Danielle Collins vs Belinda Bencic – Match Predictions
2-0 to Belinda Bencic
Neither Bencic nor Collins were active during the clay court swing. Their preparation for the Wimbledon Championships is similar, earning direct entry thanks to their WTA rankings. Considering the Swiss ace’s recent victory against Katie Swann and her past success on grass courts, including reaching five finals, we believe she has the upper hand against Collins. The match is poised to end in a 2-0 victory for Bencic, who should profit from her American rival’s physical complaints and limited experience on grass.
Under 21.5 Games
In Bencic’s victory over Swan, there were 20 games. The British hopeful impressed in the first set but could not cope with Bencic’s all-around display. On the other hand, Collins made little work of Julia Grabher, who was on a three-match losing streak. Bencic is the more formidable opponent and should dictate the proceedings on the court. She did take her time to get going against Katie but should be in her mould to get past Collins. Taking her extensive experience on grass in account, we expect to see a swift conclusion in Under 21.5 Games.
Danielle Collins vs Belinda Bencic Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.
Collins secured a much-needed victory over Julia Grabher after enduring a winless streak of over three months. The American player had to display her defensive skills, fending off all five breakpoints in a straight-set win. Collins has faced physical challenges in the clay-court swing, playing just two matches and failing to secure any wins. With limited grass court experience, having won only seven professional matches on the surface, she aims to improve upon her previous performances at Wimbledon, where in 2019 she reached the third round.
Belinda Bencic has returned to the winning column with a hard-fought victory over Katie Swan, ending a three-month drought. Despite a recent hip injury, Bencic showcased her resilience by overcoming a deficit in the first set and saving both breakpoints in the second. The Swiss player has had success on grass courts in the past, having reached tournament finals five times, including in 2021 and 2022. Although she faced early exits in her last two Wimbledon appearances, she has reached the third round on four occasions, most recently in 2019. Bencic’s titles in Adelaide and Abu Dhabi earlier this year highlight her potential to make a strong impact at this tournament.
