Iga Swiatek vs Karolina Pliskova – Match Predictions

Discover what are the right WTA Stuttgart predictions and picks for the upcoming challenge between Iga Swiatek vs Karolina Pliskova.

Set 1: Under 8.5 Games

In the only duel between these two players, Swiatek gave Pliskova one of his worst defeats, as the Czech tennis player did not win a single game. Although it’s been two years since that match, Swiatek has a more solid game than the previous time, so we expect her to solve each match quickly as she did in the previous round.

Under 19.5 Total Games

In the previous round, Swiatek needed only 17 games in total to win. This time it is possible that the matchup will have a similar amount of games, so we expect less than 19.5. The only time they met there were only 12 games.

Iga Swiatek

After a few early exits in recent events, the Polish tennis player is trying to put in a better performance. Despite being ranked number one, Iga has struggled to establish herself this year. After her first match against Qinwen Zheng, Swiatek showed a good performance with which she controlled the match from start to finish. We will probably see her play the same way until the final stages when she will face other top players.

Karolina Pliskova

Pliskova got through the first round with ease, which was not expected as her opponent was Maria Sakkari.  However, her second opponent, Donna, offered a more intense duel, which lasted for three sets.  Although Karolina dominated the first set and won 6-2, in the second set they played an entertaining tiebreak which she dominated, where Vekic levelled the match. In the final set, it went to a tiebreak, this time Pliskova was the winner.
