Coco Gauff She is number two in the WTA ranking although she seemed like any tennis player next to Iga Swiatek this Thursday. In fact, they all seem like one more next to the best tennis player of the moment.

Gauff, who could not stand up in the first set, did so in the second. It reached 3-1 and served. It was of little use to him because it was prolonging a duel that already had an owner, with a score of 6-2 and 6-4. The last five games were for Iga. The face to face between the two is: 11-1.

Swiatek, triple Roland Garros champion, will go this Saturday for title poker in the Parisian land. There is no rival that can stop her in the Philippe Chatrier where she has not lost since she lost in the 2021 quarterfinals against Maria Sakkari. There are now 20 wins without failure.

The Pole has a string of 18 victories on the clay tour, which has allowed her to win the Mutua Madrid Open and Rome against Aryna Sabalenka. Today there was a Coco in front who has replaced the Belarusian in second place on the podium.

The American did not take any donuts, unlike Anastasia Potapova (6-0 and 6-0) and Marketa Vondrousova (6-0 and 6-2). But she never gave the impression of worrying an opponent who has a privileged mind for sports.

Without needing to be excessively tall (1.75 meters), the player from Warsaw sets a cruising pace in matches that is difficult for anyone to match. Her insulting regularity means that she has an advantage over Gauff in the ranking that shoots up to 3,007 points.

Serena’s points record

One of the brands that Swiatek can beat this summer ands the most points in the women’s ranking and which was established by Serena Williams with 13,615. If he is crowned this Saturday he will equal his limit of 11.695but on the grass tour he has room to add because he remained in the semifinals of the 500 category tournament in Bad Homburg and in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon.
