Daria Gavrilova vs. Zarina Diyas, Wimbledon R1 Prediction

?? Wimbledon, R1 Prediction
?? (26) Daria Gavrilova vs. ?? Zarina Diyas

I’m going to give Diyas the benefit of the doubt here. Diyas did suffer a terrible injury about a month ago so it is hard to know how she is physically. Assuming Diyas is ready to go, I think this is a good match-up for the Kazakh. Gavrilova has really struggled on grass in the past and has only ever won 1 main draw match at Wimbledon. Conversely, Diyas plays her best tennis on quick surfaces and has made it to the fourth round at SW19 on two previous occasions. Diyas has the consistent, strong baseline game to get the better of Gavrilova on this surface.

Prediction: Zarina Diyas to defeat Daria Gavrilova in 3 sets
