The match

It could be a momentous week for Aryna Sabalenka. It could end with her winning a first Roland Garros title and becoming the world number one for the first time. There's work to do though and first the 25-year-old has to get past unseeded Elina Svitolina in the last eight. There are no seeded players to be faced on her way to her first Roland Garros final. If winning this match, the semi-final will see Sabalenka face either Karolina Muchova or 2021 finalist Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. No sets have been dropped by Sabalenka in this tournament as she attempts to win a second clay court title of the year. The last round saw her get a straight sets win over Sloane Stephens. Sabalenka is number one in the live rankings but will need to do better than Iga Swiatek to be in that position at the end of this French Open.

It's less than two months since Elina Svitolina was ranked 1344th in the world. The former world number three is having to make her way back up the rankings after taking time off due to her pregnancy. Even last month the Czech was still outside the top 1000. At the start of this tournament the 28-year-old was ranked 192nd but we all know she's far better than that. The week before Roland Garros, Svitolina won the Strasbourg tournament and her good form has continued at Roland Garros. Her live ranking is 73rd and a win over Sabalenka will take her up to 39th. This is the fourth time the Czech has reached the last eight at Roland Garros. However, she's still waiting for her first semi-final appearance in Paris. It's not been an easy route to this round with two matches seeing her have to come from behind to get the win. This is her third match against Sabalenka with the score level at 1-1. This is their first match on clay and we go for the in-form Sabalenka to win in straight sets.

The bet of our experts

Aryna Sabalenka is the only seed left in the bottom half of the draw. That gives her a great chance to reach her first final at Roland Garros and possibly become world number one. Elina Svitolina is making huge strides up the world rankings but this looks one match too many for her. We tip Sabalenka to win in straight sets.
