Elina Svitolina vs Caroline Wozniacki – match predictions

Elina Svitolina to win

Caroline Wozniacki had a tough time taming Elina Svitolina when she was ruling the roost in the tennis world. She had a 4-1 losing record against her and it looks unlikely she can get a win against the impressive Ukrainian. Svitolina can be erratic in her outings but after following the Washington Open quarter-final placement following her Wimbledon semi-finals appearance, she should not have much trouble in making little work of her Danish rival.

2-0 to Elina Svitolina

Two of Svitolina’s four wins against Wozniacki have come in straight sets. With the Ukrainian in impressive form and Wozniacki returning after a three-year hiatus, we believe Svitolina will easily overcome her and the duel will not go the distance. Based on this, we are backing a 2-0 victory for Svitolina, as was the case in her victories over Daria Kasatkina and Victoria Azarenka.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Cincinnati Open.

Elina Svitolina

All eyes were on Elina Svitolina, who captured the imagination of fans with her run to the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Championships. Eventual champion Marketa Vondrousova would end her ambitions and it has not been the perfect ride for her since. She reached the quarter-finals of the Washington Open but then was knocked out in the first round by Danielle Collins in the Canadian Open first round. She now has to break Wozniacki’s heart in Cincinnati and will feel confident in her abilities given her record against her.

Caroline Wozniacki

Despite being unranked and out of action for three years, Wozniacki showcased against Kimberly Birrell why she had the WTA number 1 ranking. It was a swift victory for the wild cart entrant, who outclassed her rival 6-2 and 6-2. However, her next battle was against the reigning Wimbledon champions, Vondrousova, who claimed an easy straight-sets victory against her. She has a lot to prove at the Western & Southern Open and will need to get started on the right foot with the world’s gaze set on her exploits.

Elina Svitolina vs Caroline Wozniacki head to head

Elina Svitolina and Caroline Wozniacki have met five times on the WTA tour, the Ukrainian ace claiming a 4-1 record. The Dane has struggled against Svitolina in the past and it will be interesting if she can beat her ho-do against her after a three-year layoff.
