Ajla Tomljanovic vs Yulia Putintseva: Preview

Ajla Tomljanovic
Ajla Tomljanovic made it to the Wimbledon quarters this year

Tomljanovic is enjoying some of the best tennis of her career, highlighted by a Wimbledon quarterfinal. The match will be a clash of styles. The tall Australian looks to hold her serve against a good returner in Putintseva. She will have to serve much better than her first-round match against Amanda Anisimova, where she won just 43% of second serve points and was broken six times in 15 service games.

Putintseva had a rough summer, but last year’s US Open quarterfinalist looks to be headed in the right direction with her convincing first-round win over a tricky opponent in Donna Vekic. She came out victorious after 2 sets, winning 7-5, 6-3.
