TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Venus Williams takes on Mihaela Buzarnescu in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Venus Williams snap her losing streak and move on? Will Mihaela Buzarnescu suddenly find her form on the grass and take down the legend? This match promises to be one of interest where we will see where Venus Williams’ level is at. Who will move on to the Round of 64 at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships?
Venus Williams has been struggling on the tour lately, her record this year being 2-7. With no match practice on the grass, it will be tough. But grass is a different surface, and not a lot of players excel on the grass as they do on hard or clay. Venus Williams will have to try and rely on experience and being able to find her form at the right time, because Mihaela Buzarnescu also has quite a lot of experience, consistently being able to win matches at Wimbledon. It will be a tough ask for sure, but if she’s able to get through, it will have given her some confidence going forward.
Mihaela Buzarnescu is also an older player on the WTA Tour, and if she hopes to be able to take down Venus Williams, she will need to perform at a higher level than she has lately. There is no clear favorite between the two, as both have been struggling, but I think Mihaela Buzarnescu can absolutely get the job done relatively easily if she plays her best tennis. While I don’t necessarily expect her to be able to find it, it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Mihaela Buzarnescu and Venus Williams have met one time before, with Venus Williams leading the head to head 1-0. They met in the 2019 Australian Open with Williams taking it in a tight match. It will most likely not be a straightforward match by any means, and I suspect a battle will take place.
