WTA Indian Wells Day 4 Predictions including Amanda Anisimova vs Camila Giorgi

WTA young gun Amanda Anisimova in action

The remainder of the top WTA seeds take to the courts on Day 4 in Indian Wells. Despite the October playing date the heat is still clearly affecting the players but the tennis is already proving to be top class.

There is a huge slate of matches on Day 4. As always, we are sharing our thoughts on every match with you. Who do you think will win?

WTA Indian Wells Day 4 Predictions

Karolina Pliskova vs Magdalena Frech

Head-to-Head Record: First meeting

This isn’t as straightforward as it may first look. Pliskova has turned it on somewhat in the second half of the season, but once again failed in the latter stages of a grand slam when looking set to challenge. Frech has won a couple of titles in the last few months and actually has a better record on hard courts than the Czech in the last year as well. However, the Pole is still ranked outside the Top 100 and there should still be enough of a quality gap between the two that it is difficult to see Pliskova getting broken by Frech.

Ons Jabeur vs Anastasija Sevastova

Head-to-Head Record: Jabeur 1-1 Sevastova

At the time of their previous meetings Jabeur had yet to crack the Top 100 and was still struggling with consistency in her performances, sometimes from shot to shot. Sevastova was also a top 20 player, but now they have almost completely swapped positions. The fact that Jabeur more than held her own in those previous meetings gives me confidence that she can show her improvement here and dominate this match-up. Sevastova loves to run and battle but I feel that the Tunisian will have too much guile and quality in the end.

Anett Kontaveit vs Martina Trevisan

Head-to-Head Record: Kontaveit 1-0 Trevisan

This has an argument to being the match with the most in-form pairing. Kontaveit has won two titles in the last two months and Trevisan has also reached two finals in that time, winning one and losing another. The difference is that the Estonian won both of hers at WTA level on hard court whilst Trevisan was battling away on the ITF circuit on clay. The Italian would cause a lot of problems to a lot of players in the tournament but the confidence that Kontaveit is playing with at the moment should be too good.

Amanda Anisimova vs Camila Giorgi

Head-to-Head Record: First meeting

I quite fancy the American to come through here. Giorgi obviously had that magnificent triumph this year in Montreal and the question was asked then, will this be a peak or can she build on this? The fact that the final against Karolina Pliskova is still her last win maybe tells the story for itself. Anisimova herself though has had her share of being in a slump after a series of great results in 2019 but there are signs that the talented youngster is coming out of that now. I like her chances of continuing that rise by winning this match off the back of strong serving.
