Svitolina 1.95, Garcia 2.02
Head to heads are 1-1. They last met in Beijing 3 weeks ago. Garcia won their semi final in a third set tie break before going on to win the title. Svitolina won on a hard court in Cincinnati in 2015. She won in straight sets,
Garcia played well in her last match but Halep was just too good. She kept the opening set very close but Halep raised her level even more in the second set and ran away with it.
Svitolina was very poor in her match. Wozniacki played well but Svitolina had very little fight. Even her coach seemed clueless when he came to talk to her.
Stats for the year favour Svitolina but recent form is much better from Garcia. She has won her last 2 tournaments. I will have part stake on Garcia at the start and I will add the rest if she gets broken first.
