Ashleigh Barty vs Katerina Siniakova
July 3, 2021 9:00 am EDT
Ashleigh Barty (1) meets Katerina Siniakova in the third round of the Wimbledon on Saturday, July 3rd, 2021.
Will Katerina Siniakova come out here on a mission to get one of the biggest wins of her career under her belt, or will Ashleigh Barty be able to add more to her game as she is improving with every match that she plays on grass?
Katerina Siniakova put on a good comeback win against Vandeweghe in the second round, being able to win after being a set down 4-6/6-2/6-2. Katerina will know that she needs to be at a better level right from the start here because if she starts slowly again, better opponents like Ashleigh Barty will not let her get away with it or let her pull off a comeback. Katerina is underrated on her day, but she has not shown us anything super special this year at Wimbledon and she will need to pull out something special if she is to cause the big upset.
Ashleigh Barty is definitely finding her rhythm on grass now after having come back from a hip injury. Barty knows that her game is very good on this surface but she needs to ensure she can get some easy wins under her belt to improve her confidence on court. Barty is one of the most consistent players in the game and she will definitely want to get her second grand slam title under her belt here, especially as the only real challenge to her might be Iga Swiatek if she is at her best. Will Barty continue to cruise through matches in London?

This is going to be the 1st meeting between both players, and I expect for this to be a straight forward victory for Ashleigh Barty. Siniakova might push the match far in each set, but Ashleigh Barty is just at a different level than Siniakova on her best day. Ashleigh Barty has a very complex game which is hard to break down especially if you have never met her before. Therefore I see Barty making her way to the fourth round here in London and keep her title campaign alive.
