Jelena Ostapenko vs Tatjana Maria: Preview
World No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko started her Wimbledon season against Oceane Dodin in the first round and won quite comfortably. She then faced Yanina Wickmayer in the second round and it was an easy win yet again for her.

On the other hand, Tatjana Maria came up against Australia’s Astra Sharma and had to work hard to get past her in a three-set match after falling behind in the first set. She then faced Sorana Cirstea in the second round and despite having an easy first set, she lost the second set. With all to play for in the third set, Tatjana came up against all odds to beat the 26th-ranked Romanian in the third set and win the match eventually by 6-3, 1-6, 7-5 to book a place in the round of 32.
