Swiatek is the No. 1 woman in the world and is gunning for her second Grand Slam of the year and third of her career. She won the French Open earlier this year and previously won at Roland Garros in 2020. Her previous best US Open finish was a fourth round appearance last year. She missed ranked players through the first four rounds, but then beat No. 8 Jessica Pegula in two sets in the quarterfinals and No. 6 Aryna Sabalenka in three sets in the semifinals.
The 2022 US Open has reached its final weekend. The women’s singles tournament wraps up on Saturday with the Final. After two weeks filled with upsets, we end up with two pre-tournament favorites squaring off for the title. No. 1 seed Iga Swiatek will face off against No. 5 seed Ons Jabeur in Arthur Ashe Stadium. The match is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. ET and will air on ESPN.
The Polish star will also become the first woman in six years to win two different Grand Slams in the same season if she adds the US Open crown to the French Open title that she won in June. Swiatek showcased her amazing mental fortitude in the semifinal when she recovered from 4-2 down in the final set to defeat big-hitting Aryna Sabalenka 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.
Swiatek entered the tournament as the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook with +400 odds. Jabeur had longer odds but was still among the top ten in pre-tournament odds at +2400. For this championship match, Swiatek is -180 to win while Jabeur is a +150 underdog.
Iga Swiatek and Ons Jabeur will clash in the Women’s Singles Final at the US Open on September 10. Both Swiatek and Jabeur are the only women to make it to two major finals this season. Ahead of the summit clash, the stakes are high for both players. Swiatek can cement her position at the top of the rankings if she wins her maiden US Open.
On the other hand, this has been a breakout year for Ons Jabeur. In July, she became the first African woman to reach a Grand Slam singles final. But now she would want to go a step further and bask in Grand Slam glory. With history on the line, the Women’s Singles Final promises to be a riveting contest.
Swiatek began the season in stupendous fashion, claiming six titles in a row, the biggest of which was her second Grand Slam crown at Roland Garros. Although her 37-match winning streak was snapped by Alize Cornet in the third round of Wimbledon, the 21-year-old seems to have got back into the groove at the US Open.
Not all of her matches in New York have been smooth sailing, but she has managed to find the extra gear whenever needed. It was evident against sixth seed Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinals, where the top seed bounced back from a break down twice in the decider to record a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 comeback victory.
Jabeur is playing in her second straight Grand Slam final after reaching the finals at Wimbledon in July. That is her best performance to date, following quarterfinals appearances at Wimbledon last year and the Australian Open the year prior. Jabeur beat No. 31 Shelby Rogers in the third round and No. 18 Veronika Kudermetova in the fourth round. She topped unseeded Ajla Tomljanovic in the quarterfinals and then beat No. 17 seed Caroline Garcia in the semifinals.
Ranked world no.1, Swiatek has achieved an overall 56-7 win-loss record in 2022. Swiatek is playing at the U.S. Open where she beat Jasmine Paolini 6-3 6-0, Sloane Stephens 6-3 6-2, Lauren Davis 6-3 6-4, Jule Niemeier 2-6 6-4 6-0, Jessica Pegula 6-3 7-64 and Aryna Sabalenka 3-6 6-1 6-4.
Iga Swiatek will square off with the world no.5 Ons Jabeur in the final on Saturday at 4:00 pm on Arthur Ashe Stadium. Their current head to head is 2-2.
Djokovic, who is chasing a historic Calendar Slam, has been given quite a tricky draw. The World No. 1 will open his campaign against a qualifier, but will likely face big-hitting German Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round.
World number one Novak Djokovic continues his quest for two unique records, i.e to be complete the calendar slam and break the three-way tie he is in right now for 20 titles with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
It has been a phenomenal year for the Serb, who won the Aussie Open (defeating Medvedev), French Open (defeating Tsitsipas) and Wimbledon (defeating Berrettini) and in turn set himself up for a shot at the Golden Grand Slam in an Olympic year.
While he lost to eventual gold medalist Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics , he has talked about being even more motivated this fortnight to scalp the calendar slam.
The Serb started his campaign against Grand Slam debutante and 18-year-old Holger Rune from Denmark and it looked like a clinical Djokovic match as he clinched the opener 6-1.
The teenager broke early in the second and although the world number one broke back immediately, the set headed for a tiebreak which was won 7-5 by Rune.
