MATCH PREVIEW

Williams Still Chasing her Dream

 

Could that record equalling Grand Slam title be on its way for Serena Williams. The American is the only top ten seed left in the bottom half of the draw. Serena takes on Elena Rybakina (seeded 21st) and the winner of this match has a quarter final match against either Victoria Azarenka or Anastasia Pavlyuchenko to look forward too.

Williams last won a Grand Slam title in 2017 and has been battling to equal the record number of Grand Slam women's singles ever since. Four finals have been reached  but no wins and Margaret Court remains the overall leader. Williams has won the French Open on three previous occasions. The first of those wins was 19 years ago, the last one in 2015. The final was reached the following year but since then Williams has never made it to the last eight.

The 39-year-old started 2021 well with two semi-finals in Australia. The Australian Open is the last Grand Slam that she's won and it was going well this year. Williams beat both Aryna Sabalenka and Simona Halep, before losing to eventual winner Naomi Osaka in the last four. Then came a long break and she wasn't back on court until the Rome Masters in May.

That wasn't a successful return, losing her first match to Nadia Podoroska. Another poor defeat followed in Parma with a loss to Katerina Sianakova. The only player beaten on clay this year before arriving at Roland Garros was Lisa Pagato who was ranked 572nd at the time, so not the greatest of scalps.

This week has been a lot better for her though. Williams admits that she "needed to win tough matches" in Paris to improve. "I needed to win sets. I needed to win being down," she added when speaking after her third round win over Danielle Collins. That wish to win from being down came hasn't happened yet. Williams did have to go to three sets to get past Mihaela Buzarnescu in round two, but won the first set. That's the only set she's dropped on her way to the fourth round.

Best Week Ever for Rybakina

 

Elena Rybakina is the world number 22 but in the absence of Simona Halep, seeded 21st for this French Open. The 21-year-old had won eight and lost nine of her 17 matches played this week. She has been slipping down the rankings though, February 2020 saw her in 17th position. Her run to the fourth round will see her back in the top 20 when the new list is published.

2021 began well for her with a quarter final in Abu Dhabi. The Australian Open didn't go well for her though losing in the second round to Fiona Ferro. Rybakina had previously never made it past the second round at Roland Garros. This is a big week for her though as it's the first time she has reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam.

Before this week, Rybakina was 2-3 on clay with no wins over a player ranked in the top 40. So far at Roland Garros, Rybakina is yet to drop a set. It's not been the hardest of draws though with victories over Elsa Jacquemot, Nao Hibino and Elina Vesnina. This is her first match against Williams, who has earned $93 million more than her in career earnings. Williams can get the win here in straight sets.
