Sara Sorribes Tormo v Ana Konjuh Head to Head
The two players have never met before on the WTA Tour.
Tormo Looking Good on Grass
Sara Sorribes Tormo last played in the WTA Bad Homburg Open where she reached the semifinal to kickstart her grass swing. However, she did find herself lucky with a walkover against Victoria Azarenka but that didn’t help much. In the semis, the Spaniard fell to Katerina Siniakova in straight sets.
That said, Sorribes Tormo has delivered a few threatening runs in this season and is more than equipped to make life difficult for her opponents. She won her maiden singles title in the WTA Guadalajara, beating Eugenie Bouchard in the final. Then, she reached the semifinal in the Monterrey Open and the quarterfinal in the Miami Open.
In fact, the 24-year-old Spaniard had a similar spell in the WTA Abu Dhabi earlier this year too.
While her clay season was less than eventful, she did do well to find her groove on grass. Currently ranked World No. 50, she is definitely talented enough to outclass the lowly-ranked players on the tour and deliver a deep run here in Wimbledon.
Konjuh Makes it to the Main Draw
Former World No. 20 Ana Konjuh was primed to reach new heights on the tour before her career was derailed by an injury in September 2017. Since then, it has been a long, arduous journey for the Croat to reach the heights she was once at.
Konjuh wasn’t able to play consistent tennis on the tour up until the second half of the last season. She started small on the ITF circuits and took her time to build the form needed for WTA events.
Her efforts seemed to have paid off. Just last September, she was ranked in the mid 600s and now, she is World No. 129. Konjuh started the 2021 season with early-round exits in the Australian Open, WTA Dubai, and St. Petersburg Trophy as a qualifier. But those matches there helped her set the stage for a comeback.
In the Miami Open, she stormed to the fourth round after beating Madison Keys and Iga Swiatek. Then in the Serbia Ladies Open a few months later, she reached the final, all the way from the qualifying rounds. Even though she lost that final game to Paula Badosa, Konjuh would still be pleased with the fact that she reached her first singles final since January 2017.
And now at SW 19, she has navigated her qualifying rounds successfully to reach the main draw.
Sorribes Tormo v Konjuh Prediction and Tip
Sara Sorribes Tormo will start this game as the favourite but given Konjuh’s pedigree and early success, it may not be an easy win. The 23-year-old Croatian has been working hard to reclaim her former glory and has got the skillset to deliver upsets.
Expect an entertaining game of tennis.
