TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (16) meets Karolina Muchova (19) in the Round of 32 on Saturday, July 3rd 2021.
Will Karolina Muchova be able to get a very big win under her belt against an in form opponent who has had a lot of success recently? Will Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova continue to improve her game and get herself into the late stages of Grand Slams? Both players can win this match if they are on top of their game, but only one will make their way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Karolina Muchova came through a tight 3 set win against Camilla Giorgi in the Round of 64, beating the Italian 6-3/5-7/6-3. When Karolina Muchova was feeling her game she was absolutely fine in the match and she did not seem to have any issues. However, in the second set she just seemed to take a back foot as she expected to cruise. Giorgi did not let her do that, and Muchova then had to bring back her best level to win in 3 sets. Now that she enters the Round of 32, Muchova will need to ensure she does not let her guard down, especially as she meets the very in form Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is continuing to improve her game and finding the consistency which we had not seen from her over the last few years. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova beat Kristyna Pliskova in the Round of 64 in straight sets 6-3/6-3. Anastasia is so hard to beat at the moment because she now has the belief that she can make it really far into Grand Slams after her amazing run at the French Open. Anastasia is very experienced and now that she has the belief, she will not want to lose so early at a big tournament like the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, especially against a lower ranked opponent in Karolina Muchova.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Karolina Muchova have met 2 times before, with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova leading the head to head 2-0. They met earlier this year in Madrid where Pavlyuchenkova won in straight sets 7-6/7-6. Their matches have always been very tight, with both players always giving their best. However, Pavlyuchenkova has never lost to her and now that she is even better than in their prior encounters, I don’t see her losing this match. It will be tight just because all of their matches have been and they know each others game. But at the end of the day, Anastasia will win this match and make her way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
