Sofia Kenin and Iga Swiatek have had very different yet equally remarkable runs to their first Roland Garros final. The Pole has almost taunted her way to the championship, destroying opponents with a swagger and flare composed of equal parts precision and power.
Sofia Kenin and Iga Swiatek Head-to-head:
The 21-year-old Kenin is a relative veteran of final compared to the Pole, two years her junior. The Moscow-born American is 5-1 in title matches, including that win over Garbine Muguruza in this year’s Australian Open final, while Swiatek is 0-1 from her lone prior final.
Sofia Kenin vs Iga Swiatek Predictions:
Based on how well they have played so far at the Roland Garros, the obvious pick here has to be Swiatek. After all, she has hardly dropped games, let alone sets. Even up against pre-tournament favorite Simona Halep.
Kenin, meanwhile, has progressed more by force of will than by the quality of her tennis. But it is Kenin’s great strength that she seems able, almost always anyway, to drag her opponents into a battle and then to win that battle. She may just be able to do so again here. Prediction: Kenin in 3
Sofia Kenin vs Iga Swiatek Preview:
The Polish youngster is undoubtedly the unearthed treasure of this session. Displaying a stellar overall performance, Iga not only edged into the final but also gained herself some admiration from the greats of the game.
Very few players have the ability to put up an evenly distributed all-round performance; however, Iga is one of them. Her defensive ability restricts the opponent’s aggression while her offensive attributes force them to struggle.
Considering the form of the players, Iga Swiatek will be the favorite to win the tie. However, experienced Kenin won’t sit behind and will try to force her way in and take the match.
She has yet to drop more than five games in a match, and has won 60 percent of all her points in Paris. If she defeats Kenin in similar fashion, it will go down as one of the most dominant Grand Slam performances of all time.
It is down to two as Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin squares off against Iga Swiatek, the teenager from Poland, appearing in her maiden Grand Slam final.
Kenin, the No.4 seed, looks to add a second major trophy in 2020 following her breakthrough triumph at Melbourne Park, while Swiatek bids to cap a barnstorming run, having passed the fourth round at a major for the first time.
