Ashleigh Barty vs Angelique Kerber: Prediction and Betting Tips
Ashleigh Barty looking set for a maiden final in Wimbledon
Ashleigh Barty looks to be in top form after she took an 11-month break because of Covid. The Aussie returned to the tour this year and won three titles in Melbourne, Miami, and Stuttgart. After withdrawing from the French Open due to injury, Barty didn’t play in any grass-court tournament before Wimbledon but she looks in very good form.
The number one seed had a shaky start to the season’s third Grand Slam losing her only set so far in her first-round match against Suarez Navarro. In the next four matches, Barty cruised past all her opponents displaying very solid performances and controlling the matches from start to finish. It will be Barty’s toughest test playing Kerber, as she has a 2-3 record against the German.
Barty Key Stats
- Barty has played 21 games per match in Wimbledon
- The average number of aces per match by Barty is 7.6
- Barty had 4.2 double faults per match in Wimbledon
The former Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber is back in the semi-final after her win in 2018 and she will look forward to passing her toughest hurdle yet against Ashleigh Barty. Kerber is on an 11-1 win/loss record on grass this year as she prepared for Wimbledon by winning the Bad Homburg WTA title on grass.
Kerber improved her game as she progressed round after round. The world number 28 lost a set in each of her second and third-round matches. She faced tougher opposition in the fourth and fifth round playing Coco Gauff and Karolina Muchova who are both in great form. Kerber won both matches in straight sets and set up a thrilling semi-final clash against Barty.
Kerber Key Stats
- Kerber has played 22 games per match in Wimbledon
- The average number of winners by Kerber is 31.6
- 2.8 double faults per match is Kerber’s average in Wimbledon
Ashleigh Barty vs Angelique Kerber Prediction
Barty is the clear favorite to win this match with the bookmakers. The Australian is playing the most stable at the moment and her serve is the best in women’s tennis right now. If she keeps her serve percentage up where she has it in the tournament, she will win this match.
Kerber is known for her great defensive abilities and the capability to turn defense to offense on any point. If the German can read Barty’s serve and have a high returning percentage, she can be in with a chance to trouble the world number one.
Women’s tennis is known for its high number of double faults. If we look at both these players’ stats, they are averaging seven double faults between them per match in the tournament.
We predict Barty to win in three sets. For our second prediction, we are backing under 7.5 double faults.
