Preview of Ashleigh Barty vs. Barbora Krejcikova
On Monday, Ashleigh Barty will face 14th seed Barbora Krejcikova in the Wimbledon fourth round in a clash of Roland Garros champions. Both ladies are aiming for their first All England Club trophy after defeating Parisian clay.

On Saturday, Barty defeated Katerina Siniakova 6-3, 7-5 in the third round to go to the second week. Meanwhile, Krejcikova extended her winning streak to 15 matches with a thrilling 7-6(1), 3-6, 7-5 triumph over Anastasija Sevastova.

Barty, the top seed, had a fantastic start to the season, winning three of her first six tournaments (Melbourne, Miami, and Stuttgart). Injury worries, on the other hand, prompted her to withdraw from the Italian Open and forced her to retire in the second round at Roland Garros.

Nonetheless, the Australian has been in excellent form this week and will be trying to build on that to win the tournament.

Krejcikova, on the other hand, is coming off a Roland Garros singles-doubles sweep. While the Czech has six Grand Slam titles in doubles, she proved last month that she isn’t only a doubles specialist by winning her first solo Major.

Krejcikova’s progress has been unusually swift, since she entered 2021 ranked way outside the top 60 in the world. She won her maiden WTA singles championship in Strasbourg two months ago and will finish Wimbledon in the top 15 of the rankings.

Krejcikova is making her main-draw debut this week at the All England Club, and she’ll be looking to build on that momentum in her match against Barty.

Head-to-head matchup between Ashleigh Barty and Barbora Krejcikova

Because this will be Ashleigh Barty’s first meeting with Barbora Krejcikova, their head-to-head record is now 0-0.

Prediction for Ashleigh Barty vs. Barbora Krejcikova
Ashleigh Barty and Barbora Krejcikova have a lot of variation in their game thanks to their doubles experience. They both enjoy controlling rallies by moving the ball from side to side and are also skilled at the net.

Both women have benefited from the serve-and-volley style this week, and neither has been afraid to approach the net. On Saturday, Krejcikova won every single net point she played in the deciding set of her third-round encounter.

Krejcikova, on the other hand, hasn’t yet faced a shot like Barty’s devastating slice backhand or unpredictable kick serve. This week, Barty has also surrendered less double faults than the Czech, giving her a clear advantage in the serve category.

Furthermore, Krejcikova’s previous match featured a massive 57 unforced mistakes, which is cause for alarm. Barty will take action if she is unable to stop the leaks.

Most likely, you’ll come out on top.

Ashleigh Barty will win three sets, according to my prediction.
