Kenin - Svitolina
Sofia Kenin enjoyed a straight sets win over Dayana Yastremska, dropping just four games. It was a commanding performance in which Kenin converted 100% of her break point opportunities and saved six break points on her serve. The American seems to do well against Top 10 opponents and it seems the bigger the stage, the harder the opponent, the tougher Kenin is to beat.
This should be quite a contest. Svitolina’s serve could use some improvement, but the rest of the #6 seed’s game is so solid it compensates for that deficiency. Kenin has been incredibly consistent and she really challenged Svitolina in Indian Wells. Taking the ball early with controlled aggression will put Svitolina on her heels. A solid, in-form Kenin should get to the semifinals.
