As the inaugural match of the 2024 tour for Swiatek, her meeting with Haddad Maia is a compelling face-off between the top-ranked Polish sensation and the Brazilian powerhouse. With an intriguing history in their head-to-head encounters, both players are eager to make a strong start to the season and stake their claim in the United Cup.
2-1 to Iga Swiatek @ 17/5 (4.40)
Beatriz started the United Cup campaign strongly with a straight-set win over Sara Sorribes Tormo. With Haddad Maia winning their only hard-court match and showcasing her nerves over Sorribes Tormo, she will stretch Swiatek. On the other hand, Swiatek enters on the back of an exhibition humbling by Aryna Sabalenka in the World Tennis League. It was the first set the Polish ace dropped after eight matches. Based on this, we expect a tough duel, one in which Swiatek should triumph but not without a hiccup and conceding a set.
Over 18.5 Games @ 7/10 (1.70)
Swiatek’s defeat to Sabalenka and the tough trip to Australia can have a bearing on her performance in Perth. On the other hand, her Brazilian rival has won seven matches in succession and will fancy her chances. She has not dropped a set in this period and will fancy her chances against the world number 1. We are expecting a battle, one that sees three sets and an extended number of games being played. Haddad Maia’s two-set match win saw 21 games and we believe the bare minimum will also see the over 18.5 games prediction coming true.

Iga Swiatek preview
Iga Swiatek, the reigning world number 1, enters the United Cup with a formidable reputation following a stellar 2023 campaign. Having concluded the previous season with an impressive 68-11 win-loss record, Swiatek asserted her dominance by clinching titles at the French Open, Doha, Stuttgart, Warsaw, Beijing, and Cancun.

Beatriz Haddad Maia preview
Ranked 11th in the world, Beatriz Haddad Maia seeks to make a strong comeback at the United Cup after a challenging 2023 season, marked by a 37-22 win-loss record. However, the Brazilian player showcased her resilience after finishing the campaign with a title victory in Zhuhai. It complimented her notable semi-final appearances in the French Open and Abu Dhabi during the 2023 calendar year. With a proven ability to contend with the best, Haddad Maia is determined to make her mark in the 2024 opening tournament.
