Iga Swiatek vs Tatjana Maria prediction
Though Swiatek is nearly unbeatable on clay, she struggles a lot on grass courts. She has won Grand Slam titles on clay and hard courts and in the past, but she would only make it past the fourth round at the grass-court major. She has a 6-5 win-loss record on the surface. And though Maria will be difficult to beat on the surface, her consistency issue can help Swiatek win the match to advance to the next round.
