26-year-old Elise got a big win in the Third Round as she took care of business against Angelique Kerber. Kerber isn’t an easy match-up on grass so that is why it wasn’t an easy win for the Belgian. Elise got the first 6-4 and then in the second set, both players went back and forth but Elise pulled through in the end. In that game, Elise had a stellar 68% first serve and won 69% of first serve and 69% of the second serve. She won 21 receiving points compared to 19 while winning 34-28 service points.

Mertens has now engaged in three tense battles. Her Second Round win against Panna Udvardy went to three sets, which involved a tiebreaker, and the last set went to 12 games. Against Camilio Osorio in the first round too, the game went to three sets as well. Mertens has been seeded at 24 and she has followed this Grand Slam well from the Fourth Round appearance in French Open. Can she make it to the Quarterfinals?

Ons Jabeur has not given any chance to her opposition so far. She has rather looked better than ever and that is after she has had a great time since last year. Ons has become one of the hardest players to beat. Her wins against Diane Parry, Katarzyna Kawa, and Miriam Bjorklund, have all come in two sets, she is yet to commit a double fault and she hasn’t allowed a player to take more than four games against her. It is clear she is in great rhythm.

She has broken the opponent’s serve time and time again, and her versatile skillset has only grown it seems. For all the laurels she has earned, she has never made it past the Quarter-Finals of any Grand Slam. She reached the Quarterfinals of the last Wimbledon but she is a much better player compared to that time. There is no doubt that Ons is the player to beat in this tournament alongside Iga Swiatek.

Context

Ons has been called the second-best player on the grass in the women’s circuit at the moment. She has adjusted to the pace of the court and she is looking ominous with each game. Three wins in six straight sets surely signify. Elise has had to fight more grueling battles but to be honest, her draw was also tougher than Ons from the get-go. Elise will take the confidence of the last win she had against Ons, the only time these two have met during last year’s US Open.

Win/Loss Betting

Despite the 0-1 deficit head-to-head, bookmakers at 1xbet are backing Ons’ grass-court prowess and have given her odds of 1.23 to nab a win. Mertens has been given the odds of 4.66.

Total Games

Ons has finished matters quickly in the first three games but she now faces most probably her toughest match-up, considering this is someone who defeated her in the US Open 2021. This can be a long-drawn battle and the total can fall “over” 19.5 which has the odds of 1.82.
