In her career, Swiatek has only competed in Wimbledon twice and has never gotten through to the quarter-final stage.
Right now, Iga Swiatek holds the joint highest winning streak of the 21st century of 35 straight wins with Venus Williams. When the 2022 Wimbledon starts, that record will almost surely be broken. The Pole will face Croatia’s Jana Fett in the first round and should record a comfortable victory. Given the Pole’s form so far this season, she should be recording easy victories against almost every other player in the women’s singles category. The 21-year-old is the strongest favourite to lift the prestigious title on July 7 when all is said and done. On the other hand, Fett will have her work cut out for her. The Croat has not performed particularly well in the last couple of competitions she was a part of. In the Birmingham Classic, Fett lost to Zhang Shuai in the round of 32 and was knocked out in the qualifiers of the Nottingham Open.
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. In 2021, 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.
Swiatek and Fett are scheduled to face each other on Tuesday, June 28 in the first round of the 2022 Championships. The timing of the match has not been decided yet. The Championships is scheduled to begin on June 27 and go on until July 10. There are a number of exciting matches on the second day of the first round as the likes of Swiatek, Badosa, Williams, Gauff, Krejcikova and others will be in action.
