The current WTA No. 1 claimed her maiden Grand Slam title at Roland Garros last month, becoming the first Australian to win the French Open since 1973. Barty has already converted her scintillating form to the grass court and enters this match on the back of 13 consecutive wins across all tournaments.
The former Junior Wimbledon champion dispatched Zheng in the opening round, which also hit under 18.5 match games, and we expect a similar result over van Uytvanck.
A sizzling second round encounter between the Mallorcan matador and the mercurial Australian talent certainly whets the appetite following their recent war of words.
Kyrgios, unseeded at SW19 for the first time since 2015, previously conquered Nadal in the fourth round of Wimbledon in 2014 and will definitely back his ability to stay competitive against the Spaniard by taking an early set. The pair clashed earlier this year at the Mexico Open and there will certainly be no love lost as Kyrgios attempts to stage another memorable upset.
However, Nadal is tipped to progress through this potentially hostile clash on centre court.
The American is playing some of the best tennis of his career. He reached the final in Eastbourne last week and continued his fine form by beating fifth seed and French Open runner-up Dominic Thiem in the first round.
Querrey dropped the opening set before claiming the next three and won the final nine games of the match. We are tipping up a straight sets victory here for the former Wimbledon semi-finalist.
Pick: Querrey to win 3-0 – 5/4
- Barty v Van Uytanck: Under 18.5 total match games – 4/5
- Kyrgios v Nadal: Nadal to win and both players to win a set – 6/5
- Querrey v Rublev: Querrey to win 3-0 – 5/4
