Angelique Kerber vs. Jelena Ostapenko, Wimbledon SF Prediction

?? Wimbledon semi-final prediction
?? (11) Angelique Kerber vs. ?? (12) Jelena Ostapenko

I’m going to side with Kerber here. I always like Kerber in these types of match-ups. I rate Kerber as the best counter-puncher in the world, she thrives on pace and has a habit of unsettling powerful opponents. Ostapenko has been impressive this tournament but she has not faced a challenge like Kerber and I highly doubt the Latvian will consistently hit through Kerber’s defense to get through to a second Grand Slam final. Kerber is far more experienced, mentally tougher, more consistent and more reliable. Kerber certainly wins in this match-up more often than not, Ostapenko needs to redline to get through this one.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to defeat Jelena Ostapenko
