Siegemund vs Svitolina: what to expect from Elina at Tokyo?
After a wedding with Monfils Elina Svitolina will start the Tokyo Olympics with a match against Laura Siegemund on July 25. We are offering our prediction for the upcoming match.
In 2021 Laura Siegemund is not so successful on the singles tournaments. Since the start of the year German player won 14 matches and was defeated 13 times. On hard surface she reached the round of 16 in Melbourne and in Doha.
Siegemund played her most recent official match on Wimbledon. In the first round of that competition she was beaten by Alexandrova (1:6, 3;6). In Tokyo Germany representative already played the first match, on doubles with Friedsam. German pair was beaten by the Russian duo Kudermetova/Vesnina (2:6, 5:7).
After the Wimbledon Elina Svitolina made an important step in her life. Elina got married with Gael Monfils and took his surname, becoming Elina Monfils.
On the most recent tournaments Ukrainian player's results were not so impressive. On the grass Elina played on three competitions, winning only two matches. She played her most recent official match on the Wimbledon, where she was beaten in the second round by Magda Linette (4:6, 3:6).
In four out of last five Siegemund's matches a total of the first set was not higher than nine games
In two out of four Svitolina's most recent matches tiebreaks were played
Ukrainian player was not looking great on the recent tournaments. Her preparation for the Olympic tournament was interrupted by the wedding. We are not expecting an easy victory from Elina in the upcoming match. Especially since her opponent is able to pull off an upset, plus she got a match practice in Tokyo on the doubles. We offer to place a bet on the underdog.
Our prediction - Siegemund to win with a handicap of (+6) games
Prediction: Handicap (+6) for Siegemund
