Jessica Pegula Form


Jessica Pegula won her first WTA Tour title in Washington in 2019 and was one of the most improved players on tour in 2020. 

Now working with Venus Williams’s former coach, Pegula was runner-up to Serena Williams in Auckland in January 2020. She went on to reach the quarterfinals in Cincinnati and the third round of the US Open.

Pegula claimed wins over Jennifer Brady and Aryna Sabalenka on American hard courts in 2021. She has never beaten a top-10 player but has been demolishing some tough opponents in Melbourne. 

After beating former Grand Slam champions Victoria Azarenka and Sam Stosur, Pegula recorded a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Kristina Mladenovic.

A powerful hitter, Pegula’s improved fitness is allowing her to construct points better and hang in rallies longer. This will be crucial against Svitolina.

Elina Svitolina Form


Svitolina is now 8-2 in 2021 and has won six of those eight matches in straight sets.

A quarterfinalist at the Australian Open in 2018-19, Svitolina had a tough first-round match vs Marie Bouzkova but rose to the occasion to beat Coco Gauff 6-4, 6-3 in a very polished performance.

In the third round, Svitolina improved to 6-2 vs Yulia Putintseva. She conceded multiple breaks of serve for the first time this tournament, but broke the Kazakh eight times.

Svitolina is looking in good form but she is always vulnerable to a player with more outright power, like Pegula.
