Elina Svitolina vs Nadia Podoroska. Prediction | Odds2win.bet

This meeting becomes even more intriguing due to the fact that the athletes have never crossed paths with each other before.
The Ukrainian did not win a single Grand Slam and at Roland Garros she only repeated the best achievement (she previously reached the quarterfinals in 2015 and 2017). However, it is Svitolina who is now considered the main contender for victory in Paris. The reasons are the departure of Halep and Plishkova, as well as the excellent shape of Svitolina herself. In case of reaching the semifinals, Elina will have to play with a relatively simple opponent the winner of the Schwentek-Trevisan pair (both are not included in the top 50).
Before Roland Garros the Ukrainian won the clay tournament in Strasbourg. In the opening rounds of the Parisian major, Svitolina passed Gracheva with some problems (she took the starting set only in a tie-break after 4:0, and in the second she lost 2 starting serves) and Sarasua, to which she gave one of the sets dry. After that, the Ukrainian significantly improved and beat two tennis players from the top 50 - Aleksandrova (6:4, 7:5) and Garcia (6:1, 6:3). In the last match, Svitolina made 6 breaks.

The Argentinean jumped over her head, reaching the quarterfinals of Roland Garros: before that Podoroska had never passed the starting circle of the majors. Before the start of the current tournament, Nadia won the ITF clay tournament in San Melo (the highest rank of the opponents - 118). The current position of the Argentine in the WTA rankings is 131.
After that, Podoroska successfully passed 3 rounds of qualification. In all matches she was a favorite and did not give her opponents a single set.
In the main draw, we also managed to avoid meetings with top rivals. The only exception is the sensational victory over Yulia Putintseva (2:1). In the last round, Nadya defeated Czech Barbora Kreichikova. She lost the first set 2:6, but later added (6:2, 6:3).
It is difficult to disagree with the bookmakers that Svitolina is head and shoulders above Podoroska, who has no experience of performing at the level of the major's quarterfinals. The Ukrainian has no right to miss the opportunity to reach the semifinals of Roland Garros for the first time. We expect Elina to win in two sets.
