Iga Swiatek vs Marketa Vondrousova: 2024 Roland Garros - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Iga Swiatek served a double bagel to Anastasia Potapova at the 2024 Roland Garros, and Marketa Vondrousova will want to avoid that fate and possibly do even more.

The world no. 1 has been playing absolutely amazing tennis at the French Open so far. She's hoping to win her fourth French Open this year, and if she keeps playing like she did in the previous round, she will likely do it.

Her tennis is absolutely crushing opponents right now, and nobody looks particularly close in level. Standing between Swiatek and another trophy are a few players, the first of whom is Vondrousova.

She is a former Roland Garros finalist herself and a fellow major winner, as the Czech player is a wonderful clay player whose very tricky game can cause many problems for many players, including Swiatek.

She'll be able to counter the Polish player occasionally, but she'll need more than that because the Pole has been playing relentless tennis so far.


They've played three times so far, and Swiatek has won all three of those matches. The most recent meeting between them happened last year at the WTA Finals in Mexico, where Swiatek won 7-6(3), 6-0.

They played two times on clay, and both times, the Polish player won fairly easily. Generally, their matches went according to how Swiatek played, meaning that if she played her best, Vondrousova had no chance.

Swiatek is not playing some average tennis right now, so judging by that, this should be a fairly easy win for her. She should win fairly comfortably, but her opponent can also make it a proper challenge. She's likely to need some time before finding a solution, but once she does, it should be pretty straightforward.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in two sets.
