Iga Swiatek v Jessica Pegula Head to Head
They are 1-1 from their previous meetings. Pegula won in Washington in 2019, while Swiatek won this year in Miami.
Swiatek Rebounds to Beat Zheng
World no. 1 Iga Swiatek dropped a set for the first time since the Stuttgart semifinal, but came back in the fourth round contest to beat China’s Qinwen Zheng and extend her winning streak to 32 matches.
The Polish player, who last lost a match in the second round in Dubai, has since then won five consecutive titles in Qatar, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome.
She wasn’t quite at her best in the last 16 match against the World no. 74, throwing away a 2-5 lead and squandering five set points in the first set, which headed to a tiebreak. Swiatek built a 2-5 lead in the tiebreak but once again couldn’t keep the lead intact as Zheng won five consecutive points to take the first set.
In the second, the Polish player, who turns 21 on Tuesday, made a solid comeback, dropping just eight of 35 total points, she bagelled the Chinese opponent.
She also began the third with a break of serve and despite some resistance from Zheng, closed out the match 6-7 (5-7), 6-0, 6-2 in two hours and 45 minutes.
The 2020 French Open champion has now reached a third consecutive quarterfinal at Roland Garros. She was also a semifinalist at the Australian Open this year. She had cruised past her first three opponents in Lesia Tsurenko, Alison Riske and Danka Kovinić respectively, but faced her toughest match in over a month on Monday.
Pegula Reaches First Roland Garros QF
Jessica Pegula also fought back from a set down to oust Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu and advance to a second consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinal.
The American, who had reached the last eight at the Australian Open for the second straight year in January, needed two hours and eight minutes to battle past the Romanian on Monday.
Both players had six break point opportunities in the match, with Pegula converting four and saving four.
She went a break down in the very first game of the opening set, but got it back in the eighth game.
However, Begu broke her back immediately to restore the lead and then closed out the first set. Pegula bounced back in the second set, not facing a single break point but breaking her opponent twice to force the decider.
She saved all four break points that she faced in the third set and converted the only oportunity that she held to win the contest 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.
The win follows victories over Wang Qiang, Anhelina Kalinina and Tamara Zidansek in the first three rounds respectively, with the match against Kalinina also going the distance.
Swiatek v Pegula Prediction and Tip
While Pegula is a tough opponent, it will be a huge challenge for her to stop the in-form Swiatek. The Polish player, despite her scratchy performance in the fourth round, will be expected to go through.
