Alexandrova E. - Svitolina E. (First set)
Elina Svitolina will play against Ekaterina Alexandrova in the third round of the WTA tournament in Abu Dhabi. This will be the second match between Svitolina and Alexandrova.
They played the first match last season, on clay. Svtolina won 2:0 in that match, it was not an easy victory, she did not easily reach to the first set in that match, but she did not lose her serve in the first set of that match, now they will play on a hard surface, but we should not expect Alexabdrova to be more dangerous on this surface.
Alexandrova was no more convincing than Svitolina in the previous two matches in this tournament, she had a difficult match, in three sets, just a day before this match, so Svitolina will definitely be more ready for the first set of this match. Svitolina did not lose a set in this tournament, so it should remain so after the first set in this match.
