In the previous rounds of Wimbledon, Grand Slam champion Iga Shwetik sent out Taiwan’s Su Wei Hsieh and Russia’s Vera Zunariwa without losing a set. For the Polish woman, this is the first match she has won at the London event in her professional career. In 2019, she was eliminated from the first round. It happened 12 months after she won the Wimbledon Junior Championships.
Every match gives me more and more self-confidence. “I’m very pleased with this performance,” Świątek said at the press conference after meeting Zwonariowa, a 2010 Wimbledon finalist and former runner-up. It is never easy to play with an experienced tennis player like this. At first I didn’t know what to expect because she had spent so many years playing on grass and I basically had two. From the start, I wanted to be aggressive and play hard. I did it and I am satisfied – quotes from the Polish portal wtatennis.com.
On Friday, Švetica will face Irina-Camelia Bejo, Agnieszka Radwijska’s last challenger. In the 2018 season, the Romanian player of Krakow was eliminated in the second round of the tournament in Seoul. The 2015 WTA Championship winner ended her career on November 14, 2018.
Pego beat American Katie Volentes and Croatian Petra Martic. The Romanian achieved her best result at Wimbledon in 2015. She has a chance to advance to the 1/8 finals of a Grand Slam event for the third time, after the 2015 Australian Open and Roland Garros 2016. It is her 38th appearance in a tournament with this rating.
In doubles, the Romanian player can boast of two Grand Slam semi-finals. She did them in the 2018 Australian Open and Roland Garros 2018. At Wimbledon she scored the quarter-finals in 2018. In doubles, Begu has nine WTA titles to his credit.
In the single, Romonka won championships in Tashkent (2012), Seoul (2015), Florianópolis (2016) and Bucharest (2017). He can brag of six victories over top 10 tennis players. The first Peugeot Tour was won by Carolina Vuniaka (US Open 2012) and the last was won by Latvian Jelena Ostapenko (Madrid 2018).
Swiatek and Begu had never met before. The match will be played at stadium 12 at 12:00 Poland time. It will be broadcast on Polsat Sport. The live text report will be made by the WP SportoweFakty portal. The winner of the fourth round will go to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza or Tunisia’s Anas Jabeur.
