Boulter is an aggressive baseliner and will be relying on her big first serve to get some free points. If she can combine it with her forehand, it is an effective one-two-punch combo, but of the forehand starts to go astray, there does not seem to be much of a plan B which could explain the lower break point conversion rate despite having been more successful on the grass this year.
What we will see is the pair battering the covers off the ball- and none more so that Sabalenka’s all or nothing aggressive style of play. Her serve is just as potent as Boulters, if not more so, but she also is not averse to coming to the net.
So why has it been so hard for her to make a Slam breakthrough, especially on a surface that should respond well to her style of play.
She bullied Monica Niculescu off the court, but Boulter should be able to make things trickier, matching her style.
