Elina Svitolina is playing strong tennis lately and is 3-1 against Simona Halep on hard courts.

The Ukrainian also won the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics. The World No. 5 lost in the first rounds in Montreal and Cincinnati but bounced back strong in Chicago. She won the title after beating five players outside the Top 50.

Svitolina hasn’t lost a set at the US Open. She beat Rebecca Marino 6-2 6-3, Rebeka Masarova 6-2 7-5 and Darya Kasatkina 6-4 6-2 to reach the fourth round.

Halep hasn’t played much tennis in 2021. She reached the Australian Open quarter-finals and the Stuttgart Open semi-finals in April.

The 12th-seeded Romanian took two months off before switching to hard courts in Montreal where she lost in the first round. She withdrew in the second round in Cincinnati. 

Halep beat Camila Giorgi 6-4 7-6 in the US Open first round before posting a 6-3 6-1 win against Kristína Kučová. The 29-year-old defeated World No. 20 Elena Rybakina 7-6 4-6 6-3 in the third round.

Svitolina is 5-3 against Halep in their head-to-head encounters. They last met at the 2019 WTA Championships with Svitolina winning 7-5 6-3. Svitolina has won three of the four encounters on hard courts.

Verdict

Elina Svitolina hasn’t lost a set at the US Open and has the edge against Simona Halep on hard courts. I am backing Svitolina to win at the US Open.
