Brisbane International, Quarter-Final Prediction
?? (3) Elina Svitolina vs ?? (5) Johanna Konta
I’m going to go for a bit of an upset here. I think Konta will raise her level for this clash and prove too powerful for Svitolina. Konta has been shown a fierce attitude this week in Brisbane and is clearly as determined as ever to succeed. Of course, Svitolina is also in great form having won two easy matches. Konta will be a step up in opposition. The quick hard courts in Brisbane favour Konta, if Konta executes her game she will be too powerful for Svitolina on this surface. I have a feeling Konta will bring that level after watching her opening two matches.
