Swiatek is only 18 years old, and she has already made her debut in the top 50 and is gaining experience playing in the WTA tour. It should be noted that the tennis player has repeatedly performed in the final stages of prestigious tournaments, where she surprised everyone not only with cold-bloodedness but also with a mature game.
Iga acts on the court with her head, she takes a lot of time to prepare for each opponent and tries to calculate her every combination. The representative of Poland promotes aggressive tennis, she focuses on her cannon serve, and the rally is able to complete in a few strokes. In addition, Swiatek confidently breaks through both forehand and backhand.
The Polish tennis team clearly emphasizes not the number of tournaments, but the quality of performances. In addition to the start in Melbourne, Swiatek played only three matches for the national team in the Federation Cup this season. All three games against not-so-famous rivals were successful for Iga.
In recent years, Vekic has radically changed his game. After all, before she closed her eyes and tried to punch out with every blow. But two years ago, the Croat began working with former coach Kerber and radically changed her game. Now the girl has a balance between defense and attack, so she no longer sprinkles unforced errors (if she shoots, then only from the exit position). Thanks to such changes, Donna began to play at a completely different level and made her debut in the top 25.
The last appearance on the court at Donna Vekich was in St. Petersburg two weeks ago. She was able to go one round then, losing in the second match at the Alexandrova tournament (1-6, 5-7). The Croatian tennis player could not protect points in St. Petersburg and left the top 20 of the WTA rating. Donna is now in the 23rd position.
She performed in Doha Vekic only two times in her career. I was able to win only one game. Last season at the start she lost to Sevastova (3-6, 4-6).

Iga Swiatek vs Donna Vekic Predictions
In the upcoming match, it is extremely difficult to decide who is more likely to win. After all, Swiatek after the Australian Open did not really have a game practice, and Vekic is in decline. But one thing is clear, the girls act in approximately the same style, so it is unlikely that anyone will be able to dominate throughout the match and win an easy victory. So the total is bigger.
