Iga Swiatek vs Jana Fett: Preview
Iga Swiatek has been miles ahead of every other player on the WTA tour this season. She has shown the consistency that wasn’t been seen in a long time in women’s tennis. She started the year with a semifinal outing at the Australian Open where she lost to Danielle Collins. Ever since then, Swiatek hasn’t looked back. She won her first WTA 1000 tournament on hard courts at Doha and then backed it up by completing the Sunshine Double- Indian Wells and Miami. She then won the Stuttgart Open and the Italian Open before eventually winning the French Open- her second grand slam title.
Jana Fett is an active Croatian player on the ITF circuit. This will be only her third grand slam main draw appearance and her first in almost 4 years. She has won only one grand slam match back in Melbourne in 2018. This season, she didn’t manage to qualify for the main draw at either Melbourne or Paris but played a lot of ITF tournaments. This grass court season, she qualified for the main draw at Birmingham Classic.
