Lesia Tsurenko vs Claire Liu – Match Predictions
Over 19.5 Games
Neither Tsurenko nor Liu has impressed on grass. The Ukrainian took an extended break after her fourth-round exit at French Open and was found wanting against compatriot Dayana Yastremska in Birmingham. Liu impressed against Mara Guth, claiming both sets on tie-breakers. Their last meeting saw 22 games and we believe another long duel will be on the cards at Wimbledon. Given their recent form, over 19.5 games present value and is a likely outcome.
2-0 to Lesia Tsurenko
Liu has only one win against top 100 rivals in her last 11 matches. She has success at the All England Club at the junior level and has struggled to translate it on the main tour. Tsurenko will fancy her chances as she reached the third round last time around and arrives in Wimbledon after making it to the fourth round at Roland Garros. With Liu tasting defeat at the hands of Tsurenko in Miami last year in straight sets and the Ukrainian in good form, we are backing a 2-0 victory for her, piling on the American’s miseries.
Lesia Tsurenko vs Claire Liu Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.
The seasoned Ukrainian tennis player has impressed with her impressive performances on the clay court but found the transition to grass challenging. Following her fourth-round exit at Roland Garros to Iga Swiatek, she will have grander designs at the All England Club to improve on her thrid round exit last time around. It will surely allow her to continue rising in the rankings, which she has done so over the past six months.
The aspiring American tennis player claimed the 2017 Wimbledon Junior Championship but since has not had similar success. She made it to the second round last time around, a similar result she garnered in the prior edition. As it stands, she is fighting for her place in the top 100 and needs to progress beyond the first round to keep her placement. It looks like an unlikely scenario given the fact she has lost 10 of her 11 completed matches against the top 100, leaving alone players at the top of the game.
Lesia Tsurenko vs Claire Liu Head to Head
This is the second meeting between Tsurenko and Liu on the WTA tour. Tsurenko won their battle at the 2022 Miami Open, defeating the American ace in the first round of qualification.
