Iga Swiatek: Height, Australian Open 2022, Prediction, Salary
The American tennis player is now guaranteed to make her Top 10 debut next week, surpassing her previous career high of No 23, set in Jan 2019. Last March, she underwent surgery to treat endometriosis; since returning, she has compiled a 36-10 record, including her first two WTA titles in Palermo and San Jose.
The 28-year-old Collins’ intent was clear from the very first game, in which she pounded a succession of returns as hard and deep as she could, to overwhelm Swiatek with pure first-strike tennis.
Australian Open 2022:
Seeking to become the first local since Chris O’Neil in 1978 to win the Australian Open, the 25-year-old was dominant once again as she thrashed American Keys.
“To be in the final weekend of your home grand slam is what a lot of Aussie players dream of,” she told reporters. “It’s going to be an incredible experience come Saturday. I can’t wait to go out there and enjoy it.”
Keys started the semi-final with a stinging forehand winner, but Barty was able to break her serve in a tight opening game and was largely in control from there on.
After a thrilling tournament so far, we are fast approaching the conclusion of the first Major of the year. Both Iga Swiatek and Danielle Collins will have high hopes of booking their place in the final. But will it be a second Major final for 2020 French Open champion Swiatek.
It rather feels that if she makes a similarly slow start, Collins will punish her. Of course, this is rarefied air and Collins relative lack of experience has to be taken into account.
But she has been in an Australian Open semifinal before and I like her chances of going at least one better than she did in 2019.
Swiatek has a career prize money of US$2,936,402.
