WTA Indian Wells 2023: Iga Swiatek vs. Emma Raducanu Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2023 WTA Indian Wells tournament as Iga Swiatek takes on Emma Raducanu in the fourth round on Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek will hope to maintain her mesmeric title defense at Indian Wells as she comes up against a resurgent Emma Raducanu. Who will prevail?

Iga Swiatek vs. Emma Raducanu Match Preview

In a match played in breezy conditions, it was Iga Swiatek who found the right balance to fend off a spirited charge by Bianca Andreescu to reach the fourth round of Indian Wells. Swiatek has now a tour-leading 14th match in straight sets this year and it is looking increasingly ominous for the rest of the field this fortnight that they may just fall short to stop the Polish star.

Emma Raducanu, meanwhile, has sprung into life at Indian Wells. The 2021 US Open champion won her third match in a row and her first top-20 scalp of the season by beating Brazil’s Beatriz Haddad Maia in three sets. As crazy as it sounds, this is the first time Raducanu has reached the fourth round of a WTA 1000 and this is certainly her most fruitful week on the WTA Tour since shocking the tennis world at Flushing Meadows in 2021.

Iga Swiatek vs. Emma Raducanu Prediction and Pick

Iga Swiatek leads Emma Raducanu 1-0 in their head-to-head. That match was contested on indoor clay in Stuttgart last year where Swiatek ran out a comfortable straight-sets winner. While Raducanu has hit a purple patch in Indian Wells, Swiatek is miles above the Briton in every aspect imaginable. Take the Pole to win her 15th match in straight sets this season.
