The Ricoh Open female tournament is a popular event on the WTA calendar. It will be played from Monday 6th of June through to Sunday, 12th of June 2016 in Rosmalen, Netherlands.
This will be the 27th edition of this series, and its list of previous winners has notable names like Kim Clijsters, Nadia Petrova and Justine Henin. Italian Camila Giorgi won the 2015 edition beating Belinda Bencic in straight sets. The top seeds in the female category are; Switzerland Belinda Bencic, Serbian Jelena Jankovic, French Kristina Mladenovic , Latvian Jelena Ostapenko and German Laura Siegemund. My prediction for the quarter finals are as follows; Belinda Bencic vs Anna Lena Friedsam, Kristina Mladenovic vs Aleksandra Krunic, Madison Brengle vs Jelena Ostapenko, and Coco Vandewenge vs Jelena Jankovic. I'm tipping Belinda Bencic to win her quarter final tie and set up a semifinal date with Kristina Mladenovic. I'm also backing Jelena Ostapenko to get past Madison Brengle and set up a tie with the experienced Jelena Jankovic.
My picks for the final are Belinda Bencic and Jelena Jankovic. I see the former world number 1 winning the final and securing her 16th WTA title.
