Join us and find out our top tennis pick for the Women's Tennis Olympic Tournament Quarter-Finals. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should place this valuable bet.

Elina Svitolina (15) vs. Petra Kvitova (11)
Petra Kvitova is looking for her first appearance in this event’s semifinals after losing in the 2012 London Olympic Tournament quarterfinals against Maria Kirilenko. Even though this year’s edition doesn’t offer any points or prize money to the players, Kvitova loves to compete for her country with a phenomenal 26 – 9 record in Fed Cup. Petra reaches this stage of the competition after a huge battle against another left-handed player – Ekaterina Makarova – with the Czech emerging victorious from that contest by 4 – 6 6 – 4 6 – 4.  

Known for her competitive mindset and defensive skills, Elina Svitolina recorded her best career victory in the previous round against Serena Williams. Despite Svitolina’s credit on that massive win, the American was far from her best with one of her worst performances ever. Looking to Serena’s numbers, the world no.1 ended the match with awful numbers – 25 winners / 38 unforced errors and winning only 29.17% of the points played on her second serve – while on the other hand, Svitolina ended this contest with 9 winners and 17 unforced errors.

This will be the 4th career meeting between these two players, with Kvitova leading on the h2h by 2 – 1.

After Serena, Svitolina will now face another player known for her powerful game, in a match where things are clearly on Petra’s racket. Even though Svitolina can create some problems with her defensive game, Kvitova should be too strong for the Ukrainian. Petra knows that this is also a huge opportunity for her to grab her first Olympic Medal and for that reason, we’ll add the Czech’s spread betting odds to our betting picks as the best play for this match.
