Kvitova leads their previous matches 3-1. Their last match was last month and she won in straight sets on a hard court. All their matches were on hard courts. Kvitova won their last 3.
Kvitova has won both her matches in straight sets but is still having a few problems on 2nd serve. She hit 8 double faults in her last match and won 48% of her 2nd serve points. She reached the quarter finals last year.
Svitolina has been the strong favourite in both her matches but needed 3 sets each time. She can wobble against the top players and the speed f these courts favour Kvitova.
If they both play their best tennis this will be a 3 setter but I am going with Kvitova. Back her if she is broken first
