Iga Swiatek vs Beatriz Haddad Maia: Preview
Iga Swiatek starts her North American swing quite comfortably recording a 6-1, 6-2 win over Ajla Tomljanovic in the second round as she had been granted a first-round bye due to her seeding. The Pole has been in great form throughout the season and with a solid performance on hardcourts at the start of the season, she will look to replicate them in the coming months as well.
Beatriz Haddad Maia has been in great form this season and showed it during the second round match as well defeating local girl and home favourite Leylah Fernandez defeating the Canadian 7-6(4), 6-1. She had earlier defeated Martina Trevisan in 3-sets to start her campaign in Toronto. After a brilliant clay and grass campaign this season, she will look to continue the form on hardcourts where she had suffered at the start of the season.
This will be the first-ever meeting between the two players hence the head-to-head stands at 0-0.
Iga Swiatek vs Beatriz Haddad Maia: Prediction
Iga has a career hardcourt record of 76-26 while being 27-3 on the surface this year and having a 49-5 season record coming into the match. Sabalenka is 174-77 on hardcourts across his career and has a 16-8 record for the season on the surface while being 40-15 for the season across all surfaces. Looking at these numbers and their recent form, Swiatek looks like the one edging to the quarter-finals but not without a massive resistance and fight from Beatriz.
Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in three sets.
