At the start of the 2020 season, Williams performs in Auckland. In the quarter finals on January 10, Serena will play against Laura Siegemund. We offer a forecast for the match with the participation of the former first racket of the world.
The last title from Serena Williams dates back to 2017, when he managed to take the trophy at the Australian Open. After that success, there were five lost finals. Obviously, before the start in Melbourne, Serena needs a trophy in order to overcome a kind of psychological barrier, to feel self-confidence. In this regard, the tournament in Auckland is important for the American.
In the tournament bracket in Auckland, Williams first defeated Georgie (6-3, 6-2), and then defeated compatriot McHale (3-6, 6-2, 6-3). Two matches made it possible to feel the court and break out.
Laura Siegemund in Auckland for the first time in her career was able to reach the quarterfinals. Before this, I have never overcome the barrier of the first circle of the main grid here.
In rivals, Siegemund had young representatives of the USA – McNally (6-2, 6-2) and Gauff (5-7, 6-2, 6-3). Now a much more experienced rival with Laura. Back in 2016, at a tournament in Indian Wells, Siegemund could not do anything in the game against Serena (2-6, 1-6).
Statistics and personal meetings
- Williams won the only personal meeting in 2016.
