Ons Jabeur vs. Iga Swiatek
Why is Ons Jabeur a good bet to beat Iga Swiatek?
Jabeur had been showing signs that she was due for a fall. Ons required 3 sets versus 18-seed Veronika Kudermetova to make it to the quarterfinals. At the quarterfinals, Jabeur required another 3 sets to get by unseeded Ajla Tomljanovic.
Jabeur’s opponent in the semifinals, Caroline Garcia, had dominated. Garcia hadn’t lost a set during the tournament. So it was a surprise when Jabeur dusted Garcia in straight sets 6-1, 6-3. No doubt, Ons can beat Iga Swiatek.
Why is Iga Swiatek a good bet versus Ons Jabeur?
A couple of times during this tournament, Iga Swiatek has had to rally. That’s what you do when you’re the best women’s tennis player on the planet. Swiatek lost the first set to Jule Neimeier. Iga rallied to win 2 straight sets and send Neimeier home to Germany. Then against Jessica Pegula, Swiatek had to win a second set tiebreaker.
In her semifinals victory over Aryna Sabalenka, Iga dropped the first set 3-6. It looked as if Sabalenka was on her way to an upset win. Not only did Swiatek rally, she dusted Sabalenka 6-1, 6-4 in the next two sets.
Ons Jabeur vs. Iga Swiatek Final Betting Analysis
This will be the fifth time Jabeur and Swiatek have faced off since 2019. Swiatek won the first match, Jabeur won the next couple. This year, Ons and Iga threw down at the Rome Master. The match happened over clay. Swiatek got the victory after winning both sets 6-2.
Swiatek is excellent on clay. This year, Iga took the French Open after beating Coco Gauff at the finals at Roland-Garros. Swiatek’s form over clay can’t be questioned. But the US Open doesn’t happen over clay. The last time Jabeur and Swiatek threw down over a hard surface like what they play over at Flushing Meadows, Ons took the win and it wasn’t all that close. Jabeur beat Swiatek 6-3, 6-3 at the 2021 Cincinnati Masters. Ons can repeat the performance from 2021 on Saturday.
We can’t question Swiatek’s drive and overall tennis skills. But the way Jabeur so easily dispatched of Garcia in the semis speaks volumes. Ons Jabeur upsets Iga Swiatek and wins the US Open.
