Kudermetova vs Swiatek: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
On October 10, Veronika Kudermetova will play against Iga Swiatek in the third round of Indian Wells tournament. Will Russian player put up a fight against the World No. 4?
Veronika Kudermetova approached the Indian Wells tournament in a great form. Russian player put up a successful performance at Chicago tournament, in which she won two matches and then was beaten by Elena Rybakina (6:7, 5:7).
At the start of Indian Wells tournament Kudermetova played a match against her compatriot, Samsonova. Kudermetova dominated the game and recorded a confident victory (6:2, 6:3). She lost only one game at her serve, but she managed to convert four break-points out of four.
Iga Swiatek is also in a wonderful form now. Polish player reached the round of 16 at US Open and then reached the semi-final of Ostrava tournament. We should note that Swiatek didn't win a single match with a handicap over five games.
In the first match at Indian Wells Swiatek played against Petra Martic. Polish player recorded a confident victory over her opponent (6:1, 6:3), as it was expected.
This bet was successful in two most recent matches of Swiatek
In three out of five most recent matches of Kudermetova more than nine games were played in the second set
One year ago Kudermetova and Swiatek played against each other at US Open. Back then, Polish player recorded a confident victory (6:3, 6:3). That's why Swiatek is a huge favourite of match at Indian Wells. But in recent tournaments she failed to record a single victory with a crushing score. Kudermetova put up a great performance in her first match of the tournament and also performed well at Chicago. We think that Russian player won't leave the court without a fight.
Our prediction - Kudermetova to win with a handicap of (+5) games
Prediction: Handicap (+5) for Kudermetova
