Fritz vs Ruud Prediction and Betting Tips - French Open 2024

The French Open has now reached the Round of 16, and the final is right around the corner. Day nine of the tournament has featured a variety of renowned lineups in both men's and women's singles.

Fourth seed Elena Rybakina will face former top 10 player Elina Svitolina in the fourth round on Monday.

Rybakina defeated Greet Minnen and Arantxa Rus in straight sets to get to the third round, where she beat Elise Mertens, also in straight sets 6-4, 6-2.

The Kazakh has maintained a remarkable 30-5 win-loss this season and has displayed excellent performance in the Roland Garros, by reaching the fourth round without dropping a set.

Svitolina carried out a comeback against former World No. 1 Karolina Pliskova in the very first round. She then beat Diane Parry in straight sets to go to the third round, where she defeated Ana Bogdan in straight sets, avoiding an upset. 

The 29-year-old returned to the WTA Tour following maternity leave last season with a new and more aggressive playstyle, reaching the quarterfinals before losing to second seed Aryna Sabalenka.

Rybakina or Svitolina, who among these two should you pick to reach the quarterfinals? Read on for our Rybakina vs Svitolina prediction and betting tips.

How the Bookies View It: Rybakina as Favourite

Bookmaker bet365 is slightly inclined towards Rybakina to win this match, making her the favourite at 1/3. Svitolina on the other hand, stands at 12/5 to her win. Set betting suggests a 2-0 win for Rybakina, with this resulting paying 10/11.

Recent Head-to-Head: Advantage Svitolina

Rybakina and Svitolina have played three WTA Tour-level matches. Svitolina leads the head-to-head 2-1, which is unexpected given how dominant the Kazakhstani player has been in recent years. Their most recent clash was at the 2021 Olympics, where Svitolina won 1-6, 7-6(5), 6-4.

Anything Else Catch the Eye?

Elena Rybakina defeated Elise Mertens in straight sets to keep her Roland-Garros winning streak unbroken. 

The 24-year-old stunned the field to win her first Grand Slam championship at Wimbledon in 2022, but she made an early impression at this level in Paris, reaching the quarter-finals and stunning Serena Williams before losing in three tight sets to eventual runner-up Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Rybakina came second to Aryna Sabalenka at the 2023 Australian Open, but she has struggled to make a major impression thereafter.

The French Open has witnessed Svitolina return to form, winning three straight wins for the first time since the Australian Open. Bogdan caused her some trouble in the previous round, but she eventually defeated her by striking 28 winners. 

Svitolina went on to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals, defeating Iga Swiatek in a three-set thriller before falling short to eventual champion Marketa Vondrousova. She has a 15-10 win-loss record for the 2024 season.

Rybakina vs Svitolina Betting Tips & Predictions

Svitolina's gameplay has evolved beyond an exclusively defensive pattern, and she now frequently attacks her opponents. However, her game isn't as easily offensive as Rybakina's, who has a great serve and can hit winners from all around the court. We predict Rybakina to win this match and end the Ukranian’s 2024 French Open run.
