Elina Svitolina v Marketa Vondrousova Head to Head
The two ladies have met twice on the tour and in both the cases, Svitolina was victorious. They last met in the 2018 WTA Stuttgart, where the Ukranian won in three sets.
Vondrousova Delivers a Massive Upset
A common theme in this year’s Indian Wells has been the rise of young stars. In the top half of the bracket, we saw Belinda Bencic knock out the No. 1 seed Naomi Osaka. In the bottom half, Bianca Andreescu continued her phenomenal rise as she reached the quarterfinal once again this season.
In a scenario such as this one, it comes as no surprise to the 19-year-old Marketa Vondrousova rise to the occasion and stake her claim as a rising force on the tour.
The young Czech has delivered a string of seeded defeats in Indian Wells, starting with the number 14 seed Daria Kasatkina, then Jelena Ostapenko and most recently – the biggest win of her career – Simona Halep.
Vondrousova’s match against Halep was truly remarkable as she just took an hour and 40 minutes to knock out the World No. 2. She won the match 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, winning eight break points in the process.
A couple of weeks back, she was also the runner-up in WTA Budapest, losing to Alison Van Uytvanck in the final.
Svitolina Continues to be Efficient
Even though the Ukranian hasn’t won a trophy this season yet, she continues to be highly consistent on the tour. In the five tournaments that she has played in so far, including the Indian Wells, she has made it to the quarterfinal four times.
In fact, in Doha and Dubai – her last couple of events, she made it as far as the semis.
Svitolina has been quite impressive throughout this tournament – a feat that is not surprising at all. However, she was troubled by the likes of Sofia Kenin and Ashleigh Barty but it was nothing that the Ukranian couldn’t deal with. Those were three-setters where her experience came in handy as she sailed to hard-fought victories at the end of the day.
Elina Svitolina v Marketa Vondrousova Predictions & Tips
Svitolina will start as the favourite on paper owing to her experience and recent form. However, given Vondrousova’s clinical run in Indian Wells, Svitolina can very well be defeated here. This is, in all likelihood, a major test for the Ukranian and a chance for the Czech to rise to the top.
Tip: : Over 2 sets in the match: 6/4 (Bet365)
