We’re down to just eight men and eight women remaining at Wimbledon, as the quarterfinals take centre stage for the coming days. We’ll look to get back on track after a poor few days of selections by delving into a match that features two shock quarterfinalists in Jule Niemeier and Tatjana Maria.

While not many would have predicted this matchup in the quarters, both do have a style that works well on the grass.

The veteran Maria has a strong first serve, decent forehand that plays well on the quick grass courts and a backhand slice that stays very low to the ground and is very tough to attack. That slice also helps mask some of her issues with moving around the court. It’s her one weakness on the surface, but because those slices remain so close to the ground, it’s hard for opponents to return them with any kind of pace, giving Maria more time to reach the ball and set up her next shot.

As for her younger compatriot, Niemeier’s game is more power-oriented. A strong first serve, the ability to flatten out both her forehand and backhand with pace and a very aggressive mindset are all rewarded on the quick courts at the All England Club.

Considering the players that Maria has taken down already in the last few rounds, she surely won’t be intimidated seeing Niemeier on the other side of the net.

This one has all the appearances of a close affair. With both possessing strong serves and neither being the most adept on return, I’m inclined to back the over games market in this one.

Moreover, with the weaknesses of each player being relatively similar and with neither really employing a style to be able to take advantage, we should see a relatively close affair and potentially a three-setter in this all-German matchup.

  • Selection: Over 21.5 games
