Tennis Picks 2014 (September 19th)

A very strong week continued on Thursday with two more winning picks and this week has made up for some of the disappointments faced in the summer. It isn't the time to get complacent though with three more days to complete this week for it to be a very strong one for the picks as we hit the Quarter Final stage for the majority of the tournaments being played this week.

Jan-Lennard Struff + 3.5 games v Philipp Kohlschreiber: These two compatriots met on the clay courts of Stuttgart earlier this season when Philipp Kohlschreiber proved too good for Jan-Lennard Struff in a straight sets win.

While that was a pretty easy match for Kohlschreiber on the scoreboard, I expect the indoor hard courts to give Struff a much better chance to reverse that match result.

That isn't to say I am convinced he can win this match, but I certainly think Struff is capable of taking a set off of Kohlschreiber which will give him every chance of staying within this number.

There have been times when I have been very impressed with Kohlschreiber, but I do think his best way be behind him and I think Struff has the capability of being a decent indoor player. If this goes to three sets, Struff should have every chance to at least cover the games if he doesn't have enough to win the match.

Dominika Cibulkova + 3.5 games v Angelique Kerber: 2014 has seen a change in momentum of the head to head between these players as Angelique Kerber has won both matches to snap a four match losing run against Dominika Cibulkova.

It wouldn't surprise many people that matches between the players have been closely contested many times with both players having very strong defensive skills, but also not the biggest serves which means they have to earn everything they achieve on a court.

That is tough to do for consistent amount of times and can lead to long, three set matches when Kerber and Cibulkova get together and it may be the case on Friday in this Quarter Final.

I can understand why Kerber is the favourite- she has been in far better form since Wimbledon than Cibulkova, but I believe the 'pocket rocket' can at least push the German even in a defeat. The two wins that Cibulkova has had this week should inspire her and rebuilt her confidence to the extent of having another titanic battle with Kerber and I think she can stay within the games by taking one set in this match.
