WTA Wimbledon, Quarter Final: V Williams v Shvedova

This will be their first meeting.

Before the tournament I gave Venus a chance of reaching the quarter finals and she hasn’t let me down. She hasn’t done it the easy way though. Vekic served for the 1st set in round 1 and her 2nd and 3rd round matches went to 3 sets. In the third round Kasatkina pushed her all the way with Venus winning 10-8 in the 3rd set. She made a terrible start to hr 4th round encounter with Suarez Navarro and came back from 0-3 to win in straight sets.

Shvedova has been playing above her normal levels so far. She didn’t face a single break point in her straight sets win over Safarova.  Svitolina took her to 3 sets and Lisicki was beaten in straight sets.

There is some value on Shvedova at the start. I think she can take this to 3 sets if she can maintain her level.

I’d favour Venus to win in 3.
