Eighth seed Iga Świątek will take on seventeenth seed Maria Sakkari in the much-anticipated quarter-final on Wednesday. Świątek has played like a true champion thus far and is yet to lose a set in the French Open 2021. The Polish tennis star went past Marta Kostyuk in the fourth-round clash with ease. Kostyuk’s double faults and Iga’s disciplined gameplay never allowed the Ukrainian to gain any kind of momentum.
Świątek also went past Anett Kontaveit, Rebecca Peterson and Kaja Juvan in dominating fashion. The defending champion has even bageled her opponents twice in the tournament. Swiatek will look to carry her scintillating form into the quarter-final clash against Maria Sakkari.
