Petra Kvitova vs Madison Brengle, Wimbledon R2 Preview

Wimbledon ???? Day 3, R2 Match Preview:
(11) ?? Petra Kvitova vs ?? Madison Brengle

Petra Kvitova will continue her quest for a third Wimbledon title when she comes up against Madison Brengle in the second round at SW19 on Wednesday. Kvitova is one of the form players on tour at the moment despite being in just her third tournament back from a horrific injury in the pre-season. Kvitova is fresh off winning her first title of the year in Birmingham and raced through her opening round match against Johanna Larsson. Kvitova will face a familiar foe in the form of Madison Brengle in the second round, an opponent that actually has a winning record over Kvitova.

Petra Kvitova is one of the main title contenders at Wimbledon 2017 given her proven ability to win this tournament. Kvitova got off to a solid start on Monday, beating Johanna Larsson 6-3 6-4. Petra is arguably the most complete player on this surface in the draw right now and will look to build momentum against Madison Brengle on Wednesday, an opponent that has troubled Kvitova in the past. Brengle claimed her first ever victory at Wimbledon on day 1, beating Richel Hogenkamp 6-3 6-3.

Interestingly it is Brengle who holds a 2-1 head-to-head record over Kvitova. Brengle upset Kvitova in Stuttgart in 2015 and last year in Dubai. Kvitova finally got the better of Brengle in Tokyo last year, winning 6-3 6-3 in what was their most recent match.

On this surface, Kvitova should be far too strong for Brengle. Kvitova has all the weapons to easily deal with Brengle but the American has shown the ability to get under Kvitová’s skin and force the Czech into making too many errors. I don’t think Kvitova will make any such mistakes on this occasion, Kvitova will know what to expect and will be focused heading into this one. I expect an in-form Kvitova to fly through this match.

Prediction: Petra Kvitova to defeat Madison Brengle in 2 sets
