Aryna Sabalenka vs Camila Giorgi : Preview
Aryna Sabalenka continues her rampant run as the top-seed enters the quarter-final at the Eastbourne 2021. She topples Alison Riske 6-1, 6-4 in just over an hour to continue her bid for 11th career title as she prepares for the Wimbledon 2021 where she is seeded 3rd.
Sabalenka’s excellent season continues to improve as she moves ahead this week at Eastbourne. In her week in Berlin, she certainly did have an early exit, but her doubles title with Olympics partner Victoria Azarenka capped off a good week as she gained momentum and confidence coming into this week at Eastbourne.
Camiila Giorgi moves into the quarter-finals of the competition after starting her tournament from the qualifying stages. She has won 3 of her 4 matches this week in 3-sets of which she came back from a set down to emerge victorious in the next 2 sets. Putting up a great fight, she has shown some great resilience to reach the quarter-finals.
Gorgi reaches her 2nd quarter-final of the season after having reached the last-8 stage previously at the WTA Lyon Open 2021. She will have to dig deep if she aims for her first semi-final of the season when she takes on Sabalenka in the quarters.

Camila Gorgi comes into the tie with a career Grass record of 45-24 and a season record of 11-8. She had an identical record of 2-3 on Hardcourts and Clay and a 2-1 record on Indoor Hardcourts.

Aryna will be the clear favourite for this clash as she continues wrapping her games in straight-sets as compared to Camila who has been forced to battle in 3-sets for the past week. Sabalenka comes into the tie with a career Grass record of 18-12 and an overall season record of 29-9.
Prediction: Aryna Sabalenka to win in three-sets.
