Wimbledon has already showcased some great battles and the first one that comes to mind is the nail-biting Harmony Tan win versus Serena Williams. There has been some drama as well and (surprise, surprise!) Nick Kyrgios had a heated moment. That is all the part of the game. Anyway, now we are heading into the second-round game, where Iga Swiatek will take on Lesley Kerkhove on 30 June. Iga had a straight-forward win against Jana Fett, winning 6-0, 6-3. On the other hand, Lesley Kerkhove comes into this game after beating Sonay Kartal 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Will Lesley even stand a chance here?

Iga Swiatek jumps to use her strong forehand

In her first-round match-up, Iga’s sheer presence caused Jana Fett to make a ton of errors. Iga’s strong forehand made life hell for Fett whereas she made it more difficult for herself by committing nine double faults. That is the impact Iga has had on her opponents, who have been top-ranked throughout the year. Swiatek’s backhand was in full flow too during the game and she ended up posing a 57% win percent on the second serve.

Swiatek has been known to get it done against lower-ranked players for around a year now. Another interesting aspect about this superb tennis player is that she continues to improve and it seems like she has the capability to hoard multiple Grand Slams under her belt. She is the number one seeded player and proved her incredible ranking first-up against Fett. Will Iga win another title here as well?

Lesley Kerkhove defeated Sonay Kartal in a riveting three sets affair. She took the first 6:4 and she looked in great touch while doing whereas she lost the second set 3:6, putting the pressure back on her. Her third set performance was amazing as she won 6:1 and she controlled the game well. She had a 61% win on first serve, winning 47 service points compared to 37 by Kartal.

Lesley entered the tournament as a Qualifier. The 30-year-old defeated Lea Boskovic in two sets to win the first qualifier, then she defeated Andrea Garcia in a grueling three sets affair, finally beating Christina McHale in two sets to qualify. She has grinded her way through the ITF circuit and it has taken her a long time to reach the WTA rank of 135 which implies the difficulty at the WTA level for women.

Context

Iga has established herself as one of the best women athletes of all time. Her backhand and forehand speeds are amazing to deal with and on grass, where things are quick, they are especially in full service. Iga defeated Jana quite easily in the first game so when she faces off against Lesley, I doubt she will have many blushes. Yeah, you never know how it turns out in sports but it is difficult to picture Iga losing here unless there is an injury causing a walkout.

Win/Loss Betting

Lesley has been given the almost insurmountable odds of 9.7 to win whereas Iga has been given the odds of 1.01. Basically, the bookmakers at 22bet predict a lopsided win for Iga.

Total Games

Usually, such scenarios can mean short games and Iga can get it done early, most probably winning in two sets. But I still see the total going “over” 16.5 which has the odds of 2.3 as per 22bet
