Elina Svitolina, Ukraine’s top tennis player will face Simona Halep today, June 7, as Roland Garros is in full swing in France.  

The Ukrainian defeated her first opponents in the competition quite easily. However, the round of the last 16 brought certain difficulties with it; Svitolina barely overplayed Croatian Petra Martic, initially losing the third set (2:5). The Ukrainian finished the game with an injury, which might affect her performance in the next fixture – against Halep.  

Recently, Halep lost to Svitolina, and this fixture could become an opportunity for the Romanian to have her revenge; only back then, it was Halep who was injured, and now Svitolina is in the tough spot.
