Prediction

Based on recent form and head-to-head statistics, Elena Rybakina is favoured to defeat Elina Svitolina in their upcoming Round of 16 clash at the French Open, with the match likely to go to three sets.

Rybakina’s superior second serve performance (48.72% points won vs. Svitolina’s 46.24%) and her ability to win a higher percentage of her opponent’s second serve points (58.17% vs. Svitolina’s 56.01%) indicate that she has a slight edge in the return game. Additionally, Rybakina has been more effective at saving breakpoints (63.72% vs. Svitolina’s 56.7%), which could prove crucial in tight situations.

While Svitolina holds a 2-1 lead in their direct head-to-head matches, Rybakina’s overall performance over the last year (78.69% match wins) and her ability to perform well under pressure suggest that she has the tools to overcome her opponent. The fact that Rybakina has played most of her matches at the Masters series level, winning 75% of them, further underscores her ability to compete at the highest level.

Result: Elena Rybakina to win in three sets.
