Paula Badosa: Cruising on grass
Badosa has collected two easy wins thus far in the tournament. In the last game, Badosa defeated Irina Bara 6-3, 6-2 in what was an expected outcome. Badosa committed four double-faults but her strong service game knocked Bara out completely as she had an amazon 89% win on the first serve. But more so than that, it was Badosa’s great return game that helped her as she broke Bara’s serves, again and again, using her stellar backhand.
This has been an interesting tournament for Paula Badosa who defeated Louisa Chirico with a scoreline of 6-2, 6-1. In both the games, she has been incredible in breaking the serve. This is not surprising for Paula who is an amazing player on the grass. The trouble is that Paula’s returns during the big events have been rather slim this year. Will she be able to make it past the third round, which is potentially going to be her toughest?Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Petra Kvitova: A ton of experience in the tank
Petra Kvitova collected a big win against Ana Bogdan in the last round. Petra took the first set comfortably 6-1 but Bogdan made it difficult for Petra to run through the game in the second set, which went to a tiebreaker. The tiebreaker was hard-fought but ultimately Kvitova won 7:5. Kvitova had her serve broken repeatedly in the last game, getting outmatched 33-35 on receiving points but dominated the service game with a 54-34 advantage.
This second-round game was a lot like the first-round game, where Petra’s serve was broken many times. But she has pulled through because of her experience. Remember this is a woman who has won Wimbledon twice in her career and loves playing on the grass. She has been active in Grand Slams for about 15 years and has an incredible 119 wins and 50 losses record for her career in these big tournaments.
Who will win the match between Paula Badosa and Petra Kvitova?
Paula has been in incredible touch, she is able to break the serves and when her serve lands, the aggressive nature is too much to handle. Petra has had trouble with her service game and despite two wins, she isn’t looking in the full groove. Paula hasn’t been in her best touch this year but on the grass surface, she does like the pace when it comes easily on the racquet. Petra likes playing on the grass too so this makes the scenario only more interesting. This is a tough match-up to predict because Kvitova has looked in great touch during the tournament of grass despite some issues in the prior games. These two have met once before, which was in the Australian Open, where Petra won 7-5, 7-5.
Paula has been given a lower chance of winning by 1xbet with the odds of 2.27, which is not an insurmountable scenario but Petra enters as the favored candidate with the odds of 1.73 in this interesting scenario.
The last time these two met it was fairly a long game. Will that repeat? Yes, I do feel that is likely. I think this will be a close contest. That is why I believe the Games will be Over 22.5 which has the odds of 2.15 as per 1xbet.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
