THE LOWDOWN

AMANDA ANISIMOVA

World number 25 Amanda Anisimova enjoyed one of the most important results of her career with a comeback victory over fellow-American Coco Gauff on Saturday. The 20-year-old is through to the round of 16 at a Grand Slam for the third-successive time after exits to Ash Barty at the Australian Open and Leylah Fernandez at Roland-Garros. Anisimova’s best run at a major came in Paris back in 2019, where she burst onto the scene by reaching the semi-finals before defeat to the aforementioned eventual champion Ash Barty.

HARMONY TAN

World number 115 Harmony Tan’s dream run continued at Wimbledon with an assured victory over Katie Boulter in less than an hour on Saturday. The 24-year-old stunned Serena Williams in the first round over three thrilling sets but she has perhaps more impressively backed that up with some superb tennis on what is the deepest run of her career anywhere. Tan looks set to suffer the lack of ranking points at Wimbledon more than most as her career-high WTA world ranking of 90th would have been blown to smithereens this fortnight.

THE PREDICTION

This is a really intriguing match-up between the powerful, precise ball-striking of Amanda Anisimova and Harmony Tan’s sudden mastery of the dark arts on court. The Frenchwoman has so far enjoyed outwitting powerful players’ lack of movement in the likes of 40-year-old Serena Williams and Katie Boulter but whilst that is not Anisimova’s notable strength the 20-year-old should have enough experience to play the player and not the occasion. Underestimating Tan has not gone well for anyone yet but Anisimova beat a genuine title-contender in Coco Gauff. The American beat Tan during her huge run at Roland-Garros three years ago and she can be backed to come through once again.
