Matchup: Elina Svitolina v Ekaterina Alexandrova
Pick: 8* Ekaterina Alexandrova Moneyline
Alexandrova has lost narrowly in all three of their previous meetings, however playing on grass gives her a significant edge in this matchup.
Alexandrova’s flat ball striking is extremely effective in these conditions, she’s surface warm while Svitolina received a bye in the 1st round.
Svitolina isn’t a strong grass court player 17-17 for her career and those numbers are flattered by a semi-finals run in Wimbledon two seasons ago where the courts were baked from the warm weather and the ball was bouncing much higher than usual.
Their two meetings on hard court have been incredibly close, three tiebreakers required in the five sets played and Alexandrova actually created more break points across those two meetings.
Grass is Alexandrova’s strongest surface while Svitolina is lacking in rhythm after a mediocre clay court swing, fantastic price on the in-rhtyhm player in favorable conditions. Ekaterina Alexandrova Moneyline.