There was no looking back for Djokovic after that as he came out all guns blazing in the third, and aided by a Rune leg injury, closed the next two matches dropping only three games and booking a spot in the second round, continuing his quest for more greatness.
While Struff can be dangerous on his day, Djokovic has the game to handle the German and should not have much trouble advancing to the third round.
The three-time US Open champion is then slated to face either Kei Nishikori or David Goffin. While Nishikori beat Djokovic at this tournament in epic fashion in 2014, he has been a non-factor against the Serb since then.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will continue his quest for the Calendar Slam when he takes on Tallon Griekspoor in the second round of the 2021 US Open on Thursday.
Djokovic beat Danish teenager Holger Rune 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-1 in the first round on Tuesday. The top seed was in complete control in the first set but Rune raised his level in the second to race to a 3-0 lead. Djokovic fought back to draw level but lost the set in a tiebreak.
Goffin, meanwhile, is on a five-match losing streak and might have a tough task getting past Citi Open finalist Mackenzie McDonald in the first round.
To reach the last eight, Djokovic will likely have to beat his Belgrade conqueror Aslan Karatsev. Karatsev has been on a tear this year, rising from the Challenger circuit to the Top 25 of the ATP rankings. But he has lost his last three matches.
Overall, the Serb struck 55 winners, but the seven double faults he coughed up will undoubtedly be a cause for concern.
Tallon Griekspoor, meanwhile, came from two sets to one down to oust Jan-Lennard Struff in the first round. Griekspoor won 2-6, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 to register his first-ever main-draw victory at a Major.
Griekspoor, ranked 125 in the world, went toe-to-toe with the big-hitting Struff throughout the encounter and hammered 58 winners past the German, 30 of which were aces. He was also aided by the fact that the German squandered 15 break point opportunities.
Rising American Jenson Brooksby is also expected to cause some fireworks. He may even reach the second week considering Karatsev and Alex De Minaur's recent form.
On the other side of this quarter, Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini, bidding to reach a third consecutive Major quarter-final, will take on veteran Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the opening round.
Tsitsipas' fortunes often depend on his return of serve, which has been known to be fragile in crucial moments of a match. But the 23-year-old returned with immense resolve against Murray, winning 30% of his first return points.
If Tsitsipas maintains the same winning rate on his return against Mannarino, he's most likely to get through without much trouble.
Should the seeds hold up, Zverev and Jannik Sinner, the two torchbearers of ATP's NextGen, could lock horns in a blockbuster fourth-round clash.
The other section in this quarter is a free-for-all. Denis Shapovalov has lost his last four matches and comes into the US Open in dismal form. But the Wimbledon semifinalist has made a habit of failing at smaller tournaments, but raising his level in the Slams.
Dutch Tallon Griekspoor has been on the tour since 2017, and held a 5-12 record on the ATP tour coming into the US Open. Two of these wins have come against Stan Wawrinka and Karen Khachanov, at his home tourney, i.e the ATP 500 at Rotterdam.
His only major appearances thus far have been the 2020 Australian Open and Wimbledon earlier this year failing to get past the opener in either.
Griekspoor has not met with much success this year except a few opening round wins at Montpellier, Acapulco and Barcelona and hopes the remainder of the season brings better results for him.
Facing Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany in the opener here, one did not give the Dutchman much of a chance, but Griekspoor came back from being down two sets to one to close the match in a five-set battle, in turn winning his first ever match at a major.
The Canadian could face Olympic silver medalist Karen Khachanov in the third round if the Russian can come through his first two encounters, which includes a clash with the in-form Lloyd Harris.
Elsewhere, Pablo Carreno Busta, who has been riding a wave of confidence since the Olympics, is expected to cause all sorts of problems. The Spaniard will likely have to find a way past home favorites Sebastian Korda and Reilly Opelka if he is to set up a clash with either Shapovalov or Khachanov.
Fifth seed Andrey Rublev produced a solid display against Ivo Karlovic in his opening match at the 2021 US Open, winning 6-3, 7-6(3), 6-3. Rublev didn't lose his serve even once during the encounter, saving all four break points he faced.
I was the only one at the Olympics roundtable not to predict Novak Djokovic to win Gold in Tokyo mainly because of the pressure from what he was trying to achieve and for the same reason I don’t expect him to be victorious in New York either. If this was an ordinary US Open for him, I think Djokovic could win this event with his C-game, like he famously did in the long but low-quality 2019 Wimbledon final against rival Roger Federer.
