Svitolina has won 7 straight played matches. Svitolina looks to make her ninth career grand slam quarterfinal and her fourth at the French Open. Svitolina has 35 career wins over top-10 players, but none of those wins have come since 2021. Svitolina has won 7 straight matches on clay court.
Daria Kasatkina Betting Preview
Daria Kasatkina is coming off a straight set win over Peyton Stearns that took 13 games to decide. In the victory, Kasatkina won 85 percent of her first serve points and 50 percent of her second serve points. Kasatkina won 83 percent of her total service points and converted on 6 of her 8 break points. Kasatkina got 93 percent of her first serves in play and didn’t face a single break point. Kasatkina looks to make her fourth career grand slam quarterfinal and third at the French Open. Kasatkina is 3-0 in career grand slam fourth round matches. Kasatkina has won 7 of her last 9 matches on clay court.
Svitolina has won all 6 matches against Kasatkina, with their most recent match coming in the 2021 US Open. The lone meeting on clay came in 2018 Rome. Four of the 6 matches were decided in straight sets.
Kasatkina should be the favorite for obvious reasons, as she’s been the better player this year and Svitolina is still working her way back from a pregnancy and hiatus. However, Svitolina has played great tennis these last couple of weeks, and she’s dominated the h2h against Kasatkina. It makes Svitolina and the plus money very attractive.
I’ll take a shot with Svitolina at this price.
