US Open 2021: Ashleigh Barty vs. Vera Zvonareva Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 US Open as Ashleigh Barty takes on Vera Zvonareva in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, August 31st, 2021.

Will Vera Zvonareva kick off her US Open campaign with a huge upset win against the title favourite? Will Ashleigh Barty start off strongly here at the 2021 US Open as she aims to win her 3rd Grand Slam title and 2nd Grand Slam of the year? Both players are strong and will come out here and give it their all, but only one will make their way to the Round of 64 of the 2021 US Open. Who will it be?

Vera Zvonareva had to withdraw from her second match at the Cleveland Championships last week due to an injury and she will have been focusing on recovering enough to give it a good go here at the 2021 US Open. Vera is not really known on the main WTA Tour, mainly focusing her efforts nowadays on doubles where she can actually compete. Vera will come out here ready to give it her all because anything less than that will be absolutely destroyed by the very in form and determined to continue succeeding Ashleigh Barty.

Ashleigh Barty has been in super form recently, winning Wimbledon in July and then coming back a couple weeks ago at the Cincinnati Open where she destroyed all opponents in front of her as she won the title there as well. Ashleigh is so versatile and can adapt to all conditions, allowing her to compete and challenge for titles in every tournament she plays in. At the moment Ashleigh just looks like she is on another level to anyone else on the WTA Tour and she will want to bring the momentum gained by winning the Cincinnati Open to give herself a strong win against Vera Zvonareva as she begins her 2021 US Open campaign.

Ashleigh Barty and Vera Zvonareva have never met before, with this being their first ever career meeting. Ashleigh Barty has been in great form this year, winning 40 matches this year and losing 7, whilst Vera has won 22 and lost 13. Vera does not compete much in the later stages of tournaments, always making the first or second round, and this is due to her not being at her peak anymore. At her peak, Vera was one of the best on the tour, reaching No.2 in the world, but I think the stamina, slice, and adaptability to different playing styles from Ashleigh Barty will be too much for Vera Zvonareva here at the 2021 US Open.
