Swiatek v Pliskova live stream and match preview | 2021 Italian Open Rome

French Open reigning champion Iga Swiatek takes on former World No. 1 Karolina Pliskova in the final of the Italian Open today at 13.30 pm (UK Time).

Iga Swiatek has won the French Open last year without dropping a single set in seven matches. She started this year with a disappointing early exit at the Australian Open but bounced back by winning the title in Adelaide. This is Swiatek’s best performance on clay this season after an early exit in the third round in Madrid two weeks ago. Iga’s most difficult match here in Rome was against Krejicikova in the third round, but she looked very solid against Svitolina and Gauff in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively.

We all know that Karolina Pliskova isn’t a clay specialist, but she seems to have an affinity for playing in Rome. This will be Karolina’s third straight final in Rome, although she has only won the title once, back in 2019. Last year, she was forced to withdraw due to injury after losing the first set 6-0 against Simona Halep. Pliskova has dropped just two sets in four matches in Rome this year and her most difficult clash was with Ostapenko when she had to fight back from one set down to win in a decisive tiebreaker.

Iga Swiatek is favourite to lift the trophy but we expect Pliskova to fight well today, so we’re backing Over 20.5 games at 17/20.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.

Elina Svitolina continues her run to the third title in Rome when she takes on Iga Swiatek today at 10.00 am (UK Time).

Iga Swiatek has only played six matches on clay this season, having won five of these. She only reached the Round of 16 in Madrid two weeks ago where she lost in straights sets against Ashleigh Barty. In Rome, Iga has played three matches so far, although her first-round clash with Riske ended towards the end of the first set, as the American was forced to withdraw due to a foot injury. Swiatek followed this up with a comfortable win over Keys (7-5, 6-1) but she was really tested by Krejicikova in the third round.

Elina Svitolina is a two-time former champion here in Rome and she looked great in this early part of the tournament so far. Svitolina fought back from one set down to beat Amanda Anisimova 2-1 in the opening round and then demolished Garbine Muguruza in the second round (6-4, 6-2). She has played very aggressively against both players, especially that both Anisimova and Muguruza are big hitters.

Over 20.5 games at a price of 8/11 seem the best option for this clash.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.

Garbine Muguruza and Elina Svitolina will square off in Rome today, as both players are still seeking consistency throughout this clay season.

Garbine Muguruza has only played four matches on clay this season, but that was due to an injury she suffered in Charleston at the beginning of March. She started her Rome campaign with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Patricia Tig, but then needed three sets to win over Bernarda Pera yesterday. Muguruza’s best performance here in Rome was reaching the Semi-finals back in 2016, 2017 and 2020.

We all know that Elina Svitolina won two titles here in Rome, back in 2017 and 2018, but her recent form on clay hasn’t been great. She has lost against Ashleigh Barty in the Semi-finals in Stuttgart towards the end of March, and then suffered an unexpected loss against Jil Belen Teichmann on the opening round of the Madrid Open. Furthermore, she had to come from a set down to beat Amanda Anisimova on the opening round of the Italian Open yesterday.

Elina Svitolina has won four of the last six meetings with Garbine Muguruza. We think the Ukrainian has enough to win today despite the fact that Garbine is slightly favorite. Elina Svitolina to win is priced at 11/10.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.

Serena Williams is finally back on the WTA tour as she takes on Nadia Podoroska today at the Italian Open.

Serena Williams hasn’t played any event since the Australian Open and it seems that she only preferred to play at Grand Slams lately. However, she is now coming to Rome on the back of a decent run of results on hard courts. She reached the Semi-finals in Melbourne at the Yarra Valley Classic back in February when she was forced to withdraw due to an injury and then lost in straight sets in the Semi-finals of the Aussie Open against Naomi Osaka. The last time when Serena competed here in Rome was in 2019 when she withdrew in the 2nd round against her sisters, Venus.

Nadia Podoroska already caused an upset here in Rome by beating Laura Siegemund yesterday after an entertaining three-set match. This was Podoroska’s first match on clay since her last year’s unbelievable performance at the French Open when she managed to reach the Semi-finals despite the fact she came as a qualifier. Prior to that loss against Iga Swiatek in the French Open Semi-finals, Nadia was on an amazing 13-match winning streak on clay.

Serena Williams is heavily favored to win, but we think that Nadia Podoroska can sneak a set here. Our prediction is Over 20.5 games at 4/5.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.

Daria Kasatkina will be looking for another good run here in Rome when he takes on Jessica Pegula today at 12.00pm (UK Time).

Daria Kasatkina has had an amazing start to 2021 as she has already won two titles, in Melbourne and St. Petersburg. She looked incredibly solid on hard courts, but not very consistent on clay surfaces. Daria has suffered defeats in early rounds in Istanbul and Madrid, but she always loved the Rome clay. The Russian has reached the round of 16 in four of her last five appearances in Rome, including last year when she played as a qualifier.

Similar to her opponent, Jessica Pegula has also had some impressive runs this year. The American did well to reach the Quarter-finals of the Aussie Open and the Semi-finals in Doha. She looked decent in Dubai too, but suffered a dramatic loss against Maria Sakkari. On clay courts, Pegula has only played in Madrid where she lost in the 3rd round against the eventual champion, Aryna Sabalenka.

Both players are nearly even this season in terms of match victories, but we expect Daria Kasatkina to go through at the price of 8/11.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
