Dominik Koepfer v Kwon Soon-woo Head to Head
No previous match has been played between Koepfer and Soon-woo before this second round at Wimbledon.
Koepfer Overcomes Opelka in Opener
Not too many would have expected Koepfer to dominate his first round outing the way he did especially after the kind of start he had on grass this season.
Koepfer, whose only previous match victory on grass had come at the 2019 Wimbledon, registered a resounding win over Reilly Opelka in straight sets. He needed just over two hours to complete a 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-2 win and march into the second round.
What was so fascinating about Koepfer’s victory was Opelka was unable to save any of the three break-points he faced in the encounter but the German himself did not get broken. And even he faced three of them.
This is despite Opelka smashing 19 aces and blasting 40 winners in the encounter, with Koepfer’s ability to maintain a low unforced error count (20 to his opponent’s 33) becoming the difference between the two players.
Koepfer will fancy his chances in his second round match.
Soon-woo Achieves Career-Best Again
It’s been a year to remember for Kwon Soon-woo who has now made it to his career-best at Wimbledon, following on from what he had at French Open as well. At Roland-Garros the South Korean player had entered round three – his career-best at any Grand Slam – and he has followed that up with a second round showing in London.
And he got there with a four-set win over Germany’s Daniel Masur, defeating him 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. The match lasted two hours and 39 minutes before he came through.
It was Soon-woo’s 14 aces and 41 winners that ensured he trumped Masur, who managed only 10 and 33 respectively, while the Korean also hit 14 fewer unforced errors in the encounter.
Kwon had a chance in the first set itself when he went a break up but Masur broke back immediately and then pushed him into a tie-breaker which ended in favour of the German. From there on, however, Kwon got a break apiece in each of the three sets to complete the win.
Can he now take down a second German in a row?
Koepfer v Soon-woo Prediction and Tip
We are looking at Koepfer starting a 3/5 favourite to claim this and backing him to do that easily. Might even go with a straight-set win but a fighting Kwon could make it slightly difficult for the German.
