Katie Boulter vs Daria Saville – Match Predictions

Under 21.5 Games

Boulter’s last two matches finished in agony but did go the distance. It has been a similar case for Saville, who is making a long-awaited return to the WTA tour after eight months. Boulter clocked 46 games in her last two outings while Saville was involved in two three-set affairs. With both players pushing their rivals, we expect a similar outcome in this duel. The Under 21.5 Games selection gives value given the respective foe’s outings and should come to fruition at the All England Club.

2-0 to Katie Boulter

Since the start of grass swing, Boulter has only been involved in one three-set affair. This has come in 11 matches, where she has welcomed challenges from all and sundry. While Saville is far from being in optimal condition, both of her games on return have been three-set affairs. With just one of Boulter’s eight wins needing a deciding set, we are backing a 2-0 victory for the British number 1.

Katie Boulter

The British number enters Wimbledon with hopes of home fans pinned on her. Boulter started the campaign brightly with a run to the W100 Surbiton semi-final before claiming silverware at Nottingham. However, her forays at Birmingham and Eastbourne International did not go according to plan with Lin Zhu and Petra Martic knocking her out of the events in the first round.

Daria Saville

After an eight-month break, Daria Saville returned to the court. It proved to be a good omen as she defeated Madison Brengle in a three-set affair. However, the Australian could not go past the second round with Cristina Bucsa cutting short her adventures in Birmingham. Even in defeat, Saville gave a decent account of her abilities, shaving a set off Busca.
