Bianca Vanessa Andreescu to Cover +6.5 Games
Iga Swiatek’s dominance cannot be explained. The current World number 1 has seven wins in her last eight singles matches (excluding walkovers); and almost all of those opponents got treated to a 6-0 bagel or 6-1 breadstick, or both. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that this line is as high as -6.5.
However, we believe that Bianca Andreescu will put up a relatively better fight than most of Iga’s recent opponents. These players met in Rome last year, and although Iga won in straight sets, Bianca managed to force a tie-break in one of those sets. That said, we believe the former world number 4 can win at least 6 games today.
Over 18.5 Total Games
The only other time these players met, they went above this line. Bianca Andreescu has been plagued by injuries throughout her career, but when she’s healthy, she can hold her own against some of the best players on tour. Granted, we expect Iga to take this in straight sets, but Andreescu should keep it close enough to go over 18.5 games.
Iga Swiatek vs Bianca Andreescu Preview
Our Iga vs Bianca predictions have been established. Now we would like to look at both players’ performances in this tournament so far.
As expected, Iga Swiatek didn’t have too much trouble in her opening match. The Pole took out Claire Liu in just over one hour, surrendering just one game in the process. Swiatek will be eyeing a fourth round spot as she looks to defend her Indian Wells title, and she’ll fancy her chances against Andreescu.
On the other hand, Bianca Vanessa Andreescu had a slow start to her previous match against Peyton Stearns, as she surrendered the first set to the American. However, she bounced back from the start of the second set, emerging victorious in three sets. Compared to Stearns, Iga Swiatek will be a relatively bigger fish to fry. Can Bianca defeat the number 1 player in the world today?
