Iga Swiatek vs Liudmila Samsonova: Preview

Iga Swiatek

Iga Swiatek continues to stamp her authority as the top-ranked player as the 20-year old shot down US Open champ Emma Raducanu in the quarter-finals with a regulation 6-4, 6-4 win. Having earlier defeated Eva Lys in straight-sets, Iga is into the semi-finals in her tournament debut. This will be Iga’s 5th semi-final of the season in 7 tournament appearances of which she has won 3 titles.

Liudmila Samsonova makes it to her first semi-final of the season as she defeats Laura Siegemund 7-5, 6-3 to make it three consecutive straight-set wins this week. Having earlier lost in the 1st qualifying round of the event in 2019, Liudmila is making her main-draw debut and has fared quite well to reach the last-4. After dropping a double bagel over Chloe Paquet in the first round, Samsonova defeated former Stuttgart champion and former World No. 1 Karolina Pliskova as well.

Iga Swiatek

Samsonova will come into the tie with a career claycourt record of 96-56 and is 3-0 on the surface this season while having a season record of 9-7 across all surfaces. Swiatek will take the court with a career claycourt record of 76-13 and is 2-0 on the surface this season while having a 30-3 season record so far.

Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2022 season, Iga seems to be the one heading into the finals for the fantastic run she is currently in. Samsonova has surely surprised the lot with her strong wins but going up against the World No. 1 will always be a challenge and it looks like the challenge she will lose.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in straight-sets
