Sorana Cirstea to Cover +6.5 Games
Iga Swiatek has obliterated almost every opponent in her path. Excluding walkovers, she has played 18 matches since the start of the season, and won 15 of them in straight sets. While we expect this to be another straight sets victory for Iga, we don’t think she’ll cover the -6.5 games spread. For one, Sorana Cirstea has exceeded expectations in this tournament, defeating players like Madison Keys and Caroline Garcia en route to the quarter-final. Furthermore, the only other time these players met, Cirstea held her own against Swiatek, winning one set. That said, we believe that Sorana Cirstea will win up to six games in this match.
Over 17.5 Total Games
We’ve already established that these players played out a three-setter the last time they met. Furthermore, that match went comfortably over 27 games. We are banking on Cirstea to win at least six games, which should take this match over 18.5 games.
Iga Swiatek vs Sorana Cirstea Preview
Our predictions for Swiatek vs Cirstea have been established. Now we would like to take a look at both players’ performances so far in this competition.
Iga Swiatek’s dominance continued with a straight sets victory over Emma Raducanu. She didn’t have too much trouble against the former US Open champion; as she converted four of 10 break points, whilst surrendering just four games. Swiatek will set her sights on a place in the semi-final of this tournament; and she’ll fancy her chances against Sorana Cirstea.
Cirstea on the other hand, needed almost two and a half hours in order to defeat Caroline Garcia in the round of 16. The Romanian has had an impressive run so far, dropping just one set in four matches. This will be a tricky fixture for Cirstea, as she faces one of the toughest players on the WTA Tour. It’ll be interesting to see if she can pull off one of the biggest upsets of her career today.
