From Iga Świątek‘s relentless dominance to teenager Coco Gauff’s first appearance in a Grand Slam final…
What Roland Garros 2022 Left on the WTA
No One Can Beat Iga Świątek
The 21-year-old Pole dropped just a set on her way to winning her second title at the Paris event. Another huge display of power and excellence on the part of the player, who is now riding a 35-game winning streak.
With the retirement of Ash Barty and the absence of Serena Williams, Iga Świątek represents the present and future of women’s tennis. Can she win Wimbledon?
Coco Gauff Reaches Her First Grand Slam Final
At just 18 years old, Gauff made a splash by reaching the women’s draw final of the second major tournament of the season.
Although she served the final loss to Świątek on a silver platter, the American made herself heard and showed that she has enough tennis to rub shoulders with any player in the WTA Top 10.
Is Coco the New Serena Williams?
Garbiñe Muguruza’s New Disappointment
The Caracas-born tennis player again starred in a first-round loss in a big event, this time against veteran Kaia Kanepi. Her career is definitely going through some downs, despite the fact that she finished 2021 with the title in The WTA Finals.
The time in which Muguruza showed all her power on the world’s main courts to the point of becoming number one in the world seems very far away. However, at 28, she could still return to her top level and will have an excellent opportunity to do so on the grass of the British Open.
Martina Trevisan Was the Big Surprise in Paris
The 28-year-old Italian built on the momentum of her Moroccan Open title to deliver a more than admirable performance at the Grand Slam on clay.
While it is true that she only defeated one seed (Leylah Fernández) on her way to the semi-finals, Trevisan’s display of fine tennis put her country back on the world stage of major tennis events. Congratulazioni, ragazza!
Paula Badosa’s Injury
The current queen of Spanish tennis had to withdraw from her third round match due to a knee problem that will keep her away from competing for around 5 weeks.
An unwelcome coincidence is that precisely the two athletes who are ranked #3 in their respective associations, Badosa on the WTA and Zverev on the ATP, left Roland Garros with serious injuries.
