Ashleigh Barty vs Karolina Pliskova Wimbledon Finals Odds And Predictions
The women’s finals of Wimbledon 2021 will see Ashleigh Barty and Karolina Pliskova battle against each other for the auspicious trophy on Saturday, July 10th. Current women’s world no.1, Barty will be eyeing her first Wimbledon singles title, while the former No.1 is still chasing her first Grand Slam title. Ashleigh Barty played Angelique Kerber in the semi-finals. The clash was a crafty affair that included lengthy rallies between the two gifted players. The second semi-final between Aryna Sabalenka and Karolina Pliskova was much of fierce competition between two feisty women on the court.
Barty, downed Kerber, 6-3, 7-6 (3), to become the first finalists of this year. Pliskova got the better of Sabalenka, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to keep her first Grand Slam hopes high. The competition is all set for a nail-biting final between the two heavyweights in women’s tennis. Both the finalists have mastered the knack of serving. The 6-foot-1 tall Czech Republican, Pliskova is known for her flat groundstrokes and a blunt streak. The 29-year-old has changed plenty of coaches in her career so far, in the search for her first Grand Slam title.
Barty is a 5-foot-5 Australian who relies on her strong arms and discreet techniques. The 25-year-old has been working with coach Craig Tyzzer for a seemingly long period now. Barty depends a lot on heavy spin while Pliskova seemingly likes to thrash her shots quickly off the bounce. Barty has a quick forehand, but her signature move is the one-handed chip backhand which makes the ball wobble low on the surface which makes it difficult for her opponents to pick the shot on the grass.
Both the finalists have dropped only one set in their road towards the Wimbledon 2021 finals.
