The biggest match of the day will feature #1 seed Iga Swiatek who has yet to drop a match on the clay this season. She will take on lucky loser Gabriela Talaba. We at LWOT have the prediction for that match as well as all other happenings around the ground of Warsaw, including more predictions in a separate article. Who do you think will win?

WTA Warsaw Day 4 Predictions

Kristina Mladenovic vs Viktorija Golubic

Head-to-Head: first meeting

Both currently ranked outside of the top 100, Kristina Mladenovic and Viktorija Golubic are staring at a great opportunity to gain some much need ranking points. Both ladies won their round 1 matches in tough three-setters. Besides their most recent win, neither player has held much form over the last month. In a match I expect to go the distance, I give the slight edge to Golubic who has been a slightly better clay-court player over her career.
Prediction: Golubic in 3

Sara Errani vs Kateryna Kozlova

Head-to-Head: Errani 2-0 Kozlova

Qualifier Sara Errani has already spent six hours and 42 minutes on court in Warsaw. I think it is fair to question the fitness of the 35-year-old as she makes her way deeper into this tournament. Across the net will stand lucky loser Kateryna Kozlova. Errani bested Kozlova in a tight two-sets just over a month ago in Gaiba. I think this match should be tight as well, with the slight advantage in favor of Errani. She holds a 15-8 record on the clay this season.

Iga Swiatek vs Gabriela Talaba

Head-to-Head: first meeting

World #1 Iga Swiatek bounced back in a major way after losing her 37-match win streak earlier this month in London. She bested her compatriot Magdalena Frech 6-1, 6-2 to start her Warsaw campaign, winning 86 percent of her first serve points. Swiatek is set to face lucky loser Gabriela Talaba who took 2 hours and 41 minutes to win her first-round match. Although Talaba has had relative success on the clay this season, the gap between her and Swiatek is massive. I expect the World #1 to win this match with ease.
Prediction: Swiatek in 2
