Emma Raducanu vs Beatriz Haddad Maia – Match Predictions

This could be a classic contest and there are plenty of other excellent ties scheduled for Indian Wells today. Read up on our tennis predictions for Monday’s matches ahead of getting some more specifics on our tips for the Raducanu vs Haddad Maia clash.

Emma Raducanu To Win In Straight Sets

She may not be at 100% fitness, but there have been no signs of this putting Raducanu off her game so far in the tournament. She is yet to drop a set in California after beating Danka Kovinic 6-2, 6-3 in round one before seeing off the 20th seed, Magda Linette, 7-6, 6-2 in round two. We are backing Raducanu to make it three straight sets wins from three in this match.

Over 21.5 Total Games

We are expecting Raducanu to take both sets but that does not mean that she will dominate Haddad Maia in set one and set two. The Brazilian is a tough-cookie and we predict that she will take Raducanu to a tie-break in at least one of the sets and there to be at least 22 games across the match.

Emma Raducanu vs Beatriz Haddad Maia Preview

British tennis fans soon became experts on Emma Raducanu after she went all the way at Flushing Meadows 18 months ago. However, let’s remind ourselves of how she has been performing over recent months and learn more about the career of Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Emma Raducanu

Still only 20 years of age, the British right-hander has made good progress this week and, whisper it quietly, but her injury worries could be becoming a thing of the past. Since winning the 2021 US Open, Raducanu is yet to go beyond the second round of any of the Grand Slams, but a victory in this match would be an excellent sign for her global fanbase.

Beatriz Haddad Maia

At 26, the Brazilian left-hander is enjoying her tennis and she reached her highest world ranking of 12th only one month ago. She has never gone beyond the second round of a Grand Slam and was knocked out of the Australian Open in the first round earlier this year. However,  she did reach the fourth round here at Indian Wells back in 2021.

Raducanu vs Haddad Maia Head to Head

This will be the first time that these two players will go head to head at any tournament.
