Match Betting Previews
Elina Svitolina versus Sofia Kenin - Friday, July 7th
Elina Svitolina has had a long road back since her pregnancy leave from the tour, but she is firing on all cylinders.
Svitolina was known as an elite, consistent, top ten player before her leave, and she is slowly but surely regaining and finding that form.
Svitolina is an all-court player but has shown better results on both hard and grass courts in her career.
She can neutralize the big servers with ability to extend rallies and her athleticism.
When she’s on her game, it is harder than most to hit through the court, something that she will be looking to exemplify against Sofia Kenin.
Sofia Kenin made a dream start to her Wimbledon campaign by beating Cori Gauff and will look to expand even further on a potential return to the top rankings of the game.
Currently sitting in the 100+ of the WTA Tour, Kenin is more talented than what it shows, and she has a huge chance here to punch her ticket into the second week.
Will it happen? It’s easier said than done.
Betting Prediction - Elina Svitolina moneyline and the over games.
Beatriz Haddad Maia versus Sorana Cirstea - Friday, July 7th
Haddad Maia and Cirstea are two of the most skilled veterans on the tour, and they have a chance to make it to week two of Wimbledon.
Haddad Maia, coming off her best result at the Roland Garros is eager to gain momentum and further her push into the top 10 rankings.
Cirstea has had a decent season, but relatively been inconsistent as of late.
There are two advantages going to be played here, one with the grass court experience of Cirstea which could get her over the line.
But the other being Haddad Maia’s fighting spirit and never giving up mentality.
