Our favourite Danielle Collins vs Beatriz Haddad Maia predictions

Finally, we’ve got to the point of Wimbledon 2024 where the seeds will now meet each other. This match sees the 11th seed taking on the 20th seed in what should be a high-quality showdown. But only one will make the fourth round. So, who will it be and what are the best markets to back?

Haddad Maia to win a set @ 1/2 (1.50)

Based on her last two matches and the level she’s capable of producing on her day, I firmly believe Haddad Maia can take a set from Collins. I just think her serve will cause issues for the American, and she can back this up with her huge forehand – perfect for grass.

Three total sets @ 11/8 (2.38)

It’s always risky picking a three-set market when matches are played in the best-of-three format. But with this match being a bit too tight to call, combined with the enticing odds for this bet, I’m shooting for a three-set battle.

Let me give you some extra details on these two before they face off in the third round of Wimbledon on Saturday.

Danielle Collins preview

Collins has enjoyed one of the best 2024 seasons of any other player on the WTA Tour. In what she’s claimed will be her final professional season, she seems to have relaxed and taken her game to new levels. That said, she’s not what I’d call a grass court specialist, and she may struggle with some of the flatter groundstrokes from the Brazilian – not to mention the slices! Lastly, Collins has never gone beyond the 3rd round at Wimbledon.

Beatriz Haddad Maia preview

Haddad Maia is now ranked 20 in the world due to some up-and-down performances over the last 12 months. That means she’s the 20th seed for Wimbledon 2024, yet she’s facing the 11th seed in this third-round match. As for her grass court form, she’s not lost a set so far, and her lefty serve could prove tough to deal with for Collins. However, her chances depend on whether she can land her big shots or not.

Collins vs Haddad Maia head to head

Despite how long these two have been on tour, they’ve never played each other professionally. Of course, this means there is no history in the H2H department, but it also means it will be 1-0 to one of these two after this match is played!
