The experts are leaning in favor of Svitolina, who won their first and only previous match, in 2020 at Monterrey. She won 6-4, 7-4 then, and arrives here after taking her last four US Open opponents down in straight sets, including a 6-3, 6-3 win vs Simona Halep in the Round of 16.

Svitolina was dominant in that match, with five aces and only one double-fault. With Osaka and Barty out, she's become a major threat to win her first Grand Slam tournament.

The 73rd-ranked Fernandez, though, is no stranger to upsets, taking the 2020 Open champ Naomi Osaka out in the third round (5-7, 7(7)-6(2), 6-4) and the 17th-ranked Angelique Kerber of Germany down in the Round of 16 (6-4, 6(5)-7(7), 2-6).

Fernandez has demonstrated a solid will to come back, though, recovering from being down a set against both Kerber and Osaka. Here's how to watch Elina Svitolina vs Leylah Annie Fernandez online:
