We’ve reached the decisive day with Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina fighting for the Internazionali BNL D’Italia title. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Halep vs. Svitolina
Known as one of the best clay-court players on the WTA Tour, Simona Halep improved her brilliant record on red dirt in 2017 to 14 – 1 after her victory over Kiki Bertens at the Internazionali BNL D’Italia semi-finals. Besides winning 52.24% of the points on Bertens’ serve, Simona ended the match with impressive stats from the baseline – 17 winners and only 9 unforced errors.
At the age of 22, Elina Svitolina is going through the best moment in her career. After defeating Garbine Muguruza in the previous round, Svitolina already secured her career-high ranking next week. Taking a look now at Elina’s numbers throughout the week, the highlight goes to her performance on pressure points. Besides winning 60.70% of the break point opportunities on her opponents’ serve, the Ukrainian also managed to save 73.30% of the chances on her own serve.
These two players are no strangers with Halep winning their two previous meetings. Despite Svitolina’s remarkable campaign throughout the week, Halep looks unbeatable at the moment. Having said that, Simona is the clear favourite to lift the trophy this Sunday at 1/2 at William Hill while 5Dimes offers 2/1 for Elina’s victory.
