Didn't watch the match but looking at the highlights Svitolina seemed to play well? A bit more aggressive than usual. Her thigh is still strapped, maybe she doesn't want to run as much as she usually does :p Well, she is technically defending SF points so she needs to get a good run here if she wants to remain in the top 10.

Martincova has been in good form as of late - she won 2 matches in both her previous tournaments and gave a good fight in the second set.

It was a satisfactory match from Elina; she missed a lot of of opportunities in the middle of the second set to take a stronger lead but did a good job at the end to close it out in 2. The strapping on her thigh was minimal - looked more like a giant band aid.

svitolina plays aggressive DTLs pretty frequently, especially in early rounds of non-slams, and every poster on TF acts shocked whenever this happens. she is a pusher sometimes but she is not Sorribes Tormo or something who cannot hit a baseline winner to save her life

When in position and taking the ball on the rise she can give her FH a pretty good clout too.

Martincova had some good wins lately so that wasn't necessarily a super easy first round for her but looks like she did well here.
