Venus Williams vs Qiang Wang, Wimbledon R2 Preview

Wimbledon ???? Day 3, R2 Match Preview:
(10) ?? Venus Williams vs ?? Qiang Wang

Venus Williams continues her 2017 Wimbledon campaign on Wednesday with a second round clash against China’s Qiang Wang. This is a very emotional time for Venus who is dealing with some serious off-court issues. The American looked solid enough in her opening round match, beating Elise Mertens 7-6 6-4. Venus did breakdown in her post-match press conference and is clearly a little vulnerable at the moment, nevertheless, tennis will be a good escape for Venus and she should like nothing more than to keep her run going at SW19.

Venus overcame a tough opening round test at SW19 on Wednesday. Venus was never comfortable but did what she had to do on route to a 7-6 6-4 win over Elise Mertens. Qiang Wang was slightly more comfortable in her opening round win, Wang claimed a 6-3 6-4 victory over Kai-Chen Chang to advance to the second round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career.

Williams and Wang played a few months ago in the opening round at Roland Garros, Venus claimed a tightly contested 6-4 7-6 victory. I suspect Venus will again get the better of Wang, probably with a fairly similar score. Venus knows how to get through these types of matches and should generally have too much firepower and grass court expertise for Wang.

Prediction: Venus Williams to defeat Qiang Wang in 2 sets
