Caroline Wozniacki vs Timea Babos, Wimbledon R1 Preview

Wimbledon ???? Day 2, R1 Match Preview:
(5) ?? Caroline Wozniacki vs ?? Timea Babos

Caroline Wozniacki arrives at SW19 as one of the main contenders to win the title. Wozniacki has been very consistent in 2017, across all surfaces and given the open nature of the draw there is an opportunity for the Dane to finally claim that elusive first Grand Slam title. Wozniacki will begin her 2017 Wimbledon campaign on Tuesday with a tricky opening round match against Timea Babos.

Caroline Wozniacki’s preparation for Wimbledon went well in Eastbourne, the Dane made it all the way to the final in her only grass court tournament prior to the Championships. Wozniacki beat some quality opponents on route to the final in Eastbourne, including a win over world number 2: Simona Halep. Wozniacki was ultimately beaten by Karolina Pliskova in the final in straight sets but will take a lot out of her week in Eastbourne.

Wozniacki clearly enters this match with the better form, Timea Babos is seriously struggling in recent times. Babos has lost her last 8 matches on tour and 11 of her last 12.

This will surprisingly be the first ever meeting between Wozniacki and Babos. Wozniacki is playing well at the moment but should still be wary of Babos who has the type of game that can trouble the Dane if she brings her best. That seems unlikely given Timea’s recent results. Wozniacki is not easy to play against when confidence is lacking, this looks like it will be a routine win for Wozniacki.

Prediction: Caroline Wozniacki to defeat Timea Babos in 2 sets
