Match: Laura Robson – Angelique Kerber Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Monday, 27 June, 2016
Start time: 14:00 UK
Laura Robson from the United Kingdom will play against world number 3 Angelique Kerber in his home tournament from Grand Slam – Wimbledon.
Robson, 22 years old, is on 294th position in the world. She starts the season of grass in Eastbourne on 30 May but lost in the 1st round from Daniela Hantuchova 6-3, 3-6, 1-6. Robson also lost in 1st round in Nottingham against Michelle Larcher De Brito 3-6, 5-7, but reached the second round in Birmingham. There she losses from Katerina Siniakova in 2 sets (1-6, 3-6). This year Britain has almost no more serious successes. She lost almost all tournaments on clay in the first round, and the presentation and hardwood flooring also were not good.
Angelique Kerber won Australian Open but then followed by a slight decline in her game. At the end of April Kerber won Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart on clay. On his way to the trophy she consistently beat Annika Beck, Carla Suarez Navarro, Petra Kvitova and Laura Siegemund. After this success, however, Angelique losses in three consecutive tournaments in the first round including Roland Garros, where it was eliminated from Kiki Bertens 2-6, 6-3, 3-6. On grass Kerber play in Birmingham, where reached the quarter-finals, but lost against Carla Suarez Navarro 4-6, 6-1, 5-7.
Angelique Kerber has two wins over Robson as Britain won once against this opponent. The success of Laura, however, was on grass and at Wimbledon – in 2011. But then the form of Robson dropped and is now unlikely she will be able to win, but definitely can win at least a set against faltering German.
