The grass fields of the WTA Nottingham Open are set and ready for the day. Fans at this event will have plenty of choice during the day with twelve singles matches scheduled throughout the venue, and as always, we here at LWOT will deliver our predictions for every match on the roster, including That’s Maria Sakkari, Camila Osorio, Viktorija Golubic and Emma Raducanu. But who will move on to the next round?

WTA Nottingham Day 2 Predictions

Sonai Kartal vs Camila Giorgi

face to face: first meeting

The young British wildcard is one to watch here. She stormed into the British ITF events in 2022 and won all four events she was in in Glasgow and Nottingham. Kartal also won the UK Pro League title in 2021, after Emma Raducano in winning that title. Georgi wouldn’t care whatsoever about this, of course. The Italian has a scary game that, in all likelihood, will take her away from Kartal. However, if she is a little out of the game, the Briton may be good enough to cash in on her. In this particular case, I will anticipate the shock and Kartal’s confidence will allow her to play well and win.

Zhang Shuai vs. Christina Buxa

face to face: Zhang 1-0 Boksa

Boksa is playing well enough to have an excellent chance here. She qualified and also played a couple of rounds at Surbiton, so she’s now called out on the turf. Zhang has a very decent grasscourt history and was already a finalist last year in Nottingham, but her recent history is a cause for concern. Just 3 wins in her last 10 matches might make her weak here, but Zhang’s class and experience should be enough to let her slip through the line.

Magdalena Fritsch vs. Yuriko Miyazaki

face to face: first meeting

The young Briton is finding her feet on the grass and will be looking forward to this match as a great opportunity to secure a rare win at the WTA Championships. Despite the much lower rank, there is very little difference in ability between the players as shown when Miyazaki beat players with a higher rank than her to reach the main draw. I’ll stay with the perfect player here and hope the Japanese make it to the next round.

Lauren Davis vs Caroline Garcia

face to face: Davis 1-1 Garcia

The last time Garcia visited this tournament, she was the champ, but that was in 2019. Garcia’s career has gone in a completely different direction since then, although Garcia is undoubtedly in better spirits after winning the doubles title at the French Championships. Open last weekend. Davis has always been a tough contender and has had her moments on the grass as well, so it’s an especially tough match. Garcia hasn’t won enough matches lately, but she may only be able to gain confidence from last week and get one on the board here.

Prediction: Garcia at 3
