Wimbledon Women’s Quarterfinal Predictions Including Anisimova vs Halep

The four women’s quarterfinals are set at Wimbledon. Manic Monday may be gone, but the final rounds of the tournament are still full of intrigue. Can anyone beat Simona Halep? Is Ons Jabeur ready to win a Major? As always, our writers share their thoughts on the quarterfinal matches. Predicting these matches are Jakub Bobro, Jack Edward and Jim Smith. Who do you think he will win?

Wimbledon Women’s Quarterfinal Predictions

Ons Jabeur vs. Marie Bouzkova

Jacob:
Jabeur made it through the first three rounds losing just 13 games, but faced a tougher opponent in her final match against Elise Mertens. The Belgian pushed her to the end, especially in the first set which the Tunisian won in a 13-11 tiebreak. Seeing Jabeur come up with a way to win that match in straight sets was very impressive.

Roadrunner Bouzkova has been impressive in every match, beginning with the upset of Danielle Collins and ending with the dismantling of Caroline Garcia. Jabeur will obviously provide a different ball that the Czech has yet to see before in this tournament, but he is confident and believes that he will go after her every time. Despite that, I see the third seed as the favourite, as her variety could make it difficult for Bouzkova to get up to speed.
Prediction: Jabeur at 2

James:
The worst is behind Ons Jabeur. She survived four set points in her first set against Elise Mertens, keeping her level fiercely high to get through a grueling two-set match. Marie Bouzkova is a decent player, but Jabeur has so many options compared to her previous opponents. It’s hard for me to imagine a reality where the fit player doesn’t take the opportunity of a lifetime to march to her first Wimbledon final.
Prediction: Jabeur at 2

James:
This is probably a tougher match for Jabeur than it looks on paper. Bouzkova tends to be quite a streaky player, but when she’s playing her best tennis, as she has so far at Wimbledon, the Czech is a tough opponent. Her coverage of her pitch is the best in the women’s game and she is not lacking in big match experience. She but she has much less than Jabeur and she has not yet faced a player of the quality of the Tunisian at Wimbledon. Expect Jabeur to prove too strong.

Tatjana Maria vs. Jule Niemeier

Jacob:
Who had this one on their stands? Although it may be surprising, I hope this dark German derby will deliver some strong tennis as both players have played amazing things during the Championship. Niemeier’s level to eliminate Anett Kontaveit was incredible to behold, as was Maria’s move against Jelena Ostapenko. It’s hard to decide, but I’ll lean towards Niemeier, as Maria’s intense running match against the Latvian probably cost her a lot physically.
Prediction: Niemeier in 3

James:
For those who closely follow Jule Niemeier’s career, this career may not have come as a surprise. The German hits the ball harder than the vast majority on tour, it’s just been a matter of putting it all together.

If there was anyone who could take down her game, Tatjana Maria might be the woman for the job. She has already unstuck Sakkari and Ostapenko with her wicked cuts that sit awfully low on this surface. I’m not underestimating Maria, but if Niemeier’s arrival is truly here and now, I think she has the game to pull through.
Prediction: Niemeier in 3

James:
A great opportunity for both. Who handles the pressure that comes with it will likely play a big role in who emerges victorious. Maria has the upper hand in terms of experience and has probably had to beat better players to get to this stage. Despite that, she hopes that Niemeier will emerge victorious. She has a higher level and in a match with such high stakes, her youth can be an advantage.

Elena Rybakina vs. Ajla Tomljanovic

Jacob:
Not much has been said about Rybakina, but the Kazakh has been incredibly solid in matchups, knocking out strong opponents like Bianca Andreescu, Petra Martic or Coco Vandeweghe without dropping a set. Tomljanovic has now reached back-to-back quarterfinals at Wimbledon, coming back from a set against Barbora Krejcikova and Alize Cornet in her last two matches. This is a close match but as Rybakina is more rested she has to be the favorite for me over the Aussie.
Prediction: Rybakina in 3

James:
It is no coincidence that Elena Rybakina reached the quarterfinals. She has always had the combination of serve and forehand to excel on any surface, but she has always had the potential to really break through on a grass court. Ajla Tomljanovic is a great striker with similar advantages to the Kazakh, but if they both entered the court at close to 100%, she would expect Rybakina to have a bit more firepower.
Prediction: Rybakina at 2

James:
Rybakina is likely to have a great Major run and, if Wimbledon didn’t seem like the most likely place for that to happen, it’s not exactly impossible to understand how the Kazakh has been successful on these courts either. Tomljanovic has also played very well to get to this stage, repeating her result from 2021, but she couldn’t go any further last year and this should be the end of the road for her again in 2022.
Prediction: Rybakina in 3

Amanda Anisimova vs. Simona Halep

Jacob:
Anisimova has seen some adversity in this streak, coming back from a set against Lauren Davis and Coco Gauff, but the young American has looked better in every match, most recently ending Harmony Tan’s fairy tale streak. he hasn’t dropped a set, he’s been an absolute machine at this year’s Wimbledon. The only time she looked a bit in danger was in the first set against Kirsten Flipkens, but the former No.1 ousted fourth seed Paula Badosa 6-1 6-2 in her previous match, showing just how good the match is. shape of her This matchup would suit Anisimova better on a different surface. As good as Halep has looked, the Romanian has to be considered a contender.
Prediction: Halep at 2

James:
This match dynamic depends on whether Anisimova appears or not. I was expecting her return to be a bit accelerated by her opponent’s serves on this surface, but she seems to be timing the ball well – Halep doesn’t have the world’s biggest serve either, so if the American is on fire things could get tough for her. both. -time Grand Slam champion. From what I’ve seen, I have no reason to believe Anisimova won’t be in full swing. Even for someone of Halep’s caliber, she’s shown of late that big hitters can get the best of her.
Prediction: Anisimova in 3

James:
Jabeur is probably the favourite, but maybe she shouldn’t be. Halep is, after all, the only player left in the draw who actually won Wimbledon. She also demolished Paula Badosa in straight sets to book her place in the quarterfinals. Anisimova has also had an excellent tournament, but if Halep maintains the level she showed against Badosa, she hopes she too has too much for the American.
Prediction: Halep at 2
