Iga Swiatek vs Mona Barthel LIVE stream and Broadcasters details
Swiatek will come into the Tokyo Olympics after a forgettable outing at Wimbledon. She made her way into the fourth round at the grass-court Grand Slam where her journey was halted by Ons Jabeur. However, she did win the Italian Open this season which gave her immense confidence but post that, she hasn’t had a great time on the court.
On the other hand, Mona Barthel hasn’t done that well this season either. She was knocked out in the very first rounds at Wimbledon, German Open, as well as in the Prague Open 2021. She would be itching to do well at the highest level, however, she has a monumental challenge ahead of her in the very first round.
