Tomljanovic vs Koukalova by Umicuma
Czech veteran Koukalova should not be favorite here despite her opponent Croatian Tomljanovic is having maybe the weakest year so far. Koukalova played two tournaments on the grass (Eastbourne, Heterogenbosh) without bigger success and that can be tired for her before begin of Wimbledon. With 33 years she could have problem to face 11 years younger Tomljanovic especially if match went in third set. None of them are having good serve (backhand favorite) but Tomljanovic should have advantage because she is much taller (180 cm vs 166cm).Problem with Croatian player could be that she is mentally not strong, and can give up when she does not have a day, but with 22 years she should have her talent shown at big scene and now she have chance much better than 2013 and 2014 when had Watson and Jovanovski for opponent (even those to matches she had her chance to win). Koukalova has long career and she was able to beat some good players on the grass, (Hatuchova, Safarova, Cibulkova) in the past, but all of them were playing similar tennis style and she can have problem with young rival like Tomljanovic which is much more aggressive. If Tomljanovic manage to make first serve percentage at high level, and keep with short points, Koukalova will have hard time to face that kind of play. With physical constitution similar to Ana Ivanovic, Ajla can make few round at least this year in Wimbledon+
