Svitolina 1.54, Konta 2.82
Elina Svitolina has won all 4 of their previous matches. The last time they played was In Canada in August 2018. She won on a hard court in straight sets. All of their matches were on hard courts. Two of them went to 3 sets.
Overall results favour Johanna Konta in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Their hard court results favour Svitolina.
Svitolina has not lost a set so far. She has beaten Keys, Yastremska and Venus Williams. The win over Keys in the last round was particularly impressive given the American’s recent form.
It was an excellent win for Konta over Pliskova in the last round. She took an immediate lead in the opening set and wasn’t broken until she served for the set. She ended up losing the set in a one sided tie break. She then went a break down at the start of set 2 but then started her fight back. The only other set she has lost in the tournament was against Darya Kasatkina in the 1st round.
Stats for the tournament are extremely close. Both players have served really well. We have a very good chance of seeing 3 sets. Back Svitolina after she gets broken or loses the first set. It is worth laying the set 1 winner regardless of who takes it.
Update: Svitolina won 6-4, 6-4.
