Roland Garros 2022 PREVIEW: Iga Swiatek on the throne, again?

Iga Swiatek will undoubtedly be the star of Roland Garros 2022 women's singles. The very young number 1 in the world will just turn 21 next May 31, but the game expressed and the consistency of performance that she is having of her make her look like a true veteran.

With the victory at the Italian Open, without losing a single set, the Polish tennis player has brought to 28 the number of games won consecutively in this 2022 and even more impressive is that of the tournaments won, five out of five played, of which four are WTA 1000.

With such a long streak of success, the thought of a defeat would snake through anyone's mind. At the Roland Garros 2022 she will undoubtedly be the big favorite, difficult to make a different prediction. With the streak of victories and impressive performances of the last three months, there is little room for doubt, and above all little room for her opponents.

Ons Jabeur, Simona Halep, are the tennis players who are following her, trying to try to undermine her.

Some surprises could happen, as often happens in a Grand Slam, with outsiders ready to take their chances.

But this Roland Garros, unlike those of past years, already seems to be addressed. Iga Swiatek, a few days ago said: "I hope the pressure doesn't get the better of the RG. The key will be to do exactly as I have done in the past.

I've been under a lot of pressure in these tournaments before, but I hope the different kind of pressure you have in a Grand Slam doesn't get the better of me. I'm trying to accept that this streak will end someday.

It is physically and mentally difficult to do the same job every week, because after all we are human. I will try to treat Roland Garros like any other tournament, maybe trying to enjoy it a little more, because we have a day off between games."

Only the pressure could stop Iga Swiatek in Paris.
