TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Ashleigh Barty (1) meets Barbora Krejcikova (14) in the Round of 16 on Monday, July 5th 2021.
Will Barbora Krejcikova continue her amazing run after having won 10 matches in a row at Grand Slams currently? Will Ashleigh Barty use her amazing grass court game to get herself into the Quarter-finals and get one step closer to the title? Both players will be giving it their all here to get the win, but only one will make their way to the Quarter-finals of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Barbora Krejcikova had to fight right until the end in her match against Anastasija Sevastova, beating her in 3 sets 7-6/3-6/7-5. This was Barbora’s tightest match of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships so far, and just as she did at the French Open last month, she showed great composure during the important moments to get the needed win under her belt. Barbora has now won 10 matches in a row in her last two Grand Slams and she will want to make it 11 matches in a row to take out her biggest competition in the tournament, Ashleigh Barty.
Ashleigh Barty cruised through her Round of 32 match against Katerina Siniakova, beating the Czech in straight sets 6-3/7-5. Ashleigh was on top of that match from start to finish and she did not let herself give up anything easily because she knew that if she started taking it passively, she would have to fight even harder. Ashleigh has improved so much over the last week and she is very much the favourite for the title. Now that she meets the latest Grand Slam champion in Barbora Krejcikova in what is going to be a very tough encounter at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
Ashleigh Barty and Barbora Krejcikova have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. They have both won 1 Grand Slam title each, with Barty winning the French Open in 2019 and Barbora winning it in 2021. This is definitely going to be a tight encounter here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, with both players giving it their all as they know that whoever wins it, will most likely be the favourite for the title. Although Barbora is on a winning streak, I don’t see her beating an in form Ashleigh Barty on grass. Barty has a superb slice which helps on this surface so she can neutralise the power of Barbora and then counter punch. It will be tight, but Ashleigh will make her way to the Quarter-finals of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
