Paula Badosa vs Karolina Muchova: Preview
Paula Badosa has enjoyed a spectacular form at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 so far. She made a spectacular comeback from a set down against Magda Linette in the first round and shocked almost everyone.
Similarly, Karolina Muchova too has been phenomenal on grass this season. She has just lost a single set at the Grand Slam so far and recently thrashed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets in the third round. She was even a quarter-finalist in the last edition of the Wimbledon Championships but lost to Elina Svitolina there.
While Badosa will come prepared to return the quick serves of Muchova, the Czech player will have to be careful in the long rallies. Badosa often sets her opponent by playing some defensive tennis and then takes the point with the help of a winner whenever she gets some room.
