Having taken on the mantle of World No, 1 impressively after Ashleigh Barty went out on a high, winning her home slam, Swiatek has backed that up solidly with two Slams in the same year. Can she make it back-to-back Slams?
On paper her draw is favourable, but her emotions can still get the better of her, as we saw in the United Cup as she struggled to hold back tears after being beaten comprehensively by her potential semi-final opponent Jessica Pegula.
You have to feel that a maiden slam is not far away for the engaging Tunisian, but she will have to overturn a deficit against Aryna Sabalenka – who also has been one of the most consistent players on the tour in recent years and has reached three semi-finals in two of the four Grand Slams.
Jabeur’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)
R1: Tamara Zidansek | H2H: Tied at 1-1 (incl. ITF)
Another consistent player on the tour, Pegula looks like she could have a bumpy ride, on paper at least, from the end of the first week, as she looks to get past the quarter-final of a Slam for the first time.
Garcia’s resurgence has bought joy to many people, but it was her win at the WTA Finals that has brought her right back into focus for the Slams, but the blue courts of Melbourne have not been a happy hunting ground for her of late. She will be hoping to get past the first round after exiting early last year.
