Elina Svitolina vs Magda Linette : Preview
Elina continues her fine form at Wimbledon and advances into the 2nd round after a tight 1st round contest. Elina was up against Alison Van Uytvanck and went on to win the match 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 as she moved ahead at the All-England Club.
Svitolina had reached the semi-finals of the 2019 Wimbledon and was unfortunate to lose to the eventual champion Simona Halep who is not playing this year at the Championships. Svitolina has reached the 2nd round only on 4 previous occasions and will be looking to extend her run as she still continues chasing her maiden Grand Slam title.
Magda Linette clears her first round hurdle at Wimbledon just for the 2nd time in her career as she defeats American Amanda Anisimova 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 to as she registers her 3rd win at the All-England Club.
Linette had reached the 3rd round at the 2019 Wimbledon which remains her best result at the Grand Slam and with her first round win this year, she finds herself in a position to enter the 3rd round for the 2nd consecutive year.
Elina Svitolina vs Magda Linette : Head to Head

Elina Svitolina vs Magda Linette : Prediction
Magda will take the court with a career Grass record of 15-22 and an overall season record of 7-8 having not played many tournaments this season due to her fitness issues.
Elina will come into the clash as the favourite to win and advance ahead as she has a career Grass record of 17-20 and an overall season record of 23-12 and given her better form throughout the season, she looks the one to win her 3rd match against Magda.
Prediction: Elina Svitolina to win in 3-sets.
