Elina Svitolina (5) meets Anastasija Sevastova in the quarter finals of the 2021 Miami Open on Wednesday, March 31st 2021.

Will Anastasija Sevastova cause the upset and get herself into the quarterfinals here in Miami, or will Elina Svitolina be able to back up her great performance in the fourth round?

Anastasija Sevastova came through a straight sets victory over Ana Konjuh, beating the Croatian 6-1/7-5. The second set was much higher than the first and it really could have been anyone’s game, but Sevastova was able to stay strong in her return game, eventually breaking to win the set. Sevastova is an experienced player, but she will have to drastically raise her level in this quarter final if she is to get anything out of a very determined Elina Svitolina here in Miami. Sevastova can definitely cause the upset, but will she have the self belief after a sloppy second set against Konjuh?

Elina Svitolina pulled off a solid comeback on Monday, coming back from a set down against Petra Kvitova to win the match in e sets 2-6/7-5/7-5. It looked as if it was going to be easy work for Petra Kvitova for the majority of the first two sets, however, Svitolina was able to stay in the match and maintain composure to eventually tire out the Czech player. Svitolina is one of the hardest working and toughest players on the WTA Tour, and it will be great to see her winning some big titles again, but she will have to ensure she does not allow her opponents to run away with the first set.

This is going to be the third meeting between both players, with the head to head tied at 1-1. I definitely expect a very interesting encounter with both players being in solid form here in Miami. However, at the end of the day, I believe that the determination and skill of Elina Svitolina will give her enough to get on top of this match early, and not let go of the lead. Elina Svitolina to win and make her way through to the semi finals in Miami.
