Jessica Pegula v Donna Vekic Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between Pegula and Vekic before this opening round encounter.
Pegula’s Never Gone Beyond Round Two
Having made her first visit to Wimbledon in 2013, Pegula’s best showing at this prestigious competition came in the 2021 edition when she won her first ever main draw match here.
An easy win over Caroline Garcia in her opener last season here was followed by a three-set loss at the hands of Luidmilla Samsonova in the second. This had come in what was her third tournament on grass for the season, having made the quarterfinal in Berlin and losing in the second round at Bad Homburg.
This year, Pegula hasn’t played a single tournament on grass which could also play a part in the way she goes in these early stages at Wimbledon.
Confidence-wise, Pegula has nowhere else to look but her own performance from the last tournament she featured in – at the French Open. She had made it to the last eight stage there, her joint-best showing in a Grand Slam.
Can the American now kick on from there to post a solid showing at Wimbledon?
Vekic Showing Signs of Improvement
It wasn’t the strongest of starts to the season for Vekic, but over the last few months she has shown signs of her former self which had seen her climb to 19th in the world.
At the French Open, Vekic made it to the second round as a qualifier having earlier been a quarterfinalist at the WTA Paris.
And more recently with women’s tennis welcoming the start of the five-week long grass court swing, Vekic featured in three such tournaments, winning and losing three matches.
She started off with a first round loss at Nottingham, made the quarterfinal in Birmingham and then defeated Dayana Yastremska in the opener in Eastbourne before falling to Petra Kvitova.
Vekic has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon as her best showing here but starts off an underdog in this year’s competition. Can she put up a fight?
Pegula v Vekic Prediction and Tip
This might not be the most straightforward of encounters for Pegula, who has had her struggles as she goes up against a player who has had a good time on grass in her career. We could see an upset here.
