Alison Van Uytvanck will play Camila Giorgi in the semifinal of the 2018 WTA Linz Open.

Alison Van Uytvanck beat the number 3 seed, Barbora Strycova in the quarterfinals. It was a close match but Alison Van Uytvanck won the second and third set to secure the win. During that victory, Alison Van Uytvanck received serve exceptionally well as she won 3 breakpoints. Furthermore, Alison Van Uytvanck won close to 40% of the points played during Strycova’s service games. This tournament marked a change in form for Alison Van Uytvanck as she had not won a single match since the end of the Rogers Cup which was over 2 months ago. While Alison Van Uytvanck has gotten wins in this tournament, she still is not playing her best tennis and that will make things hard for her in this match.

On the other side of the coin, Camila Giorgi has had a good tournament as she has only lost 1 set in the entire tournament. Giorgi is the number 5 seed for this tournament which is representative of her recent form as she did very well at the Pan Pacific Open. It was a convincing win for Camila Giorgi in the quarterfinal as she broke her opponents serve on 5 occasions to set up a comfortable victory. Giorgi has a great record at this tournament as she finished second in 2014. With form and conditions in her favor, I see Camila Giorgi playing well in this match.

Camila Giorgi and Alison Van Uytvanck have played two times in the past with Giorgi winning on both occasions. The most recent match was earlier this year with Camila Giorgi winning in straight sets.

All in all, I am picking Camila Giorgi to win this match. Giorgi is a more accomplished player and has been in better form. With a good record at Linz, I see Camila Giorgi making her second WTA Linz final.
