Garbine Muguruza and Elina Svitolina will square off in Rome today, as both players are still seeking consistency throughout this clay season.

Garbine Muguruza has only played four matches on clay this season, but that was due to an injury she suffered in Charleston at the beginning of March. She started her Rome campaign with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Patricia Tig, but then needed three sets to win over Bernarda Pera yesterday. Muguruza’s best performance here in Rome was reaching the Semi-finals back in 2016, 2017 and 2020.

We all know that Elina Svitolina won two titles here in Rome, back in 2017 and 2018, but her recent form on clay hasn’t been great. She has lost against Ashleigh Barty in the Semi-finals in Stuttgart towards the end of March, and then suffered an unexpected loss against Jil Belen Teichmann on the opening round of the Madrid Open. Furthermore, she had to come from a set down to beat Amanda Anisimova on the opening round of the Italian Open yesterday.

Elina Svitolina has won four of the last six meetings with Garbine Muguruza. We think the Ukrainian has enough to win today despite the fact that Garbine is slightly favorite. Elina Svitolina to win is priced at 11/10.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
