Pegula will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 148-89 and is 28-11 on the surface this season while having a season record of 38-18 across all surfaces. Svitolina will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 258-113 and has a 31-11 record on Hardcourts this season while being 41-18 for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and past few performances, it seems that Elina Svitolina will be the one heading into the next round but it won’t be an easy win as Pegula herself is in good shape and form right now.

Prediction: Elina Svitolina to win in 3-sets.
