Simona Halep (6) vs. Elina Svitolina (8)

Simona Halep continues her impressive run on clay in recent weeks. After winning the Mutua Madrid Open title last week, Halep is just one win away from becoming the 2nd player in history to win back-to-back titles in Madrid and Rome. Looking now at Simona’s campaign on this event, the Romanian reaches this stage of the competition after a 7 – 5 6 – 1 victory over Kiki Bertens. Famous for her outstanding return to serve, Simona won 63.40% of her opponents’ service games throughout this tournament.

Regardless of this Sunday’s result, Elina Svitolina already secured her career-high ranking next week. After a brilliant performance in the quarterfinals against Karolina Pliskova, Svitolina couldn’t ask for an easier task in the following round against Garbine Muguruza. Despite the Spaniard’s undeniable quality on this surface, a neck injury forced her to retire from the competition during the opening set. After winning three titles already in 2017, Elina is trying to extend her perfect record in decisive matches this season.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Halep leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

Even though Svitolina is going through a phenomenal moment in her career, it won’t be easy for the Ukrainian to end Halep’s winning streak. Adding to this, Halep also presents an outstanding 4 – 0 record on finals since 2016. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Simona’s tennis betting odds by adding the Romanian’s spread to your betting picks
