SBD Preview: Svitolina vs. Swiatek should be a battle

The showdown between Elina Svitolina and Iga Swiatek is the only women’s quarterfinal in Rome that features two seeded players.

But even at that, there’s a 10-spot gap between the two.

But the punters seem to really love Swiatek, with that shiny 2020 Roland Garros trophy still apparently a fresh memory.

So she’s the favorite against Svitolina, even though the Ukrainian is the two-time champion in Rome and has done well in the past against the players with more variety.

Will Rome results prevail?

Will the weather hold out?

Here’s our preview for SBD.
