Keys vs Svitolina: prediction for the WTA Adelaide 2
Madison Keys was beaten by Elina Svitolina in two most recent matches. Who will record a victory at Adelaide on January 10? The answer is in our prediction.
Madison Keys is not looking successful on tour, she dropped to the 56th spot in the world rankings. Previously, the American player was a member of Top-10 and even reached the final of US Open once.
Keys also got off to a poor start in the new season. Last week, she started the Melbourne tournament with a narrow victory over Dart (6:3, 7:6). In the second round American player was eliminated by Kasatkina (6:7, 6:2, 3:6).
Elina Svitolina ended the 2021 season outside of Top 10, at 15th spot in the world rankings. The new season started poorly for the Ukrainian athlete.
Svitolina started the Adelaide tournament with a match against Anastasia Gasanova. Odds on Russian player's victory was at 6.90 in bookmaking companies. But eventually Gasanova recorded a victory in three sets (5:7, 6:4, 6:3). Svitolina needs to improve her performance at the baseline, otherwise the Australian part of the season will be a complete disaster for Svitolina.
In 3 out of 5 most recent matches of Svitolina more than nine games were played in the first set
Three most recent head-to-head matches went by that scenario
Keys and Svitolina played many head-to-head matches. In two most recent head-to-head matches Ukrainian player beat the American. In the previous week, both athletes underperformed, but overall Svitolina is a much more skilled player than Keys, so she will have a chance for a victory.
