Caroline Garcia v Jule Niemeier Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two players on the WTA Tour.
Garcia Seeking Reprieve in Hamburg
Just three years, Caroline Garcia was ranking in the top 10 with the elites on the back on some superb tennis. Now, she is ranked #76 after falling off the circuit, battling form woes.
Her season to date has been rather uneventful and unexciting by her standards. With just one win in the last three tournaments, it suffices to say that Garcia is nowhere close to being the formidable opponent she once was.
But that isn’t to say that she hasn’t had her moments. There were times when the 27-year-old show glimpses of her former self by reaching the quarterfinal in Parma and the third round in WTA Dubai and Gippsland Trophy.
On the whole, however, she has had a really mediocre season. Starting as the eighth seed in Hamburg, she has a chance to make amends for that. Garcia finds herself n a relatively easy bracket with a comfortable path to the semis.
Niemeier Capable of Big Wins
Jule Niemeier may be just 21 years old but she is more than capable of punching above her weight. Her year to date win-loss tally stands at 27-11 although, a majority of it has been accrued on ITF circuits.
Her most notable performances include reaching the quarterfinal in ITF Zagreb $60,000 and winning the title thereafter in ITF Prague $25,000. In both those tournaments, she started as a qualifier.
But what propelled Niemeier into the top 200 was a semifinal run in Strasbourg Open – as a qualifier, she defeated the likes of Arantxa Rus and Shelby Rogers before succumbing to Barbora Krejcikova. Thereafter, she reached the main draw in Bett1Open (losing to Belinda Bencic in the first round) and the final qualifying round of Wimbledon.
Garcia v Niemeier Prediction and Tip
Garcia will start as the odds-on favourite but Niemeier is more than capable of making things difficult for the Frenchwoman. Expect an intriguing yet exciting match in Hamburg.
