Swiatek vs Rybakina: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
On March 18, Iga Swiatek and Elena Rybakina will fight for a second spot in the final of Indian Wells tournament. Who will get a victory? The answer is in our prediction.
Swiatek is on a mission to defend her Indian Wells title. World No. 1 player didn't lose a single set in four matches.
A third round match against Andreescu turned out to be the hardest one for Iga, she had to play a tie-break in the second set (6:3, 7:6). Polish player also managed to beat Claire Liu (6:0, 6:1), Raducanu (6:3, 6:1) and Cirstea (6:2, 6:3).
Rybakina managed to improve her result in Indian Wells. In 2022, Rybakina was stopped by Maria Sakkari (5:7, 4:6) in the quarter-final.
World No. 10 player had a difficult path to the semi-final. In the first round she needed two tiebreaks to beat Sofia Kenin (7:6, 7:6). After that, Elena secured a narrow victory over Badosa (6:3, 7:5). Rybakina crushed Gracheva (6:3, 6:0) in the round of 16. Quarter-final match against Muchova (7:6, 2:6, 6:4) turned out to be the hardest one for Rybakina.
Ставка Total under 2.5 sets
This bet played in three head-to-head matches
Ставка 1st set: total over 9,5
This bet played in two of three head-to-head matches
Rybakina won two of three head-to-head matches. Elena even managed to beat the World No. 1 player in a recent Australian Open tournament (6:4, 6:4). Swiatek had a difficult match against Andreescu and sometimes Iga struggles at her serve. We don't think that Swiatek will win by a wide margin.
Our prediction - Rybakina to win with a handicap of (+5) games
Opponents already had three head-to-head matches. All of these matches ended in straight sets. We are expecting another short encounter.
Our second bet is on total under 21 games
