Simona Halep also enters this match following a win as she defeated Bianca Andreescu in 3 sets in the opening round. It was a determined performance by Halep as she lost the opening set but fought back extremely strongly to win the final 2 sets and the match. The receiving was a big strength for Simona Halep as she won 44% of her return points which resulted in her winning 6 return games. The serving was poor from Halep as she only won 56% of her service games. Simona Halep must improve her serving if she wishes to compete with Elina Svitolina. 

Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina have played each other 7 times in the past. Svitolina has won on 4 occasions while Halep has won 3 times. The most recent match between these two players was at Wimbledon earlier in the season where Halep won in straight sets. 

Looking at all the information, I am going to pick Elina Svitolina to win this match. Halep has not been at her best since Wimbledon and I don’t see her having enough to compete with Svitolina. Elina Svitolina has shown more consistency in recent times and I see her being good enough to win this contest and secure a spot in the semifinals.
