Katie Boulter is riding high in the rankings and enjoying a great year, which saw her win a first WTA title. The real grind comes now, as she strives to get inside the top 50 and into the world’s biggest tournaments.
She is ranked slightly higher than Magdalena Frech, who also came through qualies.
Playing Styles & Prediction
Boulter coasted through qualification to earn a spot n the main draw, where she faces fellow qualifier, Frech. The Pole benefited from a walkover in her second qualifying match. Frech also had a solid grass court season with quarter-finals in Nottingham (won by Boulter) and Birmingham but has been toiling through the hard court season.
Boulter has had it tough out in China. She was on the losing end of a bruising match in Ningbo against Vera Zvonareva losing the third set tie-break after three hours, 11 minutes but has bounced back well.
While Frech leads their head-to-head, this was back in the ITF levels and a lot has changed for both players since then. There is not much between them in the rankings and Boulter might find herself the slightly sharper of the two.
