Svitolina vs Halep (By: Stanioooo)

That's the final match in Rome between Elina Svitolina and Simona Halep.

If we see both ways till the final, they had one harder match, when the things didn't go so easy for them on the court and they had to show their best. Elina had problems against Kasatkina. Although she was bageled in the 1st set, she turned the match in her favor. Simona's big problems were against Sharapova in the last round when she also turned the match from one set behind.

These two players were part of last year's final and Svitolina took the title in three sets. Svoitolina also leads 3:1 H2H and all of the matches were played in 2017, so these results are current and have to be noticed seriously. Halep has one win in Roland Garros, when she succeeded to win hardly the 2nd set in tiebreak and then turned the match from one set behind, so Svitolina is not her favorite opponent at all for sure. The Ukrainian doesn't look to have any big weapon like strong and fast service or forehand/backhand, but her fighting abilities till the end are unbelievable, especially in the finals. Svitolina is 11/2 in the finals and 2/2 this season, so I just can't play against her. She is the reigning champion in Rome, also beat Kontaveit in straight sets and we know that the Estonian was in hot form.. I know Halep is also a fighter, but Svitolina has better chances for me to defend the title.

You're missing (on purpose or by lack of knowledge) the fact that in the 2017 final Halep was up and in command when she tweaked her ankle. After that Svitolina has turned the game.
So, without that injury, would you still have that h2h base you're relying on? :)

... or we'd have a 2:0 h2h on claycourts?

Take in account that Halep had yesterday a win over Sharapova with huge significance in her inner battle, which should come with a big boost in world no1's confidence.

Maybe you also forget(on purpose or lack of knowledge :D ) that Svitolina was up 6:3 5:2 at Roland Garros but missed match points in the 2nd set before losing it in tiebreak and then the 3rd.

They are equal players, no matter if they play on hard or clay :)) I gave my prediction, Svitolina is closer to the title for me, everyone has the right to play whatever he/she wants, that's my pick.

No, I do not forget :)

But in the case you're mentioning Svitolina wasn't good enough to capitalize the advantage, while in the last year's final she won based on the opponent's injury.

I respect your pick, while I challenge your arguments. Please, take it as a betting debate, as it's nothing personal :)

Khum, I also have nothing personal to you, but you always want to debate with me. Come to Bulgaria and we can talk about tennis how much hours you want on whatever topics :)

I know there are a lot of Romanians in this site, don't take it personal, but Romanians can't always win to give tips for them. Such as Bulgarians, there are a lot of times when out compatriots are on the losing side. A few days ago I bet on Nishikori to beat Grigor Dimitrov. It wasn't easy for me, but if you want to be good at betting, you have to stay away from compatriot's support and to look objectively what's the situation and the chances. This time I decide to pick Svitolina, maybe if they face at Roland Garros I can pick the other side, it depends on the stage of the tournament and the current form, not only H2H. H2H is important for me, only if the results are current and they had matches on the same surface.

Best of luck, Khum!

Stan, I have-nt said you have anything personal on me. I've suggested you fail taking as it is when I'm contesting one of your arguments and you react like I'have contested your pick or your person. Well, I haven't.

You are ok, your pick can always be ok despite a argument being weak or incomplete.

When diverting on Romanians, Bulgarians, supporting the compatriot or fantasizing on me always?? wanting to debate with you you're sooo losing the point. Get off that funny idea ... I haven't comment one of your bets in ages.
I simply saw a fishy argument on your pick and I was simply showing more things for people to take in account while betting.

Since this is your attitude, defending the territory when it ain't attacked ... and I'm only interested in constructive and on point discussions, you have my promise I'll stay away from your posts.

Best of luck ;)

I am not the one who lost point when he is talking or writing. You always give an argument, I give you mine which sometimes are totally opposite and I am always wrong for you. There was an injury in one of their matches and that's the reason Svitolina beat her..I am okay with that, accept it, but why you didn't answer to my statement about the win of Halep after Svitolina missed a lot of match points at Roland Garros.. it's not in your favor. You said it can be 2:0 on clay for Simona if it wasn't the injury in Rome, but why you didn't say the luck she got with the missed MPs.

Well, that's the reason why I bet on Svitolina here. 6:0 6:4. Why you didn't say anything about the two wins for Svitolina on hard courts, when H2H was not so important for you and is weak argument.. because they were not for Halep.

Sorry man, but you always try to make me little, like I don't understand anything about tennis, but my stats speak about that. I really don't pay any attention to people who try such dirty things..Sometimes I can give not the most accurate statements, that's true, it's not so easy to write previews, but I try my best. You also have to prove yourself, because I have some doubts, if I have to be absolutely honest.

I answered very clear to that argument of yours: Svitolina wasn't good enough to capitalize her advantage.
Try reading more again. I promise you'll find that.
Tennis isn't about having match points, but about winning them. Lucl is a abstract meaningless word people use tot hide behind. Injuries are facts.

Why I didn't say about those 2 wins? I've said the h2h would probably have been different without that injury. That different h2h would still have those wins. It would probably be 2-2 while those two were not to be doubted, so there were nothing to be said of them..

Earlier you've said you didn't take it personal. Now you say I always try to make you little, like you don't understand anything about tennis. You see why I say you're making a personal issue out of a on point argument? Chill, I'm not trying anything on you, as I don't know you and I have no interest in you.
It's tennis I'm talking about.

Adrai, you're so funny :)))
There was never about the pick, but about his argument.
