World number one Ash Barty heads into Wimbledon with no idea how she is going to fare having had a thigh injury at Roland Garros. Her second round exit in Paris came as a surprise to many but apart from that blip has picked up where she left off before the pandemic. Three titles in 2021 and arguably hasn’t even played her favourite surface where Barty will be relishing the challenge of trying to win her maiden Wimbledon title.

As for Carla Suarez Navarro, this is going to be her last Wimbledon but for her to be even in this position is a miracle. Having recovered from cancer, the Spaniard will get her dream farewell in front of a 50% Centre Court crowd. Whatever happens on Tuesday, Suarez Navarro will have an occasion that she will never forget.

Tactically this will be a tricky match for the world number one with Suarez Navarro being able to dictate the points with her backhand mixed with her determination. However Barty’s slice could prove too much for the Spaniard as if fully fit Barty should have a fairly comfortable afternoon.

Prediction: Barty in straight sets

Daniil Medvedev comes into Wimbledon with some superior form having reached the quarter-finals at his worst grand slam and winning a grass court event in Mallorca last week. The Russian seems perfectly suited to grass courts with his insane movement and powerful groundstrokes seem a match made in heaven for this surface.

However facing Medvedev will be the same player that knocked him out of Halle in Jan-Lennard Struff. The German continues to be a dangerous player on the ATP tour having reached the second week at Roland Garros with his hard-hitting style being an awkward opponent for any player.

Struff’s big serving and hitting mixed with clean net skills will be a troublesome match-up for the Russian especially on the grass courts at SW19. However last week’s Mallorca title would have given the Russian a much-needed confidence boost and it will be Medvedev who should prevail here.

Prediction: Medvedev in five sets.

If there is anywhere that Serena Williams will win her 24th grand slam title than it will be at Wimbledon. However two thumping finals defeats to Simona Halep and Angelique Kerber have seen her crumble at the final hurdle. However with a favourable draw the 23-time grand slam champion will hope that 2021 is finally the year.

Tuesday’s opponent isn’t in the most confident form as Aliaksandra Sasnovich has only won back-to-back matches at two events this year and has lacked real confidence since her breakthrough season a few years ago.

This is a perfect first match for the 23-time grand slam champion who doesn’t really need to be near 80% to out-power her Belarusian opponent.

Prediction: Serena in straight sets.
