Overpriced Halep worth fading against Svitolina this Thursday

<div><h2>Elina Svitolina (8) vs Simona Halep (7)</h2><p><strong>Thursday, July 11, London</strong></p><p>Simona Halep continued her quest for a second Grand Slam title on Tuesday with a 7-6(4), 6-1 win over Shuai Zhang in one hour and 27 minutes. The former world No.1 struggled with her groundstrokes early in the match and looked in real danger when 4-1 down in the opening set. Nevertheless, Halep found her groove and won 12 of the final 15 games in the match to reach the semi-finals at the All England Club for the first time since 2014.</p><p>Looking now at Simona’s draw on this event, the No.7 seed will next take on Elina Svitolina for a place in the final of the third Grand Slam of the season. The 24-year-old battled back from a 5-2 deficit in the opening set to beat Karolina Muchova 7-5, 6-4 and reach her first major semi-final. As we predicted in our <a href="" target="_blank" title="Svitolina vs Muchova: Wimbledon 2019 Quarter-Finals Tennis Tips">quarter-finals article</a>, Svitolina proved too solid for the Czech with just 16 unforced errors against 31 from her opponent. Adding to this, the world No.6 broke serve six times and won 50% of the points played on Muchova’s serve.</p><p><a href=";a=f339dce1-88de-4994-ab6a-c24e019bdf3b&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%;height:38px" /></a></p><p>This will be the ninth official meeting between these two players with each of them winning four of their previous eight official encounters on the WTA Tour.</p><p>Despite the balance in their head-to-head, Halep is the main favourite to win this match at 1.44 (11/25) with <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill &amp; Start Playing Today!">William Hill</a>. The Ukrainian is playing her first Grand Slam semi-final and her lack of experience at this level is an important aspect to take into account. However, Svitolina is not an easy matchup for Simona and won at least one set in all their last six meetings.
