Swiatek vs. Gauff preview
Mair knows just how dominant Swiatek has been in Paris and well before she arrived at Roland Garros. The top-seeded Swiatek has won 34 consecutive singles matches, a winning streak only matched or exceeded by Serena Williams over the past two decades. She has tournament wins at Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome this season, and she could become the fourth woman since 1968 to win multiple French Open titles before turning 22 years old. She is 2-0 lifetime against Gauff, winning all four sets, and Swiatek lost only four total games to Gauff in a matchup in Miami earlier this year. Swiatek is amazingly consistent, using her powerful and impressive forehand, and her clay court record is even more dominant than her overall profile at this stage.
Still, Gauff is a threat to win her first grand slam title. The 18-year-old has showcased her upside throughout the tournament, reaching the final without losing a single set. Gauff became the youngest woman to reach a final of a grand slam since Maria Sharapova in 2004, and the American star is just scratching the surface of what she could be on the court. Gauff is highly skilled on clay courts, and her balanced approach and even temperament have come in handy so far in the tournament. She has the upside to compete, even against the No. 1 overall seed in the field.
