Storm Hunter vs Elina Svitolina – Match Predictions
With both players eyeing a round of 32 spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Elina Svitolina to Win in Three Sets
It’s important to point out that Elina Svitolina is starting to find her stride since she returned to the WTA Tour a couple of months ago; she won the Strasbourg Open title last weekend, and is currently on a six-match winning streak, surrendering just one set in the process.
Interestingly, Storm Hunter is coming into this match with a lot of confidence; including the qualifying rounds, she has won four singles matches in a row, with three of those coming in straight sets. As a matter of fact, Hunter has won 11 consecutive matches across singles and doubles, winning two doubles titles in the process. Although we expect this to be business as usual for Elina Svitolina, we believe that Hunter will do just enough to take a set.
Over 20.5 Total Games
We’ve already established that we expect this match to end in maximum sets. It’s fair to note that this match could end in two sets, and still go comfortably over 20.5 games. These are two players who have enjoyed some fine form lately, so we don’t think this will be a one-sided contest. Bearing that in mind, we are taking the over 20.5 games option.
Storm Hunter vs Elina Svitolina Preview
How have these players fared in recent weeks? Let’s take a look.
Storm Hunter faced a tricky first round opponent in Nuria Parrizas-Diaz, as she had to come from behind to defeat the Spaniard after losing the first set. With that victory, the Australian player extended her winning run to four matches. Compared to the opponents she has faced in that stretch, Elina Svitolina will be a relatively tougher nut to crack. Can she pull off a major upset today?
Elina Svitolina followed up her Strasbourg Open triumph last weekend with a flawless performance against Martina Trevisan in the first round of this tournament; she knocked out the Italian in two short sets, surrendering just four games in the process. Svitolina will look to extend her winning run to seven matches as she faces Storm Hunter.
Storm Hunter vs Elina Svitolina Head to Head
This will be the second clash between these two. Storm Hunter and Elina Svitolina previously met at the Hua Hin Open three years ago, and Svitolina came out on top in straight sets.
