Karolina Muchova vs Johanna Konta: Match Preview
Karolina Muchova began the season by reaching the Australian Open semi-finals. Several opponents, including world number one Ash Barty, were disturbed by his aggressiveness and ability to hit those soft strokes. Her journey in the Australian Open ended in the semi-finals, as she was defeated by Jennifer Brady. At 2021 Mutua Madrid Open, she even defeated the former world number 1 Naomi Osaka as a result, she reached a new career rankings of 19.
Johanna Konta was forced to withdraw from her first-round match against Kaja Juvan at the Australian Open in early 2021 because to an abdominal ailment. At the Nottingham Open on grass, Konta won her first championship in four years, defeating Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove, Kateryna Kozlova, Alison van Uytvanck, and Nina Stojanovic en route to the final, where she defeated Zhang Shuai 6-2 6-1 in under an hour.

Karolina Muchova vs Johanna Konta: Match Prediction
Muchová is a tenacious all-court player with a versatile and clever game. She has a powerful serve, with her first serve reaching 110 mph and average 103 mph, allowing her to serve aces regularly; she also has a second serve with a high degree of topspin despite averaging 83 mph.
Konta’s game is built around attacking baseline play and quick, flat ground strokes. Konta is recognised for her ability to strike wins from any location on the court by establishing acute angles. Konta has had a difficult time recovering from her injuries and hasn’t had a great recovery. Muchova, on the other hand, appears composed and serene as she has already two big players Barty and Osaka this season.
Our predictions: Muchova to win in two sets.
