Iga Swiatek vs Petra Martic – Match Predictions

Over 17.5 Games

After defeating the 2021 Roland Garros champion, Petra Martic is set to play against the 2020 and 2022 Roland Garros champion. Booking a place in the semi-finals will not be easy as Swiatek is the woman in form but will be jaded after finishing her Round of 16 duel at 1 am. The world number 1 overcame Ekaterina Alexandrova in three sets and Martic will want to test her resolve in their quarter-final meeting. Martic’s win over Barbora Krejcikova saw her need a tiebreaker to force this match. Based on this, we are expecting to see Over 17.5 Games in this duel.

2-1 to Iga Swiatek

The last time these ladies met, it was humbling in straight sets for Petra Martic. The Croatian star is an improved player since. Martic has won eight out of her last 10 meetings with the top 20 players, a significant improvement from her eight-match losing streak against them in 2022. Swiatek has laid waste to everyone who has stood in her path and Martic faces a similar fate. But it will not be as easy as many would expect. With fatigue bound to catch up as Swiatek plays her eighth match on clay, we expect to see a three-set affair in this quarter-final affair.
