Angelique Kerber stepped into Wimbledon 2021 after an immensely successful outing at Bad Homburg in Germany. The German tennis star won the tournament without much hassle and has started off at Wimbledon in emphatic style. She thrashed Nina Stojanović in her first-round clash in straight sets.

However, she had to fight hard in her second and third-round clash. Aliaksandra Sasnovich gave her a mighty scare in the first set in the third-round match. However, Kerber made a thumping comeback and bageled Sasnovich in the second set eventually winning the contest by 2-6, 6-0, 6-1.

Kerber had a disastrous outing at the French Open where she was knocked out in the very first round. However, she has redeemed herself by giving back to back impressive performances at the highest level. On the other hand, Coco Gauff has been relentless throughout Wimbledon 2021.

She started off in brilliant fashion against Francesca Jones and has carried the incredible form going further into the marquee tournament. Coco defeated Kaja Juvan in straight sets in her last encounter. In fact, the American is yet to drop a set in the tournament.

Gauff showed glimpses of her class at the French Open where she was knocked out in the quarter-finals. At Wimbledon, the 17-year-old has dominated all her opponents thus far. However, the odds are slightly in the favor of the experienced Kerber who has shown no signs of weakness at Wimbledon 2021 thus far.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to win in three tight sets.
