?? Nature Valley Classic, Birmingham R1 Prediction
?? (2) Elina Svitolina vs. ?? Donna Vekic
I’m going to give Svitolina the benefit of the doubt here. Whilst it is true that grass is Svitolina’s worst surface and grass is Vekic’s best surface, I still think Svitolina will be too strong. Svitolina is arguably the greatest competitor on tour and would have been devastated with her early loss in Paris. I expect her to have improved results on grass in 2018 as she has certainly become a more aggressive player and that should help her win more matches on this surface. Svitolina is simply too consistent for Vekic.
