As the Wimbledon moves into the late stages, it is clear that we have a lot of brilliant action left in the tournament. We have had our brilliant moments from Serena Willimas losing to Harmony Tan in dramatic fashion, Nick Kyrgios howling and spitting, but this is just the start. As we move to the fourth day of the Second Round, Paula Badosa will take on Irina Bara on 30 June. Badosa had a signature win over Louisa Chirico, beating her 6-2, 6-1, and on the other hand, Romanian Irina Bara defeated Chloe Pacquet 6-2, 6-4. Will this be another cakewalk for Paula?

BBC keeps on being the main body to broadcast the Wimbledon Games for viewers in the UK. For the fans in the USA, ESPN and ESPN + will be the ones to showcase the Grand Slam. EuroSport as always is the broadcaster in European nations. If you are a tennis fan in the Indian subcontinent, Star Sports will host the game. For those who want the action online, Hotstar is a way for Indian subcontinent viewers whereas Fubo, Sling TV, and Hulu TV act as international streaming services.

Paula Badosa made her mark clear in the last game versus Louisa Chirico. She defeated Louisa Chirico quite easily with a scoreline of 6:2, 6:1. She had an incredible 70% win on the first serve and an even better 83% on the second serve. She ended up nabbing five out of seven breakpoints. She gathered 26 receiving points compared to 15 by Louisa. Paula grabbed 31 service points compared to 18 by Bara.

Badosa ented the Grand Slam with a fourth-seeded spot and she has been known as the type of player who can easily defeat the lower-ranked players. Despite her immense reputation, her returns have been rather slim recently. She got ousted in the first round during Eastbourne International. She was defeated in Third Round during French Open. and her last major deep run came in Indiana Wells Master where she was defeated in the Semis by Maria Sakkari.

Irina Bara comes into this game after defeating Chloe Paquet. She defeated Chloe 6:2 in the first set and then got an east 6:4 win in the second set. She committed just one double fault compared to four by Chloe. She had an incredible 82% win on first serve while commanding a 35-30 service points and 27-17 receiving points edge. At one point, she won seven games in a row which was the biggest difference-maker probably.

Bara made it to the First Round without having to go through the Qualifiers which is quite a success in itself. During the French Open, she had to undergo Qualifiers and was ousted in the first round by Putintseva. So, not having to go through Qualifiers and winning the first round is already a big achievement for the Romanian. This has been rather the best year for Irina who is ranked around 100.

Context

Badosa needs to capture momentum if she has to make a deep run. Irina has been strong this year but she will need more fine-tuning in her game against the aggressive baseliner in the form of Paula. Irina will look to at least take one set and who knows if she has something cooking here. It will be interesting to see how Paula approaches this but I think she can unlock something special on the grass where she has excelled historically.

Win/Loss Betting

Bara comes in with the handicap of 10.5 which is not a surprise because she is going up against the incredible Badosa. Badosa is the overwhelming favorite with the odds of 1.062 as per 1xBet.

Total Games

Will it be such a short game that we will see the result within an hour? Or will Irina push it to the third set? Has she got upset in two sets? I think Irina can stretch it out so I believe it will go “Over” 17.5 which has the odds of 1.82.
