Anastasia Potapova v Tatjana Maria Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 21 year old Potapova, and Maria, who is thirteen years her senior.
2016 Junior Wimbledon Champion Potapova
Potapova won the Girls’ Singles at Wimbledon back in 2016, when she beat Dayan Yastemska in the final.
She has never been beyond the second round there since, and the ban means that she will have no chance to improve on her record there this year.
Earlier this year, having been beaten in two WTA finals, she finally won her first senior title, when she defeated compatriot Veronika Kudermetova to lift the Istanbul Cup.
Her form has been mixed since then, and she would have been disappointed to miss out on the French Open, having been knocked out in qualifying.
Having opted to remain on clay ever since, she has had no practice on grass coming into this match.
German Wildcard Maria
Maria’s third round appearance at Wimbledon back in 2015 remains the best she has managed at a Grand Slam tournament, in a professional career dating back more than twenty years.
Now 34, the German was once ranked as high as 45 in the world, but having dropped outside the top 100, has had to rely on a wildcard into the main draw of this tournament this time.
However, she has been a winner on the senior tour this year, beating the Brazilian Laura Pigossi to win the Colombian Open in April. Significantly perhaps, her other tournament win at this level was on grass, in Mallorca four years ago.
This will be her fourth grass court tournament of the season. She reached the quarter-finals of junior events in Surbiton and Gaiba in Italy, sandwiched with a first round defeat to Katie Boulter of Great Britain in Nottingham.
Potapova v Maria Prediction and Tip
Potapova has had no practice on grass prior to this match against Maria and that makes her potentially vulnerable to an upset, However, if she can rediscover the form on grass that made her a junior Wimbledon champion, she should win.
