Predictions

Years of hard work and sweat drip in front of the eyes seeing Roger Federer in the court. His agility has taken him this far into the tournament but Hubert Hurkacz, a wilful youngster exposed the veteran in the quarter-finals. Hurkacz forced Federer to a bagel set in the end, a first for the Swiss in Wimbledon history. Matteo Berrettini, the man with the powerful serve will face Hurkacz in the semis. Denis Shapovalov is left with the herculean task of facing Novak Djokovic.

Men’s singles semi-finals

Novak Djokovic vs Denis Shapovalov

Chasing his 20th Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic plays Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Open. Vocal about his intentions, Djokovic never shied away from challenges and has come a long way in his career. Despite reaching the semi-finals, the Serbian was never really tested in this tournament. He has dropped just a single set since the start, that too at the first game. Perhaps, Denish Shapovalov might be the right person to challenge Djokovic’s prowess. Shapovalov creates angles using his left-hand play, his forehand is robust and the way he recovered against Khanchanov in the last two sets shows his concentration. The passionate Canadian however, has never won against Djokovic. The players’ head-to-head record stands 6-0. Given that record, Denis Shapovalov can’t stop the Serbian’s quest to greatness.

Women’s Singles Final

Ashleigh Barty vs Karolina Pliskova

Snapping the unlucky streak of an Australian reaching the Wimbledon finals in Women’s Singles, Ashleigh Barty walks towards the final challenge against Karolina Pliskova with her head held high. During the start, volleys of criticism were thrown at the Australian professional regarding her failure in Grand Slams. Barty has destroyed all of them through her action. Winning the past five games in straight sets, Barty has established her dominance in the sport. Former No.1 Angelique Kerber faced defeat in the quarter-finals, after a comparatively short first set the Aussie had trouble in the initial stage of the second set. At a point, Barty was 2-5 behind but she fought back and took the game to a tiebreak. Making Kerber lose her serve thrice in the tiebreak, Barty owned the victory 7-6, (7-3).

Playing an equally competitive game against the number two seed, Aryna Sabalenka, Karolina Pliskova aced the game after falling short in the first set. She triumphed 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 in the game against Sabalenka. In her miraculous journey, she managed to get into her first-quarter final, then her first semi- final and now, the final. Even she awes at her luck. Make no mistake, Pliskova deserves this final as much as any sincere professional. But the odds favour the top seed and the World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty to win the game in a maximum of three sets.
