Swiatek is seeking a third French Open title in four years.

Iga Swiatek has clearly brushed off the second-round scare from Naomi Osaka, as seen in her complete rout of Anastasia Potapova, 6-0, 6-0, in a mere 40 minutes at the French Open 2024 fourth round. It was by far the quickest win of the top seed’s career. Swiatek is poised to win her third French Open title in four years.

On a cool day, Swiatek put on a clinical display against the hapless Potapova. In one of the shortest matches in the history of the WTA Tour, Swiatek won 48 of 58 points and was not taken to deuce even once. 

Swiatek became only the third player in the Open era to claim 6-0, 6-0 victories at Roland Garros in consecutive years. Gabriela Sabatini (1992-93) and Mary Pierce (1993-94) were the previous two players to accomplish that feat. In the 2023 season, Swiatek whitewashed Chinese player Wang Xinyu in the third round.

Iga Swiatek and Vondrousova will square off on Tuesday for a chance to progress to the semifinals. The Wimbledon champion held off qualifier Olga Danilovic and came from 4-1 down in the first set to win 6-4, 6-2. Vondrousova and Swiatek have not dropped more than a set en route to the last eight.

Iga Swiatek vs Marketa Vondrousova preview

All top four seeds in women’s singles have made it to the quarterfinals. Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina have made it comfortably. Swiatek did come uncomfortably close to an exit but has recouped strongly. Facing her in the semi-final is 2019 Roland Garros finalist Marketa Vondrousova. The 2019 final remains Vondrousva’s closest brush with victory in Paris.

It will either be Coco Gauff or Ons Jabeur, who will face Swiatek in the semifinals. Once past the semi-final hurdle, the Pole will be tantalizingly close to a third consecutive final of the season against Aryna Sabalenka. Swiatek was the victor on both previous counts in Madrid and Rome.

Head-to-head records

Matches – 3

Iga Swiatek – 3

Iga Swiatek has been a tough nut to crack for Marketa Vondrousova, as the Pole has won all three of their previous matches, including two in 2023. In their last meeting in the 2023 WTA Finals, Swiatek bageled Vondrousova in the second set to win 7-6(3), 6-0.

Prediction

The last time Swiatek and Vondrousova met on French clay, was in 2020 in the first round. It was another easy win for Swiatek when she won 6-1, 6-2 against the Czech player. Swiatek pips Vondrousova in their head-to-head on clay at 2-0. Vondrousova will seek to make amends for the 2020 defeat at the hands of the World No. #1. 

Swiatek is a solid 42-4 this season, while Vondrousova is 15–8. The Pole has an enviable 32-2 record at Roland Garros. Vondrousova trails the World No. #1 with an 18-6 win-loss record. Taking into account matches played on clay, Swiatek is on 18-1, and Vondrousova is 10-4.

The Pole continues to rack up the numbers, leading Vondrousova with 83.6% of service games won to the latter’s 63.2%. Swiatek has won 46.8% of return games played and converted 46.8% of breakpoint opportunities. Vondrousova has won 42.3% of her return games and converted 51.5% of possible breakpoint opportunities. 

With the dominant mood that Swiatek is in, another easy day will be the likely outcome.

Swiatek’s formidable record this season means she is all but certain to mount a successful French Open title defence. Playing on her favourite surface gives her an opportunity to extend her unbeaten run. Another clinical performance from the World No. #1 can be expected, this time at Vondrousova’s expense.

Result: Iga Swiatek to win in straight sets.
