Iga Swiatek vs Wang Xinyu match preview
Iga Swiatek vs Wang Xinyu: World number one Iga Swiatek will face China’s Wang Xinyu in the third round of the ongoing French Open on Saturday (June 3) on Court Phillippse-Chatrier in the ongoing 2023 French Open.
Though the Pole looked quite formidable in the previous tournaments, in Paris, it wasn’t that easier for her. However, all her wins in the previous rounds came in straight sets.
In 2023, the 22-year-old has lifted titles in Qatar and Stuttgart, including two more final appearances, in Dubai and Madrid. And though clay is her strong suit, she did struggle with it. In Madrid and Rome, she lost to Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina respectively. Swiatek is now 23-2 at Roland Garros, which is also the best Open Era record at the tournament.
Meanwhile, Wang Xinyu, who also has a doubles match in the second round tomorrow has knocked out the likes of Rebecca Peterson and Marie Bouzkova in the previous rounds. Before the clay-court Grand Slam, the 80th ranked played in Strasbourg where she faced defeat in the Round of 32. She is 2-1 at the tournament.

Iga Swiatek vs Wang Xinyu prediction
Iga Swiatek without a doubt will enter the match as a favourite to win based on her red-hot form this year. She is quite calm on the court but that doesn’t stop her from being an aggressor. At the same time, the three-time Grand Slam winner is far more accomplished than Wang Xinyu.
