Bouzkova vs Garcia: prediction for the WTA Wimbledon match
Marie Bouzkova is having her best ever Wimbledon tournament. Before 2022, the Czech player was unable to get past the second round at London.
Marie got off to a slow start of the tournament. She managed to beat Collins only in three sets (5:7, 6:4, 6:4). After that, Czech player secured straight set victories over two American players - Ann Li (6:0, 6:3) and Alison Riske (6:2, 6:3). In two latest matches Bouzkova didn't lose a single game at her serve.
Caroline Garcia was unable to get past the first round in each of three latest Wimbledon tournaments. But French player approached the current edition of that competition in a fantastic form and won three matches in a row. Caroline also won a title at Bad Homburg, so her winning streak is currently at eight matches.
It was not easy for Garcia to reach that stage. In the first round she narrowly beat Miyazaki on the decisive tiebreak (3:6, 6:1, 7:6). After that she secured a victory over Emma Raducanu in straight sets (6:3, 6:3). In the third round against Zhang Shuai, Garcia had to play two tiebreaks (7:6, 7:6).
Garcia played three tiebreaks in the current tournament already
Only in one of five latest matches of Bouzkova more than nine games were played in the first set
There is no clear favourite here. Bouzkova put up a fantastic performance in two previous matches, while Garcia is on a eight-game winning streak. However, French player has a tough schedule, so she is probably low on energy by now. Moreover, Czech player won the only head-to-head match. She will probably come out on top once again.
Our prediction - Bouzkova to win the match
Garcia is unlikely to give up so easily. Both players are great servers, so we are expecting a long match.
Our second bet is on total over 21 games
