Karolina Pliskova v Ludmilla Samsonova: Preview
World No.13 Karolina Pliskova has played some quite attacking and aggressive tennis at the Wimbledon Championships 2021. She recently defeated Tereza Martincova in the third round of the tournament in straight sets in the third round and looks in some rock-solid form. Interestingly, she is yet to lose a set at the Grand Slam.
On the other hand, her opponent, Ludmilla Samsonova has faced some trouble before reaching the pre-quarters. Both her last two matches have gone down to three sets where she has barely survived. However, she has beaten two great players, Jessica Pegula and Sloane Stephens to book her place in the fourth round of the tournament.
It’ll be a big test of Samsonova’s returns as Pliskova is serving really well. She has got the high serve and rarely loses her service games. While Pliskova has the advantage on the serves, she’ll need to prepare herself for Samsonova’s dropshots. Other than this, the Russian is a master of long rallies and Pliskova must avoid them in order to stand any chance against her.

Karolina Pliskova v Ludmilla Samsonova: Prediction
Because of her splendid form, Karolina Pliskova will surely begin the match as the favorite. However, it won’t be shocking if Ludmilla Samsonova turns the tables around and beats the Czech player.
Samsonova entered the tournament as a wildcard player but can win the match if she manages to find her momentum right from the beginning of the match. Who will advance to the quarter-finals of the Wimbledon Championships 2021?
