Williams vs Tomljanovic betting preview

serena william

In this tournament, Queen Serena is still alive.

Serena Williams’ fame rose with her three-set victory over Anett Kontaveit, with the fans on her side and Tiger Woods screaming from her box.

Williams used a combination of experience, gamesmanship, and strong serving to defeat the feisty, big-hitting Estonian, 7-6, 2-6, 6-2, and set up a third-round match against Australian Ajla Tomljanovic.

Tomljanovic battled Evgeniya Rodina in three sets, but the Australian hung tough when it mattered most and now has the daunting task of facing Serena Williams in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The objective for Williams will be to command play with her monster first serve, take advantage of the crowd, and avoid protracted rallies with the big-hitting Tomljanovic.

Williams used a combination of experience, gamesmanship, and strong serving to defeat the feisty, big-hitting Estonian, 7-6, 2-6, 6-2, and set up a third-round match against Australian Ajla Tomljanovic.

To win this match, Tomljanovic will need to block out the crowd, win a high proportion of second serves, and force Williams to play a lot of balls on Friday night.

Moneyline prediction on Williams

Tomljanovic will have a tough night at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Serena did three things in her second-round match that demonstrated why she is the greatest of all time.

Midway through the second set, Williams began chirping at the chair, which enraged the audience, who got increasingly vociferous in their support for her opponent.

Serena took an extended toilet break after dropping the second set in the hopes of shifting Kontaveit’s momentum. Needless to say, it was successful.

While serving early in the third set, Kontaveit was clearly frightened by the crowd’s relentless taunting. Serena Williams rolled to a three-set victory by waving her finger in the Dikembe Mutumbo fashion.

Ajla Tomjanovic is a powerful Australian with a powerful serve. She qualified for both Toronto and Cincinnati this summer, and she is coming off a three-set match in which she was broken seven times and earned only 44% of her second serve points.

That’s not going to cut it against Queen Serena on Friday night.

On Wednesday night, Williams did not dominate the contest. The 6-2 result in the third set may appear overwhelming, but Serena only earned one point more than her opponent (100-99).

Serena won because she played well in the important points, and I anticipate her to do the same in Round 3. Williams will have the support of a large crowd on Friday night, and she will rely on their enthusiasm to continue her great run.

This season, Tomljanovic is prone to errors, has a wobbly serve, and has a 64% service hold percentage on hard courts. Her 35% break of serve rate is respectable, but not impressive enough to compensate for her blunders and service issues against a legend like Serena Williams.

Tomljanovic is known for her go-big-or-go-home style of play, but that won’t cut it against one of the greatest rivals tennis has ever seen on Friday night.
