Odds as of July 4
Coco Gauff vs Angelique Kerber
Usually talking, veteran gamers who’ve confronted Coco Gauff at Wimbledon have struggled considerably with the spectre of dropping to somebody so younger.
However in Kerber’s case (she’s 33; Gauff is 17), simply reaching the second week of the Championships given her detached kind in 2021 already has taken the stress off.
She is the one former champ remaining within the ladies’s draw.
The stress is on Gauff, who made it to Manic Monday in her highly-publicized Wimbledon debut in 2019 (she misplaced to Simona Halep in straight units) and to the quarterfinals on the French Open final month.
Gauff has solely performed 5 WTA-level matches in opposition to lefthanders. 4 have come within the final 5 months. Randomly, three have been in opposition to Swiss lefty Jill Teichmann.
She’s a reasonably pedestrian 3-2, and two of these wins have been struggles.
Coco Gauff vs Lefthanders
|Jil Teichmann||2021 Dubai (QF)||L 6-3, 6-3|
|Marketa Vondrousova||2021 Dubai (R32)||W 3-6, 6-0, 6-4|
|Jil Teichmann||2021 Australian Open (R128)||W 6-3, 6-2|
|Jil Teichmann||2021 Gippsland Trophy (R64)||W 6-3, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (5)|
|Martina Trevisan||2020 French Open (R64)||L 4-6, 6-2, 7-5|
None of these lefties come near the standard of Kerber when she’s on.
The German lefty will play voracious defence and power Gauff into going for greater than she would love. And she or he’ll put loads of stress on Gauff’s intermittently shaky second serve.
After six days of upsets and surprises, @Angelique_Kerber will line up within the final 16 on Monday as the one former champion left within the women’ singles draw…#Wimbledon

However for now, it’s all “a blast”, as she places it.
The world No. 338 hadn’t performed a single match from the beginning of the pandemic shutdown in March, 2020 – till she reappeared on the grass final month and made her WTA debut.
So what she has completed is already spectacular.
Raducanu confirmed few nerves in defeating the in-form Sorana Cirstea in straight units on Saturday, on the long-lasting No. 1 Court docket. She will get that court docket project on Manic Monday .
And in Tomljanovic, she faces a 28-year-old who had gone previous the second spherical solely as soon as in 23 earlier Grand Slam appearances – and by no means at Wimbledon.

O: what? so unhealthy so unhealthy. pic.twitter.com/UDIWdFB8RA

And the Aussie will even should cope with a crowd that, except for maybe her household, will likely be roaring for her opponent.

She wanted three units to get previous People Jessica Pegula (the No. 22 seed) and Sloane Stephens, a former Grand Slam champion.
Conversely, Pliskova hasn’t misplaced a set. And even when the previous No. 1’s greatest outcomes at Wimbledon have been the singles spherical of 16 the final two editions, she has different nice grass outcomes – particularly on the tuneup occasion in Eastbourne.
Like Kerber, Pliskova has had an detached 2021. However she will serve Samsonova off the court docket on a great day.
There’s no actual favourite on this match, with Pliskova at -108 and Samsonova at -120. And it ought to play out that method.
