The women's draw of the Roland Garros 2021 will be able to count on the presence of nine of the top ten players in the world. Absent Simona Halep, forced to forfeit due to a tear in the calf, identifying a favorite, especially in the women's draw, is always quite complicated.
We know that Ashleigh Barty will see her in the first round with Bernarda Pera and that she could find Magda Linette right after. The problems could arise in the fourth round with Coco Gauff, fresh from the success in Parma among other thing, and presumably in the quarter-finals with one between Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskova in the quarterfinals.
In the second quarter of the draw the finalist of the last edition, there is Sofia Kenin, who since last October has collected seven wins and eight defeats. The challenge with 2017 champion Jelena Ostapenko is indecipherable, who had to wait until 2020 to return to win a handful of matches at the Roland Garros.
Serena Williams will still go on the hunt for the twenty-fourth pearl Slam in her career. Insidious the first round with Irina Begu and possibly the third with Angelique Kerber. In theory, the US champion could find Petra Kvitova in the second round.
The most popular in the quarters could instead be Aryna Sabalenka and Viktoria Azarenka. Instead, Martina Trevisan falls in the final part of the scoreboard, who has practically stopped winning from the quarters reached during the last edition.
Complicated the first round with Alyson Van Uytvanck. In the same portion also Bianca Andreescu and Belinda Bencic. Obviously, Naomi Osaka closes the draw, who with the bowls completely stopped (despite the problems on clay-courts) could begin to have problems in the round of 16 with Kiki Bertens.
Roger Federer and Serena Williams will play Wimbledon 2021
Compared to previous years, the pandemic has brought about several changes, tennis players will not be able to rent the typical private houses near the tournament, but they will all have to stay in the official hotel.
The Entry List of Wimbledon 2021 includes all the top 10 in the world with Roger Federer starting from number 8, just ahead of the blue tennis player Matteo Berrettini. To decipher the situation relating to the top positions with Novak Djokovic currently ahead of the Russian Daniil Medvedev and with the king of clay and twenty-time Grand Slam title winner Rafael Nadal in third position.
In the male Entry List, made up of 104 athletes, there are 9 Italians. Guide Matteo Berrettini to number 9, immediately followed by the young blue talent Jannik Sinner who will be seeded and who for the first time will tread the green fields of Wimbledon.
Then there are Lorenzo Sonego and Fabio Fognini, Stefano Travaglia, Salvatore Caruso, Gianluca Mager, Lorenzo Musetti and Andreas Seppi complete the list. In the women's draw stands out the presence of Serena Williams, among the favorites and with all the fans curious to understand if the American will win the 24th career Grand Slam title, thus reaching the record of Billie Jean King.
In addition also Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka and Simona Halep, pay attention on this surface also to Aryna Sabalenka, Karolina Pliskova and the American Jennifer Brady. The clay court season is not over and we could say that its main tournament is missing, which will start next week but the men's and women's Entry List of the 2021 edition of the Wimbledon tournament, the third Slam of the year, has been published in the last few hours.
. There is great anticipation for this tournament, especially this year, given that last year Wimbledon was canceled due to the Pandemic and also because this could be the last time to see Roger Federer at work at Wimbledon.
The Swiss tennis player, on the threshold of 40 years, dreams of the great enterprise, but with the passing of months (and years) this appears increasingly difficult. Compared to Roland Garros it seems that everyone will be there at Wimbledon and we will see the return to the circuit of both Nick Kyrgios (absent in Paris) and the Swiss Stan Wawrinka.
