Iga Swiatek vs Jule Niemeier- Match Predictions

Picking the right bet can be a daunting task; but not to worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve carefully analysed both players, providing the best value for you. That said, these are our predictions and tips for Iga Swiatek vs Jule Niemeier.

Under 17.5 Games

Although Jule Niemeier impressed in her last encounter with Swiatek, her recent form doesn’t inspire much confidence. The German has lost three from three this year, all in straight sets; in fact, five of her last six matches ended in straight sets losses. Furthermore, we would like to point out that Niemeier did not win more than seven games in any match she’s played this year. Considering how well Iga has been playing lately, we believe that this will be a one-sided contest; and that’s why we’re predicting under 17.5 games.

Iga Swiatek -6.5 Games

We’ve already pointed out that Jule Niemeier lost five of her last six matches in straight sets. In contrast, Iga Swiatek has three wins in four singles matches this season, and those wins came in straight sets. To be fair, Niemeier did take a set off Iga the last time these two met. However, once Swiatek found her stride, Niemeier couldn’t keep up; as the final set ended 6-0 in favour of Iga. Bearing that in mind, we think Iga can cover -6.5 games.

Iga Swiatek vs Jule Niemeier Preview

With our predictions already established, let’s take a look at both players’ recent form.

Iga Swiatek

Iga Swiatek kicked off her new campaign with a straight sets victory over Yulia Putintseva. The current World number 1 has won five of six matches across singles and mixed doubles this year. However, Swiatek is coming off a disappointing straight sets loss at the hands of Jessica Pegula; can she get back to winning ways today?

Jule Niemeier

Jule Niemeier’s season hasn’t gone as well as she had hoped. The German suffered two losses at the United Cup, before exiting in the qualifying round of the Adelaide 2 event. This will be a tricky fixture for Niemeier, it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against Iga Swiatek.
