Swiatek Shows No Mercy To Vondrousova With Another Thrashing At Roland Garros

Swiatek Shows No Mercy To Vondrousova With Another Thrashing At Roland Garros

by Zachary Wimer

Iga Swiatek played another match at the 2024 Roland Garros, and it was once again a crushing victory, as Marketa Vondrousova couldn't find any answers in two sets.

The WTA's world no. 1 has been utterly impressive this clay season, winning back-to-back trophies in Madrid and Rome. Not many expected her to play even better in Paris, not because she couldn't, but because it seemed almost impossible, but she did just that by thrashing opponents in most of her matches.

The only showing in which she had troubles was against Naomi Osaka, but that was more about the Japanese player being brilliant than Swiatek playing badly.

In the quarter-final, she faced reigning Wimbledon champion and former Roland Garros finalist Vondrousova, and the match wasn't even close. Handing a bagel to a fellow major winner, a top-five seed at the event who is also a reigning Grand Slam champion, is pretty crazy, too.

She did it by playing outrageous tennis, just bombarding from the baseline, and Vondrousova could not do anything. The Polish player totaled 15 winners in that opening set and only 3 unforced errors.

That means that for every unforced error, she hit 5 winners. That's a ratio that is basically impossible to counter. The second set offered better play from Vondrousova but not a major change in the scoreline.

The Czech player won a game, but Swiatek turned it up and crushed her. The final score ended up being 6-0, 6-2 for the Pole against the 5th seed.
