Wimbledon Day 6 Women’s Predictions Including Swiatek vs Cornet

Day 6 at Wimbledon will see the conclusion of the third round, as players hope to advance to the second week. As always, we here at LWOT will share our thoughts on all eight matches with you. We split the matches of the day between this and another article. Predicting Saturday’s games are Jakub Bobro, Andy Watson and Fraser Learmonth. Who do you think they can win?

Wimbledon Day 6 Women’s Predictions

Jessica Pegula vs. Petra Martic

Jacob:
Pegula is already having her best result at Wimbledon, earning wins over tough opponents like Donna Vekic and Harriet Dart. Martic dominates heads-up play 4-1 over the American and has reached the second week here twice before. It’s a close call, but I’ll go with the experienced Croat here.
Prediction: Martic at 3

Andy:
Pegula had a tough test against Dart in the last round and came out on top to find his game very well. Martic is an experienced player with a good game on grass, so this is probably another step forward, but one that Pegula can take.
Prediction: Pegula in 3

phrase:
Martic continues her resurgence in 2022 with a third-round appearance at Wimbledon. The Croatian faces a difficult question here in Pegula, who has been one of the best players on the WTA this year. However, Martic has a great game on grass courts and I like her chances to pull off an upset on this one.
Prediction: Martic at 3

Paula Badosa vs. Petra Kvitova

Jacob:
Probably the game of the day for me. Badosa lost only eight games in her first two matches against Louisa Chirico and Irina Bara. Kvitova is looking to reach the fourth round for only the second time since her last Wimbledon title in 2014. I expect a close encounter with the Spaniard emerging victorious.
Prediction: Badosa in 3

Andy:
One of the matches of the day. Badosa has had the opportunity to adapt to grass after two easy games, but it won’t be easy. Kvitova played like a dream for most of his match against Bogdan until the winning post came up. Ultimately, this is probably why he won’t win it all, but I think the Czech has the game, the form and the focus to beat Badosa.
Prediction: Kvitova in 2

phrase:
Kvitova continues her quest for a third Wimbledon title against Badosa in this match. The Spaniard has not been able to replicate her form from last year and this is certainly not her favorite surface. She back left to go forward.
Prediction: Kvitova in 3

harmony tan vs katie boulter

Jacob:
Harmony Tan eliminated Serena Williams in a three-hour battle, was criticized by the potential doubles partner for retiring, and came back to beat Sara Sorribes Tormo. Boulter eliminated last year’s finalist Karolina Pliskova in an emotional victory dedicated to her grandmother, who recently passed away. They are certainly happy to see each other at the net considering this point in the competition, but I expect the Briton to win quite easily here.
Prediction: Boulter at 2

Andy:
It might make me eat my words, but I think Tan has been pretty lucky with the opponents she’s faced. An exhausted Williams, although it took guts to get over that, and an overly happy Sara Sorribes Tormo. At Boulter, the Frenchwoman will have to contend with a confident Brit, who will gain the support of the crowd and familiarize herself with the pitches. Also, Boulter is a very powerful player who can push Tan out of her comfort zone.
Prediction: Boulter at 2

phrase:
Tan won’t make it easy for Boulter, but this is a game the Brit should win. He’ll have the crowd behind her and she’s probably the best player on grass. Tan’s ability to keep her nerve so far has been impressive, particularly beating Williams, but this is expected to be too much of a challenge for the French woman.
Prediction: Boulter at 3

Iga Swiatek vs. Alize Cornet

Jacob:
Swiatek extended her win streak to 37, but Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove certainly made her win that win, taking a set from the Pole. Cornet, in her first Wimbledon third round since 2016, will no doubt be heartened by that match and could smell some blood in the water. The experienced Frenchwoman knows how to fight and could make it difficult for Swiatek.
Prediction: Swiatek at 3

Andy:
The Pole has been less than impressive despite continuing the winning streak to 37. Cornet should be well prepared for this and has a history of causing upsets. I think he could do it again here and get rid of the heavy favourite.
Prediction: Bugle at 3

phrase:
Swiatek had a rare poor showing in her last round and dropped a set. However, the Pole found a way to win ugly once again and remains undefeated in 7 tournaments. That streak should continue here against Cornet, who is a quality player but not on the same level as the world number 1.
Prediction: Swiatek at 2
