Camila Giorgi

Czech tennis star Karolina Pliskova would be desperate for a win. Recently, she was knocked out in the second round encounter at the Grass Court Championships in Berlin. Moreover, she wasn’t able to move into the third round at the French Open 2021 as well.

However, the fifth-seeded player is expected to perform better here. In the last 10 matches Pliskova has played, she has emerged victorious 6 times. Her recent form hasn’t been that well but she has the ability to make a strong comeback by registering back-to-back wins.

Whereas Camila Giorgi had to battle hard in the qualifiers in order to reach the main draw where she will face Pliskova in her first game. Giorgi’s recent form hasn’t been great as she has won only 5 out of her last 10 games. However, she was able to perform well in the qualifiers.

Giorgi was stretched to the third set in the first qualifier by Polish tennis player Magda Linette. After dropping the first set, Giorgi made a magnificent comeback and won the contest by 6-7, 6-4, 6-4. She also defeated Ajla Tomljanović in straight sets in the second qualifier.

Karolina Pliskova

29-year-old Pliskova has lost both of her last two matches. She hasn’t done well recently on grass as well as clay court. However, she will fancy her chances to go past Camila Giorgi who has struggled in the marquee tournaments in the recent past.

The odds are surely in favor of Karolina Pliskova, however, the winning momentum is with Camila Giorgi who has won her last two matches. It is going to be a nail-biter for sure.

Prediction: Karolina Pliskova to win in three sets.
