Boulter Made Nottingham Quarterfinal

Having peaked at 82nd on the rankings chart, Boulter has fallen to outside the top 200 at the moment but in more recent times she has shown some of the spark of the old.

Like, for instance, in the only tournament she played on clay – and it came on the ITF circuit – Boulter made it through the qualifiers to enter the semifinals.

The Brit was then involved at Nottingham Open where she won three rounds in a row to make it to the quarterfinal. And even as she lost that match, it wasn’t without putting a fight. In fact she won the first set and then retired from the match due to injury.

Boulter enters this match having won the first round at Wimbledon only once before this – it had come in 2018 – but given her opponent’s ranking and experience, this could be a golden chance for her to make it through to the second round again.

Lao Has One Career Match Win

For a player who has rarely played at the highest level and won just one match in the main draw of WTA events, qualifying for Wimbledon with three successive victories would count as a huge success for Lao. Especially given Lao has played a mere 11 career main draw matches.

This will also be her fourth main draw match on grass, and the first ever at Wimbledon.

With age not on her side – Lao’s already 30 and has been on the circuit since 2008 – there could be a sense that this represents her best chance to win a match at a Grand Slam.

Lao had earlier won just her second career ITF title and to then defeat three opponents in these qualifiers, all of whom were favourites coming into their match, would count as success. And as a confidence-booster.

Would the published author, as Lao is, also carve out a victory at the highest level here?

Boulter v Lao Prediction and Tip

Boulter is a huge favourite at 4/11 but we expect Lao to put up a solid showing and taking at least one set off her opponent.
