Jule Niemeier v Tamara Korpatsch Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two ladies on the WTA Tour.
Niemeier Stuns Garcia
21-year-old Jule Niemeier is heading into this match after delivering one of the biggest wins of her career to date. Playing as a wildcard, she started her campaign in Hamburg against the Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia.
In an hour and 42 minutes, the German prevailed and upset Garcia with 6-4, 6-2 in a match where she was the better player for the most part.
By the looks of it, Niemeier is on track to emulate her Strasbourg Open run from May earlier this year. Back then, she started as a qualifier and managed to reach the semis before succumbing to Barbora Krejcikova. She had a similar run in another clay tournament – this one was the ITF Prague. Over there, the youngster won the title beating Dalma Galfi in the final – her first such feat since August 2019.
Niemeier is looking quite comfortable on clay at the moment. She is in familiar territory and also has the goods to beat Korpatsch.
Korpatsch Overcomes Minella
Tamara Korpatsch had a similar start to Niemeier’s, beating the Luxembourgian qualifier Mandy Minella 7-5, 6-3. Currently ranked World No. 141 – just 20 odd places above her opponent, Korpastch is looking to reach the penultimate round of a WTA tournament for the first time since July 2019.
Since then up, the 26-year-old has been continuously beaten right in the opening rounds on the WTA Tour. It was the same case this year in the WTA Stuttgart (lost to Karolina Pliskova in the first round) and the Bett1Open, where she fell in round two to Laura Siegemund.
Needless to say, her season so far has been quite uneventful and unexciting. She has appeared in just seven tournaments so far in 2021 with that run in Bad Hoburg (and the current one in Hamburg) being the best ones yet.
Niemeier v Korpatsch Prediction and Tip
Niemeier has had a much better season than Korpatsch (win-loss tally of 25-10 vs. 3-8 respectively) and consequently, she will start as the favourite here. While this match may head into three sets, Niemeier, given her momentum and confidence right now, should make it to the quarterfinal.
