Our favourite Iga Swiatek vs Marta Kostyuk – match predictions

Swiatek will be fresh after her quarter-final win over Caroline Wozniacki, especially after the Dane had to withdraw from the match after the first set. On the other hand, Kostyuk impressed with her 2-0 win over Anastasia Potapova.

2-0 to Iga Swiatek @ 9/25 (1.36)

Kostyuk has yet to drop a set at the BNP Paribas Open but has not faced a rival of Swiatek’s calibre. The Polish ace has gone through a similar run and not conceded more than four games at the Tennis Gardens. As they lock horns in the semi-finals, we believe it will be Swiatek who comes out on top while keeping her streak in tact.

Under 18.5 Games @ 6/5 (2.20)

While Kostyuk has been made to sweat hard, the same cannot be said about Swiatek. The world number 1 has reigned supreme against everyone, not conceding more than four games to her rivals in any of her games at Indian Wells. Kostyuk will be found wanting against her class and we are backing a short fixture, one that finishes with under 18.5 games being played.

She got the better of Caroline Wozniacki in the quarter-finals, the Dane retiring after conceding the first set and trailing 1-0 in the second.
