Kaja Juvan and CoCo Gauff meet Saturday in the third round of the 2021 tennis Wimbledon.
Kaja Juvan is coming off a straight sets win over Clara Burel that took 19 games to decide. In the victory, Juvan won 67 percent of her first serve points and 64 percent of her second serve points. Juvan won 65 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her nine break points. Juvan can still greatly improve her serve, but she hasn’t dropped a set through her first two matches. Each of Juvan’s last four wins have been decided in straight sets. Juvan looks to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time in her career. Juvan has won six of her last eight matches on grass court.
CoCo Gauff is coming off a straight sets win over Elena Vesnina that took 19 games to decide. In the victory, Gauff won 77 percent of her first serve points and 38 percent of her second serve points. Gauff won 63 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her seven break points. Gauff saved two of her three break points and hit nine aces in the victory. Gauff now has 18 aces this tournament and is a legit threat if she keeps piling up free points. Gauff looks to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the fourth time in her career. Gauff has won three of her last four matches on grass court.
These two have split the two meetings, as Gauff won Adelaide of this year and Juvan won the 2019 French Open. This years match was decided in three sets.
Juvan simply hasn’t been consistent enough with her serve to trust her in this spot. Gauff has the power and shotmaking ability to give Juvan issues with weak serves. We’ve also seen Gauff thrive on the big stage and this seems to be no different.
Give me Gauff yet again, and I’ll back in her straight sets for max betting value.
