The Line: -- Over/Under:
Ashleigh Barty and Harriet Dart meet in the third round of the 2019 tennis Wimbledon.
Ashleigh Barty is coming off a straight sets win over Alison Van Uytvanck that took 16 games to decide. In the victory, Barty won 79 percent of her first serve points and 58 percent of her second serve points. Barty won 70 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her seven break points. Barty got 56 percent of her first serves in play, faced just one break point and had just seven unforced errors. Barty has won each of her last 18 sets and is going to be a nightmare to play as long as those unforced error totals remain at single digits. Barty looks to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the fourth straight time. Barty has won nine of her last 10 matches on grass court.
Harriet Dart is coming off a three sets win over Beatriz Haddad Maia that took 29 games to decide. In the victory, Dart won 62 percent of her first serve points and 55 percent of her second serve points. Dart won 59 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her 12 break points. Dart got 66 percent of her first serves in play, saved four of her eight break points and hit eight aces. Dart will have to clean up the 34 unforced errors she hit, but making it to the third round of a grand slam is already a success for the 22-year-old from London. Dart looks to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time in her career while beating her first top-10 player. Dart has split her last six matches on grass court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
Dart will have the cold behind her and has a chance to hang around if she can keep piling up aces. The problem is Barty is too locked in to be tripped up by somebody who lacks experience on the big stage and came into this tournament losing seven of her last nine matches. This tournament was a success for Dart, but Barty keeps her string of straight set victories intact.
