July 5, 2021 9:00 am EDT
Ashleigh Barty (1) meets Barbora Krejcikova (14) in the fourth round of the Wimbledon on Monday, July 5th, 2021.
Which of these two Grand Slam champions will come out on top as they look to get themselves one step closer to their second major title? Will it be the higher ranked Australian or the recently in form Barbora Krejcikova?
Barbora Krejcikova came through an extremely tight match in the third round, beating Anastasija Sevastova in 4 sets 7-6/3-6/7-5. Barbora Krejcikova will be happy that she has been able to show such an amazing form over the last month and she will know that coming through a tight match will help her remember that she can do this. However, Barbora will now meet a much tougher opponent in Ashleigh Barty and she will have to ensure that any moments she can go in front of the match, she needs to take them because otherwise she will have a tough time making a comeback.
Ashleigh Barty played a very strong match in the third round, beating Katerina Siniakova in 2 sets 6-3/7-5. Ashleigh Barty was cruising through the match for the vast majority, right until the middle of the second set when Siniakova broke back and was nearly making a comeback. However, Barty used all of her experience and success to show composure and get the win under her belt in 2 sets. Ashleigh Barty will know that she cannot be as complacent as she was in the second set when she was up, especially as she now meets the in form Barbora Krejcikova.

This is going to be the 1st meeting between both players, and this is going to be a very tight encounter. Ashleigh is the favourite for the tite, but Barbora is the most recent Grand Slam champion and is on a 10 match winning streak. Barbora will want to come out here and show us that she can beat the best in the world now that she has found some success. However, I think on grass Barty has the upper hand because she is the much more skillful player with her backhand slices. It will be entertaining and tight, but Barty will win.
