Iga Swiatek and Bianca Andreescu meet in the quarterfinals of the 2022 tennis Italian Open.

Iga Swiatek is coming off a straight set win over Victoria Azarenka that took 17 games to decide. In the victory, Swiatek won 52 percent of her first serve points and 54 percent of her second serve points. Swiatek won 53 percent of her total service points and converted on seven of her 11 break points. Swiatek wasn’t great with her serve and that includes being broken four times and hitting three double faults, but she still found a way to prevail. Swiatek has now won 34 of her last 35 sets, simply a ridiculous stretch of tennis. Swiatek looks to make her fifth career WTA 1000 semifinal appearance. Swiatek is a perfect 4-0 in WTA 1000 quarterfinal matches. Swiatek has won six straight matches on clay court.

Bianca Andreescu is coming off a straight set win over Petra Martic that took 20 games to decide. In the victory, Andreescu won 68 percent of her first serve points and 52 percent of her second serve points. Andreescu won 63 percent of her total service points and converted on three of her four break points. Andreescu got 72 percent of her first serves in play and has quietly won five of her last six matches, possibly getting ahead of the curve in her comeback attempt. Andreescu looks to make her fourth career WTA 1000 semifinal appearance. Andreescu is 3-1 in previous WTA 1000 quarterfinal matches. Andreescu has nine career wins over top-10 players, with one of those wins coming this year. Andreescu has won five of her last six matches on clay court.

There’s no match history between these two players.

Andreescu is a feisty player who is capable of competing in a match like this when she has everything working. The Canadian will put up a fight. However, there’s no betting against Swiatek with the stretch she’s enjoying. Swiatek isn’t close to losing sets these days, let alone matches. Swiatek is in the sort of form that you just ride it out until it runs dry.

Give me Swiatek, and I’ll probably side with her in straight sets to shave down the price.
