TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Belinda Bencic (9) meets Kaja Juvan in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Kaja Juvan cause the upset early on here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships and make a bigger name for herself? Will Belinda Bencic continue to impress on grass as she has done over the last 2 weeks? Both players will make this into an entertaining encounter, but only one will make their way to the Round of 64 at the All England Club. Who will it be?
Kaja Juvan did not have a good grass court start, losing in qualifying of the Berlin Open against Asia Muhammad. Kaja Juvan should not be losing these sorts of matches and it does not give her nor myself the confidence in her game coming into the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Kaja Juvan can put on solid performances on her day, but if she is not at her best, she will struggle a lot on grass, especially against someone who likes these conditions such as her Round of 128 opponent, Belinda Bencic.
Belinda Bencic has gone 5-2 in her matches on grass this season, putting on some strong performances in Berlin where she was able to make her way to the Final. Belinda Bencic is a great player on her day, and we all want to see her perform at the highest level which we know she can play at. If Belinda can begin her 2021 Wimbledon Championships campaign off strongly through some solid wins and no time wasted, her confidence, momentum, and consistency should be able to benefit for the future. Belinda meets Kaja Juvan and she will be confident in her game here.
Belinda Bencic and Kaja Juvan have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Kaja Juvan could have been a threat, but her poor performance in qualifying of Berlin have not given me any confidence in her game. Belinda Bencic, on the other hand, has been on top of her game and getting back to her best. I expect for her to come out here and show us the Bencic of old, get an easy win under her belt, and make her way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
