Iga Swiatek v Su-Wei Hsieh Head to Head
The two ladies have met just once on the tour in the 2020 French Open. Swiatek won that second-round affair in straight sets to move on to win the title.
Swiatek, Hoping to Build a Legacy on Grass
20-year-old Iga Swiatek has already achieved more than what many players can only dream of. With a Grand Slam title under her belt already along with two singles titles this season, the Pole has all the makings of becoming a top-ranked player in the near future.
After a couple of fourth-round stints in the Gippsland Trophy and Australian Open, Swiatek conquered the Gippsland Trophy beating Belinda Bencic in the final. In the clay swing, she won the Italian Open where she beat some big guns like Barbora Krejcikova, Elina Svitolina, and Karolina Pliskova to win the WTA 1000 event.
In the French Open, she reached the quarterfinal and thus cemented her position in the top 10.
However, the grass swing seemed to have completely thrown her off her game. She featured in Eastbourne International last week where she was beaten right in the second round by Daria Kasatkina. Even at Wimbledon, she hasn’t made it past the first round yet but then again, she competed in her maiden Grass Slam only in 2019.
Hsieh Seeking Reprieve in London
It is fair to say that the 35-year-old Su-Wei Hsieh has been professionally playing tennis for about the same time as Swiatek has been alive. With that kind of massive experience, Hsieh would have definitely fancied her chances to beat Swiatek and start well in Wimbledon.
However, the World No. 69 has lost her last five matches in a row – all of which came in the first round. She went through the entire clay swing without picking up a single win while in the Birmingham Classic a few weeks back, Marie Bouzkova defeated her in the opener.
Her last decent run of any kind was the Australian Open where she reached the quarterfinal after upsetting Bianca Andreescu, Sara Errani, and Marketa Vondrousova.
Hsieh is definitely low on momentum and form but that does not mean she cannot turn up the heat. As a two-time Wimbledon doubles champion – last winning this title in 2019 with Barbora Strycova, the Taiwan-born player is more than capable of navigating her way on the grass.
Swiatek v Hsieh Prediction and Tip
Swiatek will start this game as the odds-on favourite but that can change soon if Hsieh manages to dig deeper and find some confidence. This may not be an easy match for the Polish star.
