Venus Williams vs Alison Van Uytvanck Prediction
Given Venus’ lack of match experience, Alison Van Uytvanck will go into the competition as the favourite. The American’s will to win and never-say-die mentality, though, might make things difficult for the Belgian.
Venus serves fairly well but frequently commits double errors. In her three matches so far this season, the 42-year-old has thrown up 28 of those, and she will attempt to reduce that number against Van Uytvanck.
Venus will need to exert pressure on her opponent and be aggressive while avoiding making too many unforced errors.
Van Uytvanck plays well from the baseline and will be ready to use her slices and drop shots to break up her opponent’s flow. Despite being the favourite, the Belgian cannot afford to make too many mistakes while up against someone with Venus’ experience.
Three sets may be necessary to decide the match. Venus may be the underdog, but the support of the home fans could help the former champion pull off her first victory of the year.
Prediction: Williams will triumph in three sets.
