Iga Swiatek vs. Cori Gauff Pick – WTA French Open Final June 4, 2022

The WTA French Open Final is scheduled to be completed on Saturday afternoon at Roland Garros. The final match is expected to begin at 9:00 a.m. EST. This final match comes with surprises and not a surprise at all.

The best woman on the WTA Tour, Iga Swiatek, handled her business through the first five matches in Paris. Her only brief scare was losing the first set against Qinwen Zheng in the fourth round.

What a treat it would be if Ash Barty did not retire from tennis. We’d have a Barty and Swiatek rivalry for the next five years or more.

There are some players who you know aren’t going to be able to sustain their success for more than a year or two. Swiatek is not Bianca Andreescu. She is going to be around for a long time.

Swiatek doesn’t much competition at the moment, but is Coco Gauff breaking out before our eyes at Roland Garros?

The 18-year-old American has had a lot of expectations coming up throughout her career as a youth. She hasn’t beaten the top players on the WTA Tour in major tournaments, but could this be her arrival?

Gauff was an afterthought in the WTA French Open betting markets. She was a +4000 to win the French Open, so there was not much support for Gauff.

Going into the last round of the French Open, Gauff is playing with house money at Roland Garros. She can play loose and look for an upset against Swiatek, who has all of the pressure and expectations of another French Open title.

This would be Swiatek’s second French Open title after just turning 21 on Thursday. There will be many more Grand Slam titles in her future, even if she slips up against Gauff.

Iga Swiatek vs. Cori Gauff Prediction:

Swiatek can tie Venus Williams’ 35 straight wins with a win in the final round on Saturday. She is on an incredible tear, where losing a set has been a rarity.

It was a shocker that Zheng beat Swiatek in the opening set.

Zheng was at her best with a 7-6 win in the first set on Monday. However, then Swiatek turned into the best women’s tennis player in the world and shut the door.

Swiatek has won 6-0, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 since losing the set to Zheng. Winning multiple straight sets is nothing new to the Pole. She usually takes care of her foes in a hurry.

Losing a set is rare for Swiatek. In her last 12 matches, she’s won in straight sets in 11. She has swept in straight sets in 24 of 26 outings, dating back to March.

The vast majority of these matches weren’t close either, with Swiatek not allowing her opponents to force a tiebreaker or get comfortable.

Coco is in the best shape of her career, so could she block Swiatek from tying Venus’ record? It’s possible, but she’ll need a flawless game with Swiatek unable to find her usual form.

Gauff is the No. 23 player on the WTA Tour, but playing like one of the best over the last two weeks. It isn’t Swiatek that has won in straight sets going into the final round. That’s Gauff who has yet to drop a set.

Coco has won 6-1, 7-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 without losing a set going into Saturday. That said, No. 32 Elise Mertens is the only ranked player in the French Open she’s faced.

Her semifinal win was against No. 59 Martina Trevisan, who was 26 spots lower before going on a run to the French Open semis. As nice as this run is for Gauff, Swiatek is a massive step up in class.

In the toughest match of her career, expect Swiatek to force Gauff into mistakes. Once a couple of mistakes occur, the frustration boils over, and Swiatek takes advantage. Swiatek by 6-3, 6-2 is what I’m predicting in the WTA French Open Final.
