TennisSection previews the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as Elina Svitolina takes on Camila Giorgi in the Quarter-Finals on Wednesday, July 28th, 2021.
Will Camila Giorgi be able to get another huge win under her belt as she has caused a big upset in the third round? Will Elina Svitolina finally get herself on top of a match early instead of having to fight back from a set down to get the win? Both players can win this match if they are at their best, but only one will make their way to the Semi-Finals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Who will win?
Camila Giorgi put on a great match in the third round, upsetting the much higher ranked Karolina Pliskova in straight sets 6-4/6-2. Camila Giorgi was given no chance coming into this match as Karolina Pliskova has been in great form this month as she reached the Wimbledon Final, however, that did not stop Camila Giorgi. Camila is not really that consistent, but clearly when she is at her best, she can compete with the best in the world. Now, Camila meets another very ranked opponent in Elina Svitolina and she will have to use all the confidence gained from the third round if she wants to cause another upset.
Elina Svitolina had to come back from a set down in yet another match to get herself into the next round, by beating the very in form Maria Sakkari in 3 sets 5-7/6-3/6-4. Elina Svitolina is showing great composure and experience because she is able to comeback in these matches here in Tokyo, but she now needs to get herself on top of these matches early because the matches will just get tougher and tougher as the tournament goes on. Elina has the game to dominate anyone and everyone left in the draw, but she just needs to find the form again. I expect her to want to show us why she is so high ranked and a big name as she now meets Camila Giorgi.
Elina Svitolina and Camila Giorgi have met 2 times before, with the head to head tied at 1-1. They have not met in 4 years so we really cannot go from their previous encounters. I think this match is going to be tight, but I see Elina finally coming out here and getting a win without having to come back from a set down. Camila will be riding the high of making it so far already and this will give Elina the edge as she will be more composed. Elina Svitolina will give herself a solid chance at a medal here as she will reach the Semi-Finals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
