Eugenie Bouchard vs Ying-Ying Duan, Wimbledon R1 Preview

(12) Eugenie Bouchard vs (Q) Ying-Ying Duan

Eugenie Bouchard enters Wimbledon 2015 under an extreme amount of pressure. The Canadian has a large chunk of her points to defend over the next fortnight after the reaching the final in London last year. Furthermore, Bouchard enters the tournament totally deprived of confidence after a horror run of losses.

Eugenie Bouchard has lost 11 of her last 13 matches, including a first round exit at Roland Garros. As a result, the Canadianโ€™s ranking has slipped outside the top 10. Bouchard will need a dramatic reversal of form if she is to avoid another big slip down the rankings.

Bouchard has looked slightly better in the last couple of weeks, however she has still been unable to gain any momentum. The Canadian suffered opening round losses in s-Hertogenbosch and Birmingham. Genie did pick up a good win in Eastbourne, defeating Alison Riske in straight sets, however she was forced to retire during her next match with Belinda Bencic because of an abdominal injury.

 

Ying-Ying Duan will be competing in her first Wimbledon main draw in 2015. The 25-year-old was forced to come through qualifying, she did so in style, winning all three of her matches in straight sets. Ying-Ying Duanโ€™s game was famously compared to Lindsay Davenportโ€™s during her 2013 US Open match against Caroline Wozniacki, she was then nicknamed, โ€˜Chinese Davenport.โ€™

Ying-Ying Duan has never won a Grand Slam main draw match, despite Bouchardโ€™s recent woes, that is highly unlikely to change here. Bouchard may take a little while to get going, she may be a little nervy closing it out, but ultimately she should definitely progress to the second round.

Prediction: Eugenie Bouchard to defeat Ying-Ying Duan in 2 sets
