Clara Burel vs Elina Svitolina: Preview
As a lucky loser, Clara Burel has qualified for the main draw. The world number 91 Frenchwoman won the first qualifying round 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 against Chile’s Bárbara Gatica, but lost the second qualifying round 6-2, 5-7, 2-6 to Indonesia’s Aldila Sutjiadi. In the round of 32, she’ll play No. 1 seed Elina Svitolina.
So far on the North American trip, the Olympic bronze medalist has struggled. Johanna Konta came back from a set down to overcome the Ukrainian 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 at the Canadian Open, while Angelique Kerber eliminated the 26-year-old with a 7-5, 2-6, 6-4 triumph in Cincinnati last week. The World No. 6 has to regain her winning form in Chicago, with the US Open only a week away. She has an excellent chance of reaching her first final of the season in Chicago, where she is seeded No. 1, and fine-tuning her game ahead of the grand slam.

Clara Burel vs Elina Svitolina: Prediction
The tournament’s top seed Svitolina will undoubtedly attempt to win this tournament in order to boost her confidence ahead of the US Open. Her season hasn’t gone so well so far, with the exception of a bronze medal in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. However, we feel she will easily defeat Burel.
Our predictions: Svitolina to win in straight sets.
