CoCo Gauff and Angelique Kerber meet Monday in the fourth round of the 2021 tennis Wimbledon.
CoCo Gauff is coming off a straight sets win over Kaja Juvan that took 18 games to decide. In the victory, Gauff won 70 percent of her first serve points and 52 percent of her second serve points. Gauff won 62 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her seven break points. Gauff saved four of her six break points, but she has to clean up her serve overall and remove four double faults. Gauff still has yet to drop a set this tournament and her confidence is only growing. Gauff looks to make her second career grand slam quarterfinal trip. Gauff has won four of her last five matches on grass court.
Angelique Kerber is coming off a three sets win over Aliaksandra Sasnovich that took 21 games to decide. In the victory, Kerber won 80 percent of her first serve points and 47 percent of her second serve points. Kerber won 69 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her nine break points. Kerber lost a combined one game after dropping the first set, and she hit 22 winners with seven unforced errors. This is the best Kerber has looked in quite some time, as she’s now won nine of her last 10 matches. Kerber hopes to make her 11th career grand slam quarterfinal and the first since 2018 Wimbledon. Kerber has won eight straight matches on grass court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
We’ve been on the Gauff train since it started a couple years ago, and I’ll be rooting for her here as well. However, in terms of where to put my money, I can’t bet against Kerber. She’s playing her best tennis in a while, has the experience and plays her best grand slam tennis at Wimbledon where she won in 2018 and was a finalist in 2016.
I’ll back Kerber.
