I’m going to side with Kerber. Despite the even H2H record, I have always felt that this is a match-up that should favour Kerber. In a match-up that features two great defenders, it is Kerber who has the bigger weapons. The problem is that Kerber has a habit of playing poorly against Kasatkina. The conditions at Wimbledon suit Kerber, it is Kerber who has a better record on grass, in general her game is better suited to the conditions. Importantly, Kerber is more experienced, this is the biggest stage they have played on and that could be a factor.

Prediction: Angelique Kerber to defeat Daria Kasatkina in 2 sets
