Katarzyna Kawa: Came in as a heavy underdog
Kawa ented the first round of the tournament after making it through the three Qualifying rounds but that wasn’t a surprise since she entered as the 91-ranked player. She squared off against Rebecca Marino in the first round who entered the tournament as the 104-ranked player but didn’t have to go through the Qualifiers to go for the first round. The game looked evenly placed and went to three sets.
Kawa took the first set 6:4 but then Rebecca made a comeback by winning the second set 6:3. In the final set, the score was the closest as Kawa won 7:5. Kawa won 68% of her games on the first serve but committed a whopping seven double faults which won’t cut it against quality players. She had 3 Aces while she had a 43:50 disadvantage on the receiving points. She won the 65:58 advantage on the service points.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Ons Jabeur: Big goals
There is no doubt that Tunisian Ons is one of the favorites to win it all when it comes to women's tennis players. She has been the third-seeded player to enter the tournament and has been one of the winningest players in the WTA circuit for a long time now. She will be expected to at least end up in the Semis but we know well by now that WTA is a highly unpredictable environment.
Her 6:1, 6:3 win in the first round versus Mirjam Bjorklund was as stellar as it gets. She committed no double faults. She nailed 2 Aces whereas Mrijan committed three double faults and had zero Aces. Her win% on the first serve was an incredible 81 while her win% on the second serve was an incredible 86. She won four out of seven break points. She had a 24:7 receiving points and 33:25 service points advantage.
Who will win the match between Katarzyna Kawa and Ons Jabeur?
Since Grand Slams start from the packed first round and the seeded players have to play in the initial rounds, we see a lot of breezy wins from top-ranked players. This is what Ons did in the previous game and it will not be a surprise if she gets to do it again versus Katarzyna Kawa. At this point, Ons is too good to lose to a player outside of the top 50 and her composure is incredible. I believe Katarzyna will be lucky to even force the third set here, which I don’t see happening.
As per bookmakers at 22bet, unsurprisingly, Kawa stands no chance and enters with the odds of 15! Ons has the odds of 1.016 in her favor.
Can Kawa force a three-set game? Will Jabeur even lose more than three games during a single set? Will this be even close? I don’t think Jabeur will have many problems fending off Kawa and can end up winning as she did in the first round. I think the total will fall under 18.5(Below 19 games) which has the odds of 2.22 as per 22bet.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
