Garbine Muguruza vs Ons Jabeur
July 2, 2021 8:30 am EDT
Garbine Muguruza (11) of Spain will face Tunisian Ons Jabeur (21) in the Third Round of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. The match is scheduled to be played on Friday July 2nd, 2021 at approximately 8:30am EST.
A tight match is expected as eleventh seeded Garbine Muguruza will face Ons Jabeur in the Third Round here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Both players have been in outstanding form lately and this seems destined to be a battle. Who will get the win and advance to the Round of 16?
Garbine Muguruza is ranked #12 in the WTA rankings and has been one of the most consistent performers on the Tour over the past few years. She is a former champion here at Wimbledon and should be considered one of the very top contenders for the crown this year. She started her 2021 Wimbledon Championships very strongly, defeating Fiona Ferro and Lesley Kerkhove in dominant fashion. Muguruza needs to be confident to play well, and she looks like she is in the zone here, something that should have the rest of the field very afraid. She is the favorite here against Ons Jabeur, but should be wary of the Tunisian’s form.
Ons Jabeur is the world number 24, and is seeded 21st here at Wimbledon. The Tunisian has been in similarly dominant form to her opponent Garbine Muguruza, defeating Rebecca Peterson easily and crushing Venus Williams. Her slide and ability in transition are real assets on this surface, and she has really developed a strong all-court game. While she enters this match against Muguruza as the underdog, she certainly is capable of causing the upset here if things go her way.

These ladies have played once before, with Muguruza winning a close match when they met in Hobart last year. This is a difficult match to call as both women have been playing very good tennis and are well suited to these grass courts. In a close match, it is always smart to go with experience, and Garbine Muguruza has that in bunches. She has been here before and won the title, and when the going gets tough she will have that to fall back on. Ons Jabeur is a very strong opponent and is capable of winning a set, but she will fall short here and the Spaniard will advance, possibly in three sets.
