right place.
The event, which is conducted in Moscow, will start on October 15 with the final match taking place on October 21. As a Premier tier tournament, it will feature some of the strongest players on the circuit, making it an exciting affair to follow. In this article, we will give you the 2018 WTA Kremlin Cup latest tips & predictions.
The playing field for this year’s edition of the Kremlin Cup is the strongest in the tournaments’ history. Leading the draw is the World No. 1 Simona Halep who, as of US Open, has a win-loss record of 46-9.
She has won three titles already, including the prestigious French Open. She was also the runner-up on numerous occasions like the Cincinnati Open and Italian Open.
It’s interesting to note she might have taken up the wild-card for this event in a bid to finish at the top of the WTA Rankings this year-end.
2019 WTA Kremlin Cup Tips:
In addition to Halep, the tournament was also going to feature the former World No. 1 and the local favourite Maria Sharapova but she has now withdrawn from the competition. Halep’s request to feature at the Kremlin Cup should somewhat make up for her loss though.
Halep will be accompanied by her compatriot and last year’s runner-up Daria Kasatkina.
Another top 10 player who is set to make an impression in Moscow is the Czech Karolina Pliskova. She is sailing high on confidence, having just won the WTA Tokyo. That was her second title of the season with the first one being the WTA Stuttgart and our WTA Kremlin Cup tips have her as one to watch out for this tournament.
Similarly, we will also see the World No. 11 Kiki Bertens – the 26-year-old Dutch who reached her career-high singles ranking this year. She has made it to the quarterfinals and beyond in four of her last five tournaments; in two of those events in Seoul and Cincinnati, she moved on to win the title.
She is among the strongest players here and poses a definite threat to the others.
Other participants in the WTA Kremlin Cup 2018 are Kaia Kanepi, Kristina Mladenovic, Aryna Sabalenka, Elise Mertens, Anastasija Sevastova, Barbora Strycova, and many more.
