Elina Svitolina vs Denisa Allertova, Australian Open R4 Prediction

Australian Open ?? R4 Prediction
?? (4) Elina Svitolina vs ?? (Q) Denisa Allertova

Svitolina may enter this match over 100 places above Allertova in the rankings but that is not a true indication of the threat posed to the 4th seed by Allertova. The only previous match between the pair ended in a victory for Allertova, a straight set win on a hard court in Doha in 2016. Allertova is in superb form in Melbourne, having come through the qualifying draw, Allertova has won 6 matches, all in straight sets. Can Allertova’s big run continue with a big upset over the 4th seed?

I do think Allertova is a dangerous opponent for Svitolina, especially on a quick surface. However, I think Svitolina will find a way to come though this one. Physically, Svitolina will be in better shape heading into this match, Svitolina has played 3 relatively quick matches whilst Allertova has already played 6 matches this week which is uncharted territory for Allertova. Svitolina will force Allertova into a few extra shots compared to what she has come up against in Melbourne. I don’t believe Allertova will be able to consistently penetrate the defense of Svitolina whilst Svitolina will be able to step up and control points when she needs to.

Prediction: Elina Svitolina to defeat Denisa Allertova in 3 sets
