WTA – SINGLES: Wimbledon (United Kingdom), grass – Semi-finals
Barty and Kerber are finely poised at 2-2 in their head-to-head record but have only faced each other on hard courts. The pair know each other’s game well and aesthetically this match should be an enthralling watch between Barty’s cool, precise offence and Kerber’s brick-wall defence.
Barty has not lost a set in her last 4 matches, and Kerber has also won 3 of her 5 matches by 2-0. We expect a tight match-up with at least one tie-break, and possibly even a third set.
