Katie Swan vs Belinda Bencic Prediction and Odds: Wimbledon 2023

Katie Swan vs Belinda Bencic – Match Predictions

Belinda Bencic is a former Top 5 player in the world and Swan will have a tough task searching for her first win at Wimbledon.

Belinda Bencic -3.5 games

Katie Swan will have the support of the home crowd at Wimbledon but that will not make a difference against Bencic. The Swiss player faced early exits the last two times she was at Wimbledon and will not miss another opportunity to try to get back among the Top 10 players in the world. Bencic is much more experienced and will start strong in this match which will eventually lead her to a comfortable win by covering the -3.5 games spread.

Under 21.5 games

This will probably be an one-direction match with Bencic having full control of the play and the score. She is simply on another level comparing to Swan and the Brit will not be able to stay in long in the match which will eventually finish with under 21.5 games.
