Jennifer Brady (22) meets Kaja Juvan in the third round of the 2021 Australian Open on Saturday, February 13th 2021.
Will Brady continue to dominate her way through her matches here at the Australian Open, or will the qualifier Kaja Juvan be able to cause the upset against the tough American?
Kaja Juvan has played a lot of tennis here in Australia in the last few weeks, and has been able not only to qualify for this tournament, but make her way to the third round of the Australian Open. Juvan of course had a quite easy first few matches on her side of the draw, and has not played a very tough opponent. Juvan came through a very tight 3-set match against Sherif in the second round, beating the qualifier 3-6/7-6/6-3. Juvan knows that her time on the big stage is limited, and she is going to have to step up her level in this third round match, but this does not mean she cannot have some fun.
Jennifer Brady absolutely destroyed her fellow American Madison Brengle in straight sets in the second round, sending her packing 6-1/6-2. Brady was on top of that match from start to finish and she showed us why she is known as one of the toughest competitors in the women's game. Brady will want to maximise her earnings here and she will be quite happy with the fact that she is meeting a qualifier in the third round, which only but increases her chances of making the fourth round.
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and it is going to be an absolutely domination by the no.22 seed, and tough American, Jennifer Brady. Kaja Juvan struggled in all her matches here, and she is not on top of her game compared to Jennifer, who has been cruising through all of her matches. Juvan had a great run, coming through the qualifiers, and making the third round, but here time has come and Jennifer Brady is going to get this match done in straight sets on Saturday.
