TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Ashleigh Barty (1) meets Katerina Siniakova in the Round of 32 on Saturday, July 3rd 2021.
Will Katerina Siniakova cause the huge upset here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as she aims to make a bigger name for herself? Will Ashleigh Barty continue improving on her performances on grass this season? This can be a very interesting match as Siniakova does not give up easily, but only one will make their way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Katerina Siniakova came back from a set down against Vendeweghe in the Round of 64, beating the American in 3 sets 4-6/6-2/6-2. Katerina Siniakova did not start the mathc off strongly but when she was pushed against the wall, she was able to maintain her composure and pull off the comeback. Siniakova will be happy that she came through that match but she will also know that she cannot afford to let herself lose the first set so easily and then have to fight back. Now that she meets Ashleigh Barty in the Round of 32, if she does not start well she will have a much tougher time to comeback.
Ashleigh Barty improved on her first match here by beating Anna Blinkova in the Round of 64 in straight sets 6-4/6-3. Ashleigh Barty will now that she still has to get a couple more good wins under her belt to feel at her best, but she is definitely on her way. Ashleigh Barty is definitely the favourite for the 2021 Wimbledon Championships title as her game works well on this surface with her heavy reliance on slicing. Ashleigh will know she is the favourite but that she still has to be at her best as she meets the likes of Katerina Siniakova who will give her a tough battle.
Ashleigh Barty and Katerina Siniakova have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Katerina Siniakova can definitely put some pressure in Barty in this match as when she is at her best she is tough to beat. However, the fact that she did not come out ready to fight from the get go in her Round of 64 match does not give me much confidence in her causing an upset. Ashleigh Barty will come out here and use her slice to perfection to get her opponents hitting very low bouncing balls and not getting the accuracy they want on return. It will be tight, but Ashleigh Barty will make her way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
