🇬🇧 Wimbledon, R1 Preview
🇱🇻 (21) Anastasija Sevastova vs. 🇮🇹 Camila Giorgi
Anastasija Sevastova and Camila Giorgi will go head-to-head for the first time when they meet at the opening round stage at Wimbledon on Monday. This is an interesting match-up because of the extreme contrast in styles, the versatile, all-court game of Sevastova against the aggressive, powerful game of Giorgi. Who will prevail?
Sevastova and Giorgi both played a couple of events on grass in the lead-up to Wimbledon. Sevastova failed to defend her title in Mallorca but did manage to reach the final where her tournament ended in a disappointing straight set loss at the hands of Tatjana Maria. The Latvian then went on to suffer a third round in Eastbourne, beaten by Daria Kasatkina in straight sets.
Camila Giorgi was unable to gain any momentum in her first couple of tournaments on grass. Giorgi failed to get through the qualifying draw in Birmingham, beaten by Oceane Dodin in 3 sets and was comfortably beaten by Caroline Wozniacki at the second round stage in Eastbourne.
It will be interesting to see how this match-up pans out, will consistency or power prevail?
