Iga Swiatek vs. Jessica Pegula Pick – WTA French Open June 1, 2022

The French Open got wild in Paris on Tuesday night. In a match, Rafael Nadal didn’t want to play under the lights, he looked like vintage Rafa in primetime. His preference was an afternoon match, though Nadal had to roll with the cards given to him.

As Nadal chased the No. 1 seed in the French Open out of Roland Garros, he made the most of it. Nadal had won more than 20 sets in a row before the quarterfinal of the French Open. He lost in the first set and then lost two more times in four sets.

Is the WTA French Open No. 1 next? Djokovic is gone, while Iga Swiatek still stands on the women’s side. While the men’s tournament is much more wide-open, Swiatek can’t get comfortable.

She was too comfortable in the first set of her most recent match in the fourth round. Qinwen Zheng had Swiatek second-guessing herself after a 7-6 first set. Zheng was a set away from a monster upset at the French Open.

However, the 21-year-old we’ve become familiar with showed herself and won the next two frames 6-0, 6-2.

Zheng complained of menstrual cramps following the match, but I think it was just Swiatek getting a wake up call in the first set.

No. 11 Jessica Pegula is Swiatek’s highest-ranked opponent in the French Open. Pegula stands in front of her and the semifinal at Roland Garros.

Pegula is the highest-ranked she’s been in her career. She improved to No. 11 on May 9 and hopes to improve on that position.

A win over Swiatek would send Pegula into the top-10. The daughter of Buffalo Bills’ owner, Terry, is coming off a three-set win over Irina-Camelia Begu in the fourth round.

After a brief scare versus Zheng, is Swiatek in upset territory at Roland Garros? Head below for our free Swiatek vs. Pegula prediction on June 1, 2022.

Iga Swiatek vs. Jessica Pegula Prediction:

Iga Swiatek lost her first set since March 22 against Qinwen Zheng. She had gone 18 straight sets without a loss before Zheng ruined the streak.

Along with 18 straight sets, Swiatek was a winner in 26 straight sets before losing a set on March 22 to Ludmilla Samsonova. Despite losing the first set to Zheng, Swiatek is 48 of her previous 50 sets.

Swiatek is on a 32-match winning streak.

She’s head and shoulders above the rest of the field on the WTA Tour. Ash Barty retiring allows Swiatek to run all over the rest of the women on the court.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the hard court or clay. Swiatek can win at any place and on any surface.

Swiatek is 17-2 in her career on the clay. She doesn’t have the most experience as a 21-year-old on the clay, but that hasn’t mattered. The Pole can play her best regardless of the surface.

Pegula was 11-12 on the clay going into the French Open.

Pegula is coming off a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 win over Irina-Camelia Begu to advance this far. She’s needed three sets in two of her four matches.

Swiatek was on fire, winning 6-2, 6-0, 6-0, 6-2, 6-3, 7-5 in six sets before the loss to Zheng. Just beating Swiatek in one set is an accomplishment.

She can’t have felt great about dropping that set. Swiatek responded to win the next 12 of 14 games. Expect her to be focused and determined to have a clean game this time. A win for Swiatek by 6-3, 6-2 looks accurate.

  1. Swiatek is STILL driven by passion for tennis and pursuit of excellence. A rare commodity at upper echelons of tennis aristocracy. As long as her strive for better things will exist she will be hard to beat in a long run. Only decaying fringes of this magnificent sports movement for girls and women can destroy Iga and her amazing talent.
