Our favourite Iga Swiatek vs Danielle Collins – match predictions

Swiatek triumphed in the 2022 Indian Wells and reached the semi-finals in the 2023 edition. She is the top seed this time around but has to get past Collins to get her title bid started.

2-0 to Iga Swiatek @ 7/20 (1.35)

It is difficult to envisage Swiatek being ousted at her first hurdle, such has been the proficiency of the world number 1. Collins will hope to dent this statistic following her battling victory over Andreeva. However, with a 5-1 H2H score against each other, we are backing the Polish ace to triumph. With Swiatek winning her last nine matches in straight sets, we are backing her to coast in this duel as well.

Under 18.5 Games @ 9/10 (1.90)

After an active fortnight in Doha and Dubai, 15 days away from the court would have revitalized Swiatek. This will be bad news for Collins as the Polish star will be energised for her second-round match. With the most bagels and breadsticks in 2023, she would be looking to build on it and should finish off the match early as well. Based on this, we are backing the Under 18.5 games conclusion to this duel.
