Kvitova leads their previous matches 2-1. Their last one was in Dubai in February last year. She won in 3 sets on a hard court. All their matches were on hard courts.
The last time Svitolina played Serena which was in May she won just 2 games. I don’t why I am surprised at another strange result this week but Svitolina beat her this time in straight sets. Her first win over the American.
Kvitova lost the opening set to Makarova in the last round and I think this will be a similar match.
Back Kvitova if she goes a break behind. She has a great chance to take the gold if she can keep her head.
We will see some big hitting in this one. .
