Well, from a betting point of view, Kiki Bertens is a genuine nighmare.

Kvitova ~ Šafářová ~ Garcia ~ Madison Keys

Cetkovská ~ Hradecká ~ Siniaková ~ Gavrilova ~ Bencic ~ Allertova ~ Smitkova ~ Makarova ~ Chakvetadze ~ Laura Robson ~ Pliskova twins

Why? Have you seen Olga play?

Probably, now, one of the best returners on the tour.

Surely you meant to say "on the ITF circuit" ...

Puchkova was the fave in my opinion I'm not saying Kiki is bad, but she still has to prove she's not a fluke. Puchkova's played WTA finals against Davenport and Bartoli while Kiki played Pous Tio in hers

Also their playing style can be quite similar, plus Olga called Anna her role model so I always associate Olga with Anna
