Anett Kontaveit Vs Jule Niemeier: Preview
Kontaveit, boasting of a very good ranking (3), went past her American opponent Bernarda Pera without facing many hurdles – even though she faced more resistance in the first set (7-5) than she had in the second (6-1). The last time when the 26-year-old had played before this event was at the Roland Garros where her campaign met with a premature end, having gotten knocked out in the opening round itself. Now that she has made it one step further here in London, she will look to dig as deep as possible into this prestigious tournament.
On the other hand, Jule Niemeier has a career-high WTA singles ranking of world No. 94, achieved last month. For a young player just rising through the ranks, this is her opportunity to perform against a top 10 player and establish her credentials. It would be a hard grind but she will look around at results like what Harmony Tan has done to gather inspiration.
Anett Kontaveit Vs Jule Niemeier: Match Prediction
Kontaveit has won 62% of breakpoints compared to Niemeier’s 25%. Kontaveit has won 60% of points returning the second serve versus 55% for Niemeier. These numbers, along with the added experience of already having played against the top players in the women’s draw holds the Estonian in a better position to go further.
Prediction: Kontaveit to win in three sets.
