Coco Gauff To Meet Defending Champion Iga Swiatek In The French Open Semifinals

Coco Gauff To Meet Defending Champion Iga Swiatek In The French Open Semifinals

Coco Gauff’s successful French Open campaign would have to withstand a great hill as she faces current French Open champion Iga Swiatek in the semifinals.

“It goes by really fast, I will say,” the 20-year-old American said. “When you’re playing the match, it just goes by really fast.”

Gauff would meet defending champion and No. 1-ranked Iga Swiatek in singles on Thursday for a chance to progress to the French Open final.

“It’s good to just keep going and not think about this match as something huge — just another match — to not put too much baggage on your shoulders,” Swiatek said. 

“But I guess Coco is not easy. She really likes playing on clay, especially here. I’ll just focus on myself and I’ll prepare tactically and we’ll see.”

Swiatek picked up yet another victory, beating Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova 6-0, 6-2 and stretching her French Open winning streak to 19 matches as she seeks a third trophy in a row in Paris and her fourth in five years.

“She’s, I feel like, way better than anyone else on clay, and especially here. It’s very tough,” Vondrousova said. “I feel like on the court, you have nothing to maybe offer. She’s just too strong here.”

No. 3 Gauff came back to defeat three-time major finalist Ons Jabeur 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 to reach the semifinals at a third consecutive Grand Slam tournament.

“I’ve been trying to do better at being consistent in the big tournaments,” Gauff said, “and I’m reaching that level of consistency.”

Overall, Swiatek has won 10 of 11 meetings against Gauff, including a 6-4, 6-3 semifinal win on clay last month en route to the Italian Open title.

“I definitely think I have to find a better way to play her than the last times I played on clay, because I’ve obviously been unsuccessful the last couple of times we’ve played — regardless of the surface and anything,” Gauff said. 

“She’s definitely a tough opponent for me. and for anybody.”
