TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Bianca Andreescu (5) meets Alize Cornet in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Alize Cornet continue to play strongly on grass as she has done over the last 2 weeks on the WTA Tour? Will Bianca Andreescu finally find some form after struggling a lot over the last year with injuries? This is going to be a very tight match, with both players coming out to bring their best, however, only one will make their way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Alize Cornet will be happy with her recent performances on grass, going 4-2 in her 6 matches in the last 2 weeks. Alize is a good player on her day and she can beat some big named players. Alize Cornet likes fast paces conditions where she can hit flat. She has been handed a tough side of the draw, but she will be confident in her game, especially as she now meets Bianca Andreescu who she had recently met a couple weeks ago and beat. Can Alize Cornet cause the upset again but on a much bigger stage at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships?
Bianca Andreescu is no longer in form like we remember her at the 2019 US Open, having gone 1-2 in her matches on grass this season. Bianca Andreescu is struggling a lot with injuries, which then lead to inconsistency, and then loss of confidence. It will be a tough road back for Bianca Andreescu to find her best tennis, but if she is determined to get back there, she needs to start here at Wimbledon because the longer she waits, the harder it gets as we all know. Can she get revenge for her loss to Alize Cornet just a couple weeks ago?
Bianca Andreescu and Alize Cornet have met 1 time before, with Alize Cornet leading the head to head 1-0. They met 2 weeks ago in Berlin where Alize won in 2 tight sets 7-6/7-5. Bianca Andreescu will be out for revenge here, and I think she might just edge it. However, if she begins the match by losing the first set, I don’t see her making the comeback. I think that she will win the first set, lose the second, and then come through a tight third. Bianca Andreescu needs this win badly to gain her confidence back and prove us that she is back at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
