MATCH PREVIEW

Swiatek On Course to Retain Title

 

The last woman to successfully defend the women's singles title at Roland Garros was Justine Henin 14 years ago. Iga Swiatek is in the form that suggests her second French Open title is only three matches away. The eighth seed takes on Maria Sakkari, seeded 17th for a place in the semi-final against either Cori Gauff or Barbora Krejcikova.

These two players are the only top 20 seeds left in the tournament. While other seeds have been losing or retiring for various reasons, Swiatek has been making her way through the draw without a great deal of difficulty. The links between her and that 2007 Justine Henin title win already exist. Swiatek won the title last year without dropping a set and the last time that happened was achieved by Henin that year.

The Pole hasn't lost a set this year at Roland Garros either. Could she not just win the title two years in a row but again without losing a set, it's possible.  The win here last year was her first ever main tour title. Two more have followed since then, the most recent being the Rome Masters.

In this defence of her French Open title, Swiatek, who has just turned 20 has again shown her love of Roland Garros. It seems a long time since 2019 when she lost to Simona Halep in the French Open and won just one game. Only 20 games have been lost by her so far in this tournament and 11 have come in two sets. The last round saw her beat the promising Marta Kostyuk 6-3 6-4.

Tough Task for Sakkari

 

Maria Sakkari is facing Iga Swiatek for the first time in her career. Could it be a golden year for Greece with Sakkari and Tsitsipas winning the singles titles? One is more likely than another and it's Tsitsipas. Sakkari is ranked 18th in the world (nine below her opponent) and that's four places higher than at the start of 2021.

Sakkari has made it to the last eight of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career. Her previous best has been the fourth round in the 2020 Australian and US Opens. This year has seen her get to the last four in Abu Dhabi beating Cori Gauff, Garbine Muguruza and Sofia Kenin. Another semi-final was reached at the Miami Open with a straight sets win over Naomi Osaka.

Her clay court season hasn't been that great before arriving at Roland Garros. The best she's managed has been the last 16 but Sakkari has hit top form in the French Open dropping only one set. That was the middle set in her third round win over 14th seeded Elise Mertens. Round four saw her get another win over Sofia Kenin losing just four games. This is an interesting match and Swiatek will need to be near to her best to get the win. Back her to win the match and most likely in two close sets. A bet on over 18.5 games can be a winner.
