The Line: -- Over/Under:
Brazilian tennis player, Beatriz Haddad Maia has made it into the second round at Wimbledon. Maia will play against Harriet Dart in the second round.
Harriet Dart had a big win in the previous round as she defeated Christina McHale in 3 sets. It was a courageous win for Dart as she lost the opening set but fought back extremely well to get the outright victory. During the victory, Harriet Dart received serve exceptionally well. Dart won 57% of her return points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 6 occasions. While the returning was good, Dart had issues with her serve as she conceded 5 service games. With the competition getting tougher, Dart must improve her serve.
It had not been a good few weeks for Harriet Dart as she failed at her last 3 tournaments. Since the start of the Nottingham Open, Harriet Dart has only won 2 matches including her win against McHale.
On the other side of the court, Beatriz Haddad Maia had a big win in the previous round as she defeated Garbine Muguruza in straight sets. During the win, Maia served very well. Beatriz Haddad Maia hit 7 aces which aided her to win over 60% of her service points. Beatriz Haddad Maia won 90% of her service games and 3 return games during the victory.
Beatriz Haddad Maia entered this tournament via the qualifiers. Following a win against Muguruza, Beatriz Haddad Maia should be confident.
This will be the first time that Beatriz Haddad Maia and Harriet Dart will be playing each other at a WTA event.
This is a tough match to predict since neither player would have expected to make it this far in the tournament. That being said, I am picking Harriet Dart to win this match. Dart played well in the opening round and she seems to be playing well in her home soil. Dart has the support of the crowd and I see that being massive for her. Both players are playing well but I see Dart getting the victory.
