Iga Swiatek vs Elina Svitolina: 2024 Dubai Championships - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Iga Swiatek is on a roll right now, but what will happen when she faces Elina Svitolina at the 2024 Dubai Championships?

There is not much Swiatek can do wrong right now because she's on an active winning streak and will look to keep it going this week. It all started last week with the title run in Doha, but even the first match in Dubai was pretty good.

It wasn't perfect, but she won the match in two sets, which is all that a player can hope for. Her next match should be better, but it's against a tough opponent in Svitolina, so let's see what might happen in this meeting. Svitolina started well as well, so she will certainly be a tricky opponent who will give it her all.


Swiatek and Svitolina played only twice so far, which is interesting, and the H2H score is 1-1. The first time they played was in Rome in 2021, and Swiatek was able to win that match in two sets.

The next time they met was last year at Wimbledon, and Svitolina actually won that match, which makes this one quite interesting. There is an added motivation for the Polish player to win the match due to how that Wimbledon match went.

Doing it is easier said than done, though, because Svitolina is a pretty good player who can play a tough game. She's generally quite good at countering the hitting of another player, so Swiatek will need to be really sharp to win the match.

Conditions should favor Swiatek a bit more, and I think that she'll ultimately win, though I would n't be shocked if she has similar issues to the one she had against Stephens.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in two sets.
