Iga Swiatek is coming off a brilliant 28-match win streak, and she will begin the hunt for a sixth consecutive title at the Stade Roland Garros against Lesia Tsurenko. She is also the number 1 seed for a grand slam for the first time in her career. Swiatek’s forehand is currently the most potent weapon in women’s tennis. She hits the ball with a lot of spin and speed as well. The combined effect is not easy to handle. She is an aggressive returner, so the opponents have to be extra on their service games and be under pressure of being blown away by Swiatek’s serve and volley. Iga doesn’t seem to have any weakness in her armor, and it would be a tough task to just stand and fight her, let alone defeat a player like that.

Lesia Tsurenko, the former world number 23, is almost a decade older than Swiatek, and she would have faced many world numbers 1’s in her career. This will be quite an uphill battle for the qualifier against the world number 1 in the best form of her life. Tsurenko qualified for her second Grand Slam main draw debut for the season after her first being the Australian Open 2022, where she lost 6-0, 6-1 to the then number 1 Ashleigh Barty.

There is no doubt that Iga Swiatek will overcome the first hurdle to the trophy at Roland-Garros. The only question remains whether the scoreline will be another bagel and breadstick or will Tsurenko be able to dig deep and put up a better resistance against the world number 1.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in two sets.
