TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Grigor Dimitrov (18) meets Fernando Verdasco in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Fernando Verdasco find some good form here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships after making his way back onto the main tour from injury and surgeries? Will Grigor Dimitrov get a solid win under his belt to give himself some confidence and consistency to get some form back in 2021? Both players can win this match if they are at their best, but only one will make their way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Fernando Verdasco is looking to find his form again after having a few knee injuries which has held him back from playing in many big tournaments over the last year. Fernando Verdasco, when fully fit and confident, is very hard to beat. Fernando is a lefty so he can always be competitive against opponents because he can get very nice angles on the court. Fernando will have to be much better than I believe he currently can be here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships because he meets the flamboyant Grigor Dimitrov early.
Grigor Dimitrov has not played any warm up tournaments before Wimbledon, meaning he will need to find his match rhythm on grass. Grigor is a very tough opponent when he is at his best, but he did not impress anyone on clay this year. Perhaps on grass Grigor can find some form and he will be glad he is not meeting an in form player right from the start, but rather a player aiming to find his level in Fernando Verdasco. How can Grigor come out in this match, will it be a slow start, or a dominant display?
Grigor Dimitrov and Fernando Verdasco have met 7 times before, with Grigor Dimitrov leading the head to head 4-3. They have always played extremely tight matches, with both players winning at least 1 set in all of their matches except for 1. If Fernando Verdasco was at his best I would expect him to win this one. However, he is not. Grigor is not a dominant opponent currently, but he should come through this match eventually to make his way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
