Swiatek vs Ruse Prediction:
Swiatek is currently in a class of her own, and she is the overwhelming favorite to retain her title. She is on a 21-match winning streak and has demonstrated her dominance on clay as well. However, because this is her first match after a short break, she may be rusty, and Ruse will undoubtedly take advantage of this. Swiatek, on the other hand, should have an easy outing.
Prediction: Iga Swiatek will win in straight sets.
