Maria Osorio Serrano Form


Maria Camila Osorio Serrano was a junior US Open champion in 2019; by the end of that season she had already broken into the top 200.

The diminutive Colombian won her maiden WTA Tour title on home soil in Bogota in April as a wildcard, beating Tereza Martincova and Tamara Zidansek on the way. Since then, she has gone from strength to strength, making WTA Tour semifinals on clay in Charleston and Belgrade before qualifying for the main draw of the French Open.

Osorio Serrano had never played a match on grass before this year, but she is certainly finding her feet quickly. She went the distance in her first four matches at Wimbledon, playing her way through qualifying and into the second round, where she beat 32nd seed Ekaterina Alexandrova 7-5, 6-2.

Aryna Sabalenka Form


Aryna Sabalenka has reached the third round of Wimbledon for the first time, but it was not easy.

The Belarusian notoriously under-performs at Grand Slams, and she struggled against an inspired Katie Boulter on Centre Court on Wednesday. After Boulter took the first set, Sabalenka levelled and broke early in the decider, but she had to win a series of epic service holds in order to get the 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory.

Sabalenka hit 30 unforced errors to 27 winners in that win, and Boulter was in some ways an easier opponent for her than someone like Osorio Serrano, who will force her to hit a lot of balls.

Verdict

Osorio Serrano lacks grass-court experience but she is a talented young player with nothing to lose. This is a golden opportunity for Sabalenka to make the second week at Wimbledon and the nervy Belarusian is unlikely to manage it without having to battle herself as well as her opponent.
