Iga Swiatek is a force to reckon with in the world of tennis. However, she hasn’t been in the best of forms lately. After getting knocked out in the opening round at Cincinnati, Swiatek had good but not sensational outings at the US open and Ostrava Open.

Undoubtedly, the World 4 would be itching to make an impact at the Indian Wells Open. She has started off in an emphatic style in the tournament. Swiatek defeated Petra Martić in straight sets without much hassle in her opening round which would have given her a lot of confidence.

On the other hand, Veronika Kudermetova has also started well in the Indian Wells Open. She thrashed Ludmilla Samsonova in her first round with relative ease. However, she now has a monumental task ahead of her in the name of Iga Swiatek.

Veronika Kudermetova has started off nicely at Indian Wells. Moreover, she stepped into the tournament after a moderately successful outing at Luxembourg Open. However, her journey at the Indian Wells Open might come to an end in the second round only as Swiatek will walk into the encounter as a firm favorite.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in straight sets.
