American tennis superstar, Serena Williams has made it into the fourth round at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Serena will play against Carla Suarez Navarro from Spain.
Carla Suarez Navarro won her previous match in straight sets as she defeated Lauren Davis from the United States. During the win, Navarro received serve exceptionally well. Carla Suarez Navarro won 56% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 6 occasions. The serving was an area of concern for Carla Suarez Navarro as she lost 33% of her service games. With Serena as her opponent for this match, Navarro must improve her serve if she wishes to compete.
Looking at Serena Williams, the American looked very dominant in her last match. Serena defeated Julia Gorges in straight sets in the previous round. The serving was exceptionally strong from Serena Williams as she hit 7 aces which aided her to win 74% of her service points. Williams won all of her service games and 2 return games to secure a comfortable victory.
Serena Williams has looked in outstanding form in this tournament as the American seems to be hitting the ball very cleanly. Serena’s movement around the court has also been very impressive.
Serena Williams and Carla Suarez Navarro have played each other 6 times in the past. Serena has a 6-0 record against Carla Suarez Navarro. The most recent match between these two players was in 2015 at the Madrid Masters where Serena Williams won in straight sets. In the 6 matches, Carla Suarez Navarro is yet to win a set against Serena Williams.
Carla Suarez Navarro has done well to make it into the fourth round but I see the Spaniard losing this match. Serena Williams is playing very well and the American is very tough to beat on grass. Carla Suarez Navarro has a very poor record against Serena meaning that the American has all the momentum heading into this fixture. Serena Williams is a better player and I see her being too strong for Carla Suarez Navarro in this match.
