TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Coco Gauff takes on Francesca Jones in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will home favorite and world number 210 Francesca Jones be able to pull off a massive upset? Will Coco Gauff be able to carry the amazing momentum she has had this year and get a good start in the tournament? This match-up will be an interesting one, as a crowd favorite will attempt to take on one of the most in-form players on the tour. Who will move on to the Round of 64 at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships?
Francesa Jones is a very new player to the WTA Tour, being the lowest ranked player in the draw, and only 20 years old. To pull this off, she would have to play better tennis than she could imagine. She’s done 3 tournaments on the grass prior to Wimbledon, losing in the first round at all 3 of them. In fact, she only has 2 match wins on the main tour this year, really showing how tough of a task it is for her to defeat Coco Gauff. She will have to play absolutely lights out tennis to move on to the Round of 64 at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
Coco Gauff should be coming into the 2021 Wimbledon Champion with loads of confidence, with great results on the WTA Tour this year, there’s no doubt that she has plenty of potential to make a great run at the tournament this year. With several matches under her belt at the Eastbourne Open one week earlier, I expect her to get a quick and easy win over Francesa Jones and load herself with confidence and momentum going forward past the Round of 128.
Coco Gauff and Francesa Jones have played one time before, with Coco Gauff leading their head to head 1-0. Their only meeting took place 5 months earlier, with Coco Gauff getting a straightforward win at 6-1 6-4. This only further shows how much of a favorite Coco Gauff is to move on to the Round of 64 at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
