Yulia Putintseva is set to play against Viktorija Golubic in the second round at Wimbledon.
Viktorija Golubic had a solid win in the previous round as she won her match in straight sets. During the victory, Golubic received serve exceptionally well. Viktorija Golubic won 54% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 6 occasions. Viktorija Golubic was exceptional at converting break points as she had a 100% conversion rate. The serving was not good from Golubic as she only won 60% of her service games. It has been an average start to Viktorija Golubic’s grass court season as she has 50% of her grass court matches in 2019.
This is expected to be a tough match for Viktorija Golubic as she is playing against a quality opponent.
Looking at Yulia Putintseva, she had a big win in the previous round as she defeated Naomi Osaka in straight sets. Putintseva played a very good match as she exploited Osaka’s struggling backhand exceptionally well. Yulia Putintseva won the opening set via a tiebreaker but dominated the second set win it 6-2.

Viktorija Golubic had a good match in the opening round but she has not been in great form having only won 50% of her matches on grass in 2019. Looking at Yulia Putintseva, she has been playing outstanding tennis having beaten Osaka twice over the past few weeks. Yulia Putintseva looks confident and her awareness of match situations has been exceptional. Yulia Putintseva was outstanding in the opening round and I see her being too strong for Viktorija Golubic in this match.
