Serena Williams vs Harmony Tan: Preview
The 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams has been out of the game for a long amount of time and she would be making an impressive comeback after almost a year. It was at the Wimbledon last year when she had to retire from her first round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, after having started off with a heavy strapping on her thigh in that encounter. Slipping in the fifth and the seventh game of the first set, she opted not to continue and retired from the match in tears. Serena will now hope she can return to the site of not just that unfortunate retirement but also that of seven singles title with a realistic chance of adding to her major victories.
On the other hand, Harmony Tan hasn’t been much on the grass-court, having never won a match on this surface before the start of this season. Having played only in her first qualifier last year, she had made till the second qualifying round at Wimbledon. And this season, she was sent packing from the first round of the Rosmalen Open by Tamara Zidansek, losing a three-setter. It was at the Gaiba Open, when she notched her first win on grass and also went onto win three matches in a row to reach the semifinal, before losing to Alison van Uytvanck in the semi-finals.
This will be the first meeting between the duo.
Serena Williams vs Harmony Tan: Prediction
Serena will go in as the favorite to win the match given her experience and superior ranking. She is one of the best players in the world and despite not being on court for a long time. Expect a good match with Serena moving into the next round.
Prediction: Serena to win in two sets.
