Iga Swiatek vs Lesia Tsurenko – Match Predictions
As these players go toe-to-toe with each other for the third time today, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Iga Swiatek to Cover -7.5 Games
To be fair, Lesia Tsurenko reached the round of 16 of this event without dropping a set. However, the Ukrainian player hasn’t fared too well against Iga Swiatek in the past. It may interest you to know that these players clashed two times on clay courts, and Iga Swiatek won both meetings by the same 6-2, 6-0 scoreline.
As a matter of fact, Iga has bagelled every opponent she has faced in this competition. The Polish ace defeated Cristina Bucsa 6-4, 6-0; Claire Liu 6-4, 6-0 and Xinyu Wang 6-0, 6-0 in this tournament; she hasn’t surrendered more than four games in any of her matches in this year’s French Open. Keeping in mind that Lesia Tsurenko did not win more than two games in either of her previous skirmishes with Swiatek, we believe the current World number 1 will cover -7.5 games today.
Less Than 17 Total Games
Although the 16.5 games line looks a little low for this match, it’s worth mentioning that previous meetings between these players went comfortably below it. As a matter of fact, Iga Swiatek and Lesia Tsurenko squared off against each other on two occasions, and both meetings went under 14.5 games. Likewise, all of Swiatek’s matches in this tournament went below this line; her most recent match featured just 12 games. On that note, we are taking the under option for this match.
Iga Swiatek vs Lesia Tsurenko Preview
Let’s see how these players have fared so far in this year’s edition of the French Open.
Iga Swiatek has been unstoppable in this tournament so far; she breezed past Cristina Bucsa, Claire Liu and Xinyu Wang in straight sets, whilst not surrendering up to five games to any of those players. The current World number 1 will fancy her chances of advancing to the quarter-final ahead of her Ukrainian opponent.
Like today’s opponent, Lesia Tsurenko won her first three matches in straight sets, holding her own against former grand slam champions like Barbora Krejcikova and Bianca Andreescu. The Ukrainian player will have her work cut out for her, as she takes on an in-form Iga Swiatek; it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against the three-time grand slam champion.
