Elina Svitolina makes her return to the WTA Tour since her quarter-final loss at the 2021 US Open to eventual runner-up Leylah Fernandez. Elina was the champion at the WTA-250 Chicago Women’s Open before her trip to New York and now returns for another title challenge in Chicago. She received a bye in the first round and hence begins her campaign in the 2nd round.

Amanda Anisimova makes a strong return since her 2nd round defeat at the US Open. The American youngster defeated Switzerland’s Viktorija Golubic 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 in a tough first round clash. Amanda has had a mixed run since the Hardcourt season resumed and is yet to go past the Round of 16 stage in the past 3 months.

Amanda will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 62-37 and is 10-6 on the surface for the season while having a 16-14 record for the season across all surfaces. Elina will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 254-112 and is 27-10 on the surface for the season while being 37-17 for the season across all surfaces.

Amanda’s mixed run in her previous tournaments and Elina’s sensational form makes the Ukrainian favourite for this clash but can face stern resistance from the American who comes fresh from a thrilling 3-setter.

Prediction: Elina Svitolina to win in three-sets.
