Buzkova - Svitolina: what to expect from Elina at the start of Australian Open?
Marie Buzkova - Elina Svitolina. Prediction for WTA Australian Open (9 February 2021)
Elina Svitolina will start the game against Marie Buzkova on February 9 in Melbourne at the Australian Open. Will the Ukrainian tennis player manage to win a landslide victory? - the answer is in our forecast.
For Marie Buzkova who is the 52nd racket of the world, performances at the Australian Open are unsuccessful. The Czech tennis player was unable to qualify in 2018 and 2019. A year ago, Marie already started from the first round of the main draw, but could not oppose Naomi Osaka (2-6, 4-6).
This year, at the pre-helmet tournament in Melbourne, Marie Buzkova showed herself very well. Samantha Stosur (6-2, 6-0) and Alena Bolshov (6-3, 6-7, 6-2) managed to pass the tournament grid. In the 1/8 finals, Marie played a controversial match against the first racket of the world Ashley Barty. After the devastating first set, Buzkova managed to pull herself together, but Ashley's class still affected, who won that fight (6-0, 4-6, 6-3).
Upcoming Predictions for Tennis
Elina Svitolina has won two quarterfinals and last year's third round at the Australian Open in the past three seasons. Then in 2020, Elina could not do anything with the future finalist of the tournament Garbiñe Muguruza (1-6, 2-6).
Svitolina received enough playing practice in the new season. The fifth racket of the world at tournaments in Abu Dhabi and Melbourne reached the quarterfinals, winning five of seven fights at these starts. Not in all matches, it was possible to confidently deal with her opponents, but Elina was charged to fight in every game. You can remember how she almost saved the "dead" match with Eliza Mertens at the pre-helm tournament in Melbourne in the quarterfinals when she returned to the game with a score of 2-5 in the second game. Then Svitolina lacked a little before the final victory (3-6, 7-5, 6-10).
Elina Svitolina got a difficult opponent in the first round. Marie Buzkova is progressing rapidly and is quite capable of surprises. However, Elina has experience and knowledge on the side of what can be expected from her opponent, whom she beat in the final of the tennis tournament in Monterrey last season. We offer a forecast for the victory of the favorite with a small minus handicap, which took place in all Elina's winning matches this season.
Our prediction is that Svitolina will win with a handicap (-3.5) of the game with a coefficient of 1.8 on 1xbet.
