Barty vs Svitolina (By: StarLion)
WTA Finals: Ashleigh Barty (1) vs Elina Svitolina (8)
This is a perfect Final showdown. The defending WTA Finals champion vs the World Number 1. Odds are 1.90 for each which means you won't be seeing many breaks of service games and a tie break is on cards too.
The WTA Finals have been like an exhibition tournament honestly and I feel the Laver Cup vibes in this. Hence it has been much more dramatic than usual (the average WTA Tour match is dramatic in fact). I only see Over and Over here with many good hold of serves and immediate break backs.
Ashleigh Barty has really won the respect of many and established herself as a credible World Number 1. She is pretty much good in everything and her athleticism is on point.
Svitolina is amazingly talented but it seems she has a mental block somewhere or she just isn't working hard enough before Grand Slams. She has been to 2 Grand Slam semi-finals and 1 quarter-final this year itself. She has to take that extra step soon.
The most astonishing fact is Svitolina has a 5-0 H2H record. That is quite unbelievable, but Svitolina has never beaten Barty since she became World Number 1. Hence more exciting.
I see a 3 setter or a 2 setter with a tie break at least. Can't pick a winner.
