The Line: -- Over/Under:
American superstar, Sloane Stephens has made it into the semifinals of the WTA Rogers Cup event in Montreal. The number 3 seed will take on Elina Svitolina from Ukraine who is the number 5 seed for this tournament. These are two of the best players in the field and they have shown their worth in this competition. Both players are in fine form and will look to get into the final after having played so well this far. This should be a great tennis match to watch.
Sloane Stephens has looked very good in this tournament having won all her matches in straight sets. The American is looking to defend her US Open title this year at Roland Garros and this has been a great way for her to get some court time and build momentum. The 25-year-old player has always been a very strong hard court player and she will know that this is the time of year that she can cash in. It has been a really strong 2018 for Sloane Stephens as she has made it to the final of the French Open and other tournaments also. That being said, she has only won one WTA title all season and that is something she will be desperate to change.
On the other side of the court, Elina Svitolina will look to upset Stephens and win this match. The Ukrainian has looked very strong in this tournament as she has eased into the semifinals. This will be the biggest test so far for Elina Svitolina and she will need to step up her game if she wishes to make it into the final.
I don’t think we can go against Sloane Stephens in this match. I am a huge Elina Svitolina fan but I think she will struggle against the determined American. This should be a close game but I see Sloane Stephens winning in three sets.
