Swiatek vs Vondrousova – match predictions

This quarter-final match should be a pretty awesome contest. After all, you’ve got two in-form players who will be desperate to reach the semi-finals of the 2023 Western & Southern Open. Yet only one of them will make it. And based on a range of factors such as form, head-to-head, and suitability for the hard courts of Cincinnati, I’ve got a couple of tips for you to follow. 

Western & Southern Open 2023

The two betting markets showcased below are deemed to have a decent chance of pulling through, and the odds are competitive enough to justify the pick.

Vondrousova to win a set – yes

If you look at the performances of Vondrousova in the Cincinnati Open so far, she hasn’t lost a set. Additionally, she’s faced some tough opponents. She’s had to beat Siniakova, Potapova, and Stephens in the last round, and she hasn’t dropped a set in any of them. Furthermore, Vondrousova likes the fast hard courts, so she has a great chance of snagging a set today.

Vondrousova +5.5 games handicap

In an ideal world, we’d like Vondrousova to secure the first set, as this would give this next prediction a huge chance of pulling through. But let it be noted – even if Vondrousova drops the first set, this market could still be a winner as long as she pushes Swiatek close. Of course, I have faith that she can challenge the world number one today, especially with her ‘lefty’ game, which could make things awkward for the Polish player.

Before placing any wagers on this one, why not take a look into how they are both shaping up via a quick preview?

Swiatek is obviously the most dangerous player on the WTA Tour when she is playing well. She’s the world number 1, she has 15 WTA titles to her name, and she definitely likes the quick hard courts of North America. However, she lost in the semi-finals of the Canadian Open last week, and she went three sets with Zheng in her previous round in Cincinnati.

As I’m sure you’ll recall, Vondrousova won Wimbledon just last month. This will have boosted her confidence immensely, and she has proved that this wasn’t a freak result in recent weeks. I say this as she reached the ‘round of 16’ last week, and she is now in the quarter-finals of the Western & Southern Open today.

Swiatek vs Vondrousova head to head

The head-to-head between these two doesn’t exactly provide much to work with when determining the best markets to pick. They’ve played just once in the past, and this was in 2020 at the French Open. Swiatek won this match 6-1 6-2.
