Wimbledon is undoubtedly approaching, as players have begun to get more interested in grass-court competitions. WTA Viking International Eastbourne, for example, begins tomorrow in Eastbourne, England. On June 21, 2021, Czech tennis player Karolina Pliskova will face Donna Vekic of Croatia in the round of 32. Pliskova defeated Vekic in straight sets in the first round of the Roland Garros to go to the second round.

Pliskova has been a pleasant surprise since the beginning of 2021. Despite reaching the finals of the Italian Open last month, he fell miserably against Iga, without scoring a single game during the match. She also advanced to the quarterfinals of the Stuttgart Open, but her hopes were dashed in a three-set defeat against Australian Ash Barty. In general, she has performed admirably in recent months.

In 2021, Vekic, on the other hand, hasn’t played much tennis. Her most recent match was at the Birmingham Classic versus Heather Watson. Despite being the favourite, she was defeated in straight sets by Watson. She hasn’t accomplished much this year, except from reaching the Birmingham Classic quarterfinals.

In their three meetings, the Czech star has won all three matches. In addition, Vekic has only won one set in each of the three match-ups. Surprisingly, the two had previously competed in doubles as a team in the Brisbane International in January 2020. They will undoubtedly be aware of their advantages and disadvantages.
