Iga Swiatek v Kaja Juvan Head to Head

Their only previous encounter came at the Gippsland Trophy earlier this year where Swiatek needed three sets to get past her opponent.

Swiatek Begins Title Defence

She was just 19 when she won the French Open title last season and Swiatek will enter this year’s edition with as much confidence as you would expect from her just immediately after previous year’s victory.

That’s because her performance on clay this season has been much to talk about, having won eight of her nine matches on this surface.

More vitally, Swiatek won the Italian Open title two weeks ago, with her victory in the final of that tournament making everyone sit up and take notice of the Pole. Again.

Having beaten Elina Svitolina and Cori Gauff earlier, Swiatek played Karolina Pliskova in the final of the Italian Open earlier this month and blanked the former world number one 6-0, 6-0 to lift the title. Some might argue Pliskova’s form hasn’t been the best in recent times and yet, here she was, playing in the final of a WTA 1000 event after all.

Swiatek doesn’t just start off as a favourite in this match alone, she is a tournament favourite as well.

Juvan’s Struggles on Clay Surprising

For a player who broke into the top 100 on the WTA charts on the back of her performances on clay, Juvan has struggled to get going on this surface this season.

She bowed out of the first qualifying round at the Madrid Open, then lost an opener at an ITF competition after that and then fell to Yulia Putintseva in the first round of the Belgrade Open – all of which were defeats on clay. Juvan hasn’t won a match on that surface.

Speaking of what Juvan has done on clay in the past, it’s difficult to look past her ITF record where she has won seven titles on red dirt. She hasn’t won anything else on any other surfaces.

Some of her current form could be down to her retirement from the second retirement at the Monterrey Open where she felt ill but for a player who was just getting started with some form, having also reached round three at the Australian Open that’s just intriguing to see.

And now, as luck would have it, Juvan faces the bookmaker’s favourite in her opener.

Swiatek v Juvan Prediction and Tip

This is an interesting one in that Juvan is a whopping 15/2 to win this while Swiatek starts out at 3/50. Expect Swiatek to drub her opponent.
