Our favourite Elina Svitolina vs Jessica Pegula – match predictions

Svitolina has been showcasing aggressive play since her return from maternity. She goes head-to-head with Pegula, the late-blooming star who has been on an impressive run of form of late.

2-0 to Jessica Pegula @ 29/10 (3.90)

After her impressive 2-0 win over Anna-Lena Friedsam, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova gave Elina a tough time in the second-round encounter. The Ukrainian was fortunate to triumph in the deciding set but did show plenty of weaknesses for Pegula to profit from. The American ace has been in scintillating form, earning straight-set victories in each of her outings. She has yet to drop a set. Given Pegula’s superior form, we expect her to triumph 2-0 and book her passage to the next round.

Over 20.5 Games @ 27/25 (2.12)

Pegula and Svitolina met in the Citi Open quarter-finals where the former came from behind to force her path to the semi-finals. With a fatiguing second week of the US Open ahead, the American ace will not make the same mistakes and should finish this game early. In her prior two outings, she has only accrued 8 games thus far, with her fixtures concluding in 16 games. Given their respective knowledge about each other, Elina will push Jessica but not far enough. As a consequence, we anticipate this match finishing within 20.5 games.
