Ons Jabeur continues her run at in her debut at the Birmingham Classic as she wins 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(3) in over two hours against Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez in the Round of 16 to advance into the quarter-finals of the tournament as she chases her maiden Singles title.

Jabeur extends her stay in Birmingham after a 4th round to defeat to American teen-sensation Coco Gauff at the 2021 French Open, concluding a good Clay season for the World No. 24.

Anastasia Potapova makes the most of her debut appearance in the main draw of the Birmingham Classic 2021. Anastasia had tried her luck in the 2019 edition as well but lost in the first qualifying round itself failing to enter the main daw. She enters the quarter-final defeating Kristian Mladenovic 6-3, 6-3 in just over 1 hour.

This will be the 2nd quarter-final for the 20-year old Russian who also played in the quarter-finals of the 2021 Dubai Open where she lost in straight-sets. Since then she has been struggling a bit in finding her form which was displayed in her poor results on the Clay.

Anastasia will come into the clash with career Grass record of 6-3 and is currently 12-12 for the season. She had a decent season on Hardcourt so far being 7-7 but her 3-5 record on Clay has dampened her record for the season.

Ons will come into the clash with Grass record of 44-16 throughout her career and a good season record of 25-10, that included her 10-6 record on Hardcourts and 13-4 on Clay. Looking at the numbers, Ons will be the favourite to move into the semi-finals and get closer to her maiden career title.

Prediction: Ons Jabeur to win in straight-sets.
