Barbora Krejcikova is the defending champion here in Roland Garros in Women’s Singles and doubles, it’s again her along with Katerina Siniakova. The irony is she can’t defend her title this time as she suffers an elbow injury since February. Who’ll be the new champion? We don’t know yet. Let’s talk about it.
The 20-year-old Iga Swiatek is the only player from her country to win the WTA Roland Garros 2022 which is her merely Grand Slam title. Soon to be 21, Iga won the title here when she ranked 54 and no one wins a Grand Slam while having a ranking that far. She is devastating in 2022, won 5 titles already this season while her overall title number is 8. She came to Paris with a 28 match winning streak and the season’s record is 37-3. Who knows, maybe this time she will double her Grand Slam number
3rd ranked player Paula Badosawins 1 title so far this year while her career title counts as 3. However, her best performance in any Grand Slam was reaching the quarterfinals last year. She could face some big names if she intends to go further.
Ons Jabeur is the 1st Arab woman to reach any Grand Slam quarterfinals and won any WTA singles title. She failed to take part in Australia Open due to an injury nevertheless, winning the Masters title in the Clay Court in Madrid proves her strength on this surface. She surely feels the extra motivation to win a Grand Slam title as the first Arab woman.
Ex WTA No. 1, Simona Halep now ranks 19 but she is a champion and in this kind of competition, experience helps a lot which she has abundantly. She won here in 2018 and won another Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2019. She won a title this season already and had a mixed kind of year so far. She’ll try to come back to the top strongly and nothing could be more appropriate than doing it in Roland Garros.
Four-time Grand Slam Champion, Ex No. 1 in the world Naomi is having a rough time. Couldn’t play on the clay court of Madrid due to an injury. She hadn’t a great record here either. Yet, she’ll try to do something good this time.
