Iga Swiatek v Martina Trevisan Head to Head
There have been two previous matches between Swiatek and Trevisan with both having won one. The first came at an ITF event in 2017 which Trevisan won on clay before Swiatek had her revenge at the qualifiers of the Birmingham Open.
Swiatek Sweeps Past Halep
Swiatek’s first three round results at this year’s French Open coming into her match against Simona Halep read:
- 6-1, 6-2
- 6-1, 6-4 and
- 6-3, 6-2
Not too many would have then thought her fourth round performance against Halep would get even better, with the Pole going on to win against the top seed, brilliantly-in-form and heavily favourite player. She dropped a mere three games this to earn herself a place in the quarterfinal, her first ever at a Grand Slam in her such a short career.
What made the win even more stunning was Halep failed to earn herself a single break-point in the match, while dropping her own serve four times to a youngster in just her second year of Grand Slam tennis.
Some of the winners Swiatek manufactured were breathtaking, others plain effective but in the end they were 30 in total as opposed to Halep’s 12. And she also came to the net nine times in the entire match, winning eight of them.
Here’s something interesting that Swiatek said after her match; at the previous French Open, Halep had beaten the Pole before losing to Amanda Anisimova. This year, Halep had avenged that defeat by beating Anisimova in the previous round but Swiatek completed the cycle by beating Halep and avenging the previous year’s defeat.
Swiatek would know, Anisimova had then gone on to lose the next match though!
Trevisan Teaches Bertens a Lesson
In a match which saw a total of 10 breaks of serve, Martina Trevisan managed to upset Kiki Bertens in straight sets and move to her first ever quarterfinal at a Grand Slam.
Trevisan got an early break of serve in the first set and then doubled her advantage to go 5-1 ahead. And then, probably hit by some nerves, she was broken twice while serving for the set, leaving Bertens to serve at 4-5 to level the set.
The Italian world number 159 broke back for the third time to seal the set 6-4.
The second set started on a similar note when Trevisan got the better of Bertens’ serve in the very first game but the Dutch world number eight got back into the encounter with a break to make it 3-3.
This was followed by a hold for Trevisan and three successive breaks of serve to end the set and the match in the Italian’s favour.
Earlier, Trevisan had come into the match with three qualifying wins which took her to only her second major main draw appearance, which was followed by wins over Camilla Giorgi, Cori Gauff and Maria Sakkari. And with another one over Bertens, her giant-killing run has already helped her break into the top 100 of the rankings.
How much further can she go though?
Swiatek v Trevisan Prediction and Tip
It’s not so much about the ranking difference but the form that Swiatek comes into this match with that makes her a huge favourite. Bet365 are currently offering 1/6 for her win, while a straight-set one is at 1/2. We could be in for bit of a ride though as the never-say-die attitude of Trevisan could help her push the Pole more than she has been so far.
Tip: Swiatek to win AND over 18.5 games in the match: 11/10 (bet365)
