2-1 to Iga Swiatek

There is no player who has the same pedigree as Iga Swiatek on the WTA tour. Veronika Kudermetova has learnt this the hard way, succumbing to three straight-sets victories. While previously, the Russian ace has withered against her rivals, the new version does not let up. Each of her victories in Madrid Open has come in three sets and although the bookmakers have not given her any chance against Swiatek, she will not give up that easily. Kudermetova’s defeat in Stuttgart against Coco Gauff also came in three sets and we will see a hard battle in this duel.

Iga Swiatek vs Veronika Kudermetova Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.

Iga Swiatek

Despite her young age, the Polish professional has already won three Grand Slam singles titles: the French Open in 2020 and 2022, and the US Open in 2022. With Roland Gaross right around the corner, Swiatek has more on her mind. She triumphed in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and after failing to participate in the 2022 edition of the Madrid Open, is making up for the lost opportunity. If she continues in this fashion, she might be in line for another L’Equipe Champion of Champions award in 2023.

Veronika Kudermetova

Veronika Kudermetova has achieved remarkable results in 2023, belatedly reaching her first WTA 1000 semifinal at the Mutua Madrid Open. It has been a prickly path, where Kudermetova was forced to defeat four opponents in three-set matches, including last year’s runner-up Jessica Pegula. The Russian has shown great resilience and confidence in her game, as well as a unique recovery method involving beer. This all will be put to the test as she continues her search for a first win over Swiatek in the fourth attempt.
