Kerber vs Mladenovic: prediction for the WTA Wimbledon match
Angelique Kerber managed to beat Kristina Mladenovic in four of six head-to-head matches. Will she secure another victory in the first round of Wimbledon tournament on June 27? The answer is in our prediction.
Kerber had a long slump, but managed to raise the level of performance during the clay part of the season. An experienced German player has won the title of Strasbourg tournament and reached the third round at Roland Garros.
Throughout her career, Angelique was always successful on the grass, winning 85 matches out of 116. Before the start of Wimbledon, Kerber participated at Bad Homburg tournament. She failed to retain the title, losing to Cornet in the quarter-final (4:6, 6:2, 6:1). However, Kerber managed to gain match practice and recorded confident victories over Bronzetti and Gasanova.
A former World No. 10 player is currently out of Top-100, she finds herself at the 118th spot in WTA rankings at the current moment. There is no signs of development in Mladenovic's performance. Her only success is the title of a low-prestigious Caserta tournament.
A transition to grass turned out to be unsuccessful for Kristina. She suffered first round defeats at Ilkley and Eastbourne tournaments, she was beaten by Miyazaki (7:6, 4:6, 4:6) and Flipkens (4:6, 4:6) respectively.

Kristina Mladenovic is currently going through a long crisis, so she is unable to find any success on WTA tournaments. Since the beginning of the season she won only one match outside of qualifying rounds. Kerber is a successful grass player, she gained some match practice at Bad Homburg. German player should be able to beat her French opponent.
