Swiatek vs Muchova Prediction

It wasn’t exactly smooth sailing for Swiatek in her first match at Montreal. Fresh off a tourney win in Poland, the top-ranked woman in the world had her serve broken twice in the the first set against Czechia’s Karolina Pliskova, in a set that went to tiebreak.

Swiatek prevailed, then went on to finish the match in a breeze, winning 7-6 (6), 6-2 on Wednesday.

She’ll be going up against 14th seed Karolina Muchova, who topped Sorana Cirstea 7-5, 6-4 in Round 2 play. Muchova opened the tournament with a 7-6 (6), 6-2 win over Anastasia Potapova.

This will be the third meeting between these two, who each have a win, with both matches on clay.

The most recent was at the final of this year’s French Open, with Swiatek taking the major in a match that went the distance, 6-2, 5-7, 6-4. Muchova won the first meeting in Prague in 2019, winning a First Round match in three sets, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

With both already having played a tiebreak in this tourney, and their (short) history of going the distance, that’s an awfully generous total of just 19.5 games.

Pick: Over 19.5 (-125)

Stephens vs Rybakina Prediction

If Swiatek suffered a scare, it was full on red alert for the 3rd-ranked Rybakina in her first match of the tourney. Rybakina dropped a first-set tiebrak, then needed to win a second-set tiebreak to eventually put away Jennifer Brady 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5), 6-3.

Stephens has also just played a single match, after opponent Victoria Azarenka was forced to withdraw from their Round 2 match due to injury.

The American did top Anhelina Kalininina 6-4, 7-6 (2) in her Round 1 matchup.

This will be the first meeting between Rybakina and Stephens, but the Kazakhstani star has a distinct advantage when it comes to surface. Rybakina is an impressive 22-5 in her hard court matches this year, while Stephens is just 5-8.

However, with Rybakina’s slow start, and the fact that three of Stephens’ last four matches have gone the distance, I’m again targeting the total.

Pick: Over 20.5 (-120)

Bouzkova vs Kasatkina Prediction

We finish with 10th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, who’s played two clean matches, topping Elise Martens and Anna Blinkova in straight sets.

She now draws unseeded Marie Bouzkova, who upended 5th-seeded Carolina Garcia in three sets: 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.

It was just Bouzkova’s third win against a tournament seed this year, and two of them have come against Garcia.

Kasatkina has the first two wins in this head-to-head, winning in the 2021 final of the Phillip Island Trophy Melbourne event 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. She also bested Bouzkova in Ostrava in 2020, winning 6-4, 5-7, 7-5.

Both have losing records on hard court this season, though, with Bouzkova at 8-10 and Kasatkina at 8-9. I don’t know if Bouzkova wins, but I think she plays Kasatkina tough.

Pick: Bouzkova +2.5 (-105)
