Serena Williams will win

Elina Svitolina – Serena Williams Match Prediction | 05-09-2019 11:00

This was evident at Wimbledon where she was outclassed by Simona Halep. On the other side of the coin, Serena Williams was dominant as she defeated Wang Qiang in straight sets. Over the past 12 months, Serena Williams has continued her dominance over mid-ranked players but she has struggled against the elite. It was an emphatic performance by Serena as she only lost 1 game in the entire match.

Svitolina also leads the head to head record 2-1 against Venus. She lost her first meeting with Venus in 2017- Rome but bounced back to win two matches in a row in 2017- Rogers Cup and the 2019- French Open. Svitolina's biggest plus point is her flexibility as she can change gears from offence to defence or vice-versa as per the match's situation.

BIG 4 H2H

Halep is more experienced at the latter stages of Majors. Harsh:Svitolina leads 4-2 in the head-to-head against Halep ,but this is the first time shes reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam.

Halep, however, is playing some of the best grass-court tennis of her career. Jim:Svitolinas path through to the last four, her first semifinal at a Major, has been a strange one. She hasnt entirely convinced but has found a way to keep winning.

(Along with Serena, obviously.) Halep struggled a bit herself in her quarterfinal match, but that was far more a matchup issue than a form one. Neither of those are good signs coming into a match against Simona Halep, one of the most powerful women left in the tournament. Yesh:Svitolina looked very shaky at the end of her match against Karolina Muchova, and she was beaten by the young Czechs power early on.

Of course she is well known when it comes to changing the momentum and cracking other players game, but I tend to favour Elina to win because of her coverage of the entire court. As to Simona, I kind of doubt her winning the match to Elina. I agree wih you that Serena is about to win the match against Barbora. Her run to the semis is just as impressive as the run of Simona, I expect three long sets and Elina to win.

That includes winning both of their previous grand slam meetings. While Serena Williams has been playing some excellent stuff so far, Svitolina has also been playing great tennis too. Elina Svitolina has, however, played her best tennis against Serena on this surface, which includes winning their most recent meeting, while she took their previous hard court grand slam meeting to a final set. This should be the toughest match either one has faced so far at this tournament, and we could have an epic on our hands. However, Serena has dominated this matchup over the years, and she leads Svitolina 4-1.

The Ukrainian ace has also looked great so far at the tournament, and she hasnt actually dropped a set as of yet. The WTA Finals champ has actually won 14 of her last 18 matches, while her last 9 matches have been decided in straight-sets. Svitolina has recorded a string of successive straight-set victories over Whitney Osuigwe, Venus Williams, Dayana Yastremska, Madison Keys and Johanna Konta. Meanwhile, Elina Svitolina is into a second successive grand slam semi-final, following her run to this stage at Wimbledon earlier in the summer.
