Kevin Anderson v Guido Pella Head to Head
The two players have never met on the ATP circuit, and this will be their first ever meeting.
Anderson Looking at Another Successful Wimbledon Campaign
After a phenomenal 2017 and 2018, qualifying for the US Open final in 2017, and Wimbledon final in 2018, Kevin Anderson returned to Wimbledon, seeded number four ahead of his ATP ranking of eight. However, his break into the top five of the rankings late last year was soon to be followed by a recurring elbow injury that has seen him out of action for the majority of this year thus far.
Anderson had a comfortable first round win against Pierre – Hugues Herbert, and apart from a dip in concentration against veteran Janko Tipsarevic in the second set, also looked strong in his four set second round victory.
There remained question marks around his fitness, but he has seemed relatively untroubled so far.Anderson is back close to full fitness reportedly, and will be looking forward to doing well again on the grass. With a big serve and improved forehand and game to back it up, Anderson, if close to full health is definitely a factor to reckon with at Wimbledon.
Pella In Midst of Purple Patch
Argentine Guido Pella is in the midst of a very good year, that has seen him break into the top 30 of the ATP rankings. He has had successful runs on the ATP tour, predominantly on clay during the South American clay swing, as well as the European clay court season. A good baseliner, Pella has a game that is very well suited to the slower surfaces, and in fact least so, to grass.
Pella did not have the best start to the grass court season losing early at both Halle and Eastbourne. However, he has put in gritty performances thus far in the first two rounds to beat Marin Copil and Andreas Seppi. With the courts slower this year, and temperatures high this week, Pella will be a tricky opponent if he can pick the giant Anderson serve.
Kevin Anderson v Guido Pella Predictions & Tips
Both have very different playing styles and this can well make for an interesting match-up. While Pella may not be the ideal grass court player, he has been in good form before the tournament and come through difficult matches against well regarded opponents in the first two rounds as well. On the other hand, Anderson who has looked to have recovered well from his elbow injury, did have the drop in concentration briefly against Tipsarevic in the second round match, however. Expect a good battle on the center counter opener on day five, and the outcome will largely depend on which player can seize the momentum better. Anderson to serve his way to a four set victory.
Tip: Anderson to win in four sets: 13/10 (888Sport)
