🎾 Advanced and statistics
After a gray year, Serena returns to the forefront, having a solid evolution on the All England Club land, where he has won the trophy 7 times and played in three final races, including last year.During the five games played, the American surpassed several difficult moments, especially in the quarter-finals match against compatriot Alison Riske, when Williams’s decisive set seemed to give up physically.At 37, this may be one of Serena’s last chances to equalize the Grand Slam trophy record held by Margaret Court, so he is expected to treat the game against the crowd with maximum concentration against which he has not lost any set in direct parties.
Strycova is the surprise in the semifinals, being the worst-ranked sport still in the competition and the only one that did not start the race from the head of the series.Cehoaica has had a difficult date since the start of the higher-profile opponents’ league. Tsurenko, Siegemund, Bertens, Mertens and Konta were the victims of the Barbara, losing one set during the tournament.This is the best performance of his career at a Grand Slam tournament for the 33-year-old, in the past once again in quarters, also in London in 2014.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Serena Williams vs Barbora Strycova
Although the Czech player has been without problems in the semifinals, the match against Serena is very difficult, the American is on a very high level and the game on the grass fits well. Serena Williams’s strike force will definitely make the difference in this match, the only solution in the Czech Republic being the climbing around the net, but they will also have little chance of success. I’m counting on a highly controlled game by Serena Williams, and it’s going to be a good qualification in a new Wimbledon final.
Bet Tips: Serena Williams
Serena, although not yet in a very good aesthetic form, showed a level of play close to the one we had used before becoming a mother. It looks like the perfect opportunity to get a new Grand Slam title, 24th career and 8th at Wimbledon, which would match Margaret Court.
