Ever since the 2022 season began, Iga Swiatek has been on an absolute tear. Ever since Ashleigh Barty’s retirement from the sport, Swiatek has been the undisputed no. 1 in women’s tennis and there is nobody on paper who can perhaps edge out a win against her in The Championships’ field. The 21-year-old is on a dream winning streak at the moment and the way she won the French Open made the Grand Slam look like just another WTA calendar event. Although she has never won the grass-court Grand Slam so far in her career, 2022 seems to be the perfect stage and given her form, it would not be unwise to bet against her.

First Wimbledon

In her career, Swiatek has only competed in Wimbledon twice and has never gotten through to the quarter-final stage. Her first taste of the Championships came in 2019 but the experience was short-lived as she lost her opening round match against Viktorija Golubic. It was a straight-sets defeat for the Pole who, at the time, was nowhere near the level she is at the moment. The score at the end of the match was 6-2, 7-6 in Golubic’s favour.

Beaten in the round of 16 in 2021

The Championships were cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The following year, Swiatek was back on grass and this time, she had a much better performance. The Pole advanced to the fourth round of the competition, her best display yet and she beat the likes of Hseih Su-wei, Vera Zvonareva and Irina-Camelia Begu to make it through to the round of 16. However, the Pole came up short against Ons Jabeur as she lost 7-5, 1-6, 1-6 and was knocked out.

Since then, Swiatek has taken her game to the next level and although she will look to win The Championships this season. The 21-year-old already has the French Open in her bag this season and winning perhaps the most prestigious Grand Slam of them all would certainly be a bright feather on her cap.
