For the third time in the season Elina Svitolina was able to win two matches in one tournament. Before Monterrey, the Ukrainian tennis player achieved such a result on Australian Oupen and at the competitions in Hua Hin. However, Elina did not win more than two matches in tournaments in 2020.
The tournament grid on the way to the quarterfinals in Monterrey was not the most difficult for Elina. Danka Kovinic and Olga Govortsova are not currently showing the game at the top 100 level. The Ukrainian coped with them without giving up sets.
Elina had always surprised before with her incredible mood for matches and full concentration. Now there is nothing of the sort even close, and the tennis player herself does not hide that her personal life has come to the fore. The representative of Ukraine has worked hard on her weight for many years and tried to be very thin to move easily on the court. This year she has recovered considerably and has become much slower. The season is not yet a failure, but so far everything is going to it.
Leylah Annie Fernandez
In our predictions for matches of the Mexican tournament, we noted the talented Canadian tennis player Leilah Fernandez. 17-year-old Leylah did not stop after the final last week in Acapulco.
In Monterrey, Fernandez won two games, first defeating Voegele (7-6, 6-2) and then Stephens (6-7, 6-3, 6-3). The young tennis player did not fall behind. There was an extra day of rest before the game with Elina.
There are more and more young and promising players in the tour, who suddenly start competing at a high level already at a young age. A striking example is Fernandez, because the girl has only recently turned 17, and she already has experience of playing in the final stages of WTA tournaments. In addition, the Canadian is rapidly moving towards her debut in the top 100. On the court Leylah acts with her head, because although she always tries to sharpen and dictate her rules, she never takes unreasonable risks, so she rarely makes mistakes.
Svitolina vs Fernandez Predictions
Of course, Fernandez isn’t an easy rival. But here we must take into account that Svitolina is gradually, but still getting in shape, in addition to the fact that the Canadian has already played many consecutive games and fatigue has clearly accumulated. The match will definitely be tenacious, but the winner will be Elina Svitolina, who runs over and shoots at the back of the Fernandez line.
- Our prediction: Elina Svitolina will win.
