Swiatek vs Muchova preview
You'd think that Iga Swiatek, the world No.1 and reigning French Open champion, would be the runaway favourite to lift the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen over a world No.43 and maiden grand slam finalist, but Karolina Muchova isn't here to make up the numbers. Her astonishing 5-0 record against opponents ranked in the top three shows that she always raises her game against the world's best players. What's more, she also beat Swiatek in their only previous meeting.
The 26-year-old was out of action, out of the top 200 and, seemingly, out of a job just last year, doctors having told her that her playing career was as good as over after a succession of injuries. Has any sportsperson ever defied the medics this emphatically and this quickly?
The Czech's path to the French Open final was as tough as it gets, taking in three seeded players, including the world No.2 and No.8, as well as a former runner-up, but she's defied the odds at every turn, all while playing the fearlessly front-footed brand of tennis that's always been her trademark. Muchova's victory over Aryna Sabalenka on Thursday was one of the standout ties of the tournament, and one that showcased her variety, flair, and never-say-die attitude.
But then there's Swiatek. At the age of 22 she's already the undisputed Queen of Clay. Her winning streak at Roland-Garros now stretches to 13 matches, and in the last nine of those she hasn't dropped a set. For the first time this tournament, however, the Pole about to face an opponent who's not only at the top of her game, but also possesses as many strings to her racket as she does.
Both of these players like to mix it up with a wide variety of shots, from baseline-seeking missiles to dinky dropshots and the good old serve-and-volley. They've each also got pace to burn, and the mental fortitude to turn things around when the going gets tough.
This has the makings of a classic, and here's how to get a Swiatek vs Muchova live stream and watch the French Open women's final from wherever you are.
