Elena Rybakina vs Elina Svitolina: 2024 Wimbledon - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Elena Rybakina is a few matches away from yet another final at Wimbledon, but to get there, she'll have to go through Elina Svitolina.

Rybakina won the Wimbledon Championships two years ago, which is, to date, her biggest tennis achievement. She hasn't won another Grand Slam beyond that, but she keeps proving that she's certainly capable of it.

Her run this year has looked really impressive so far, but Svitolina has certainly impressed as well. This is the second year in a row the Ukrainian has been playing amazing tennis at Wimbledon, and now she's looking to match the semi-final from last year.

She seems motivated, and the conditions suit her well, and that's why she will try to produce an upset in this match. Rybakina is hugely favored simply because very few tennis players can match her when she plays her best.

Her serve is a major weapon, especially on the low-bouncing grass courts, and her monstrous forehand allows her to dominate the rallies.


The lower bounce on grass certainly helps as well because it doesn't give her opponents a chance to put the ball back into the court. Svitolina has played her four times so far and won twice, but both wins happened a while ago.

The most recent match took place at the 2024 Roland Garros, and Rybakina won it in only two sets. The match was played on her racket there, and the same will be true here on the grass.

Svitolina likely has a better chance of beating Rybakina on grass than on clay because, with enough pressure, Rybakina doesn't have the time she has on clay to set up properly.

Prediction: Elena Rybakina to win in two sets.
