Two-time Grand Slam champion Iga Swiatek will face off Ons Jabeur for the final clash in the 2022 US Open on Saturday. This is the first U.S. Open final for both players. Here, you will know about WTA US Open Final 2022.
Jabeur comes off dominating Garcia by a 6-1, 6-3 margin in the semifinal. She broke the French’s 13-match winning streak in that match. The Tunisian is currently ranked World No. 5 and this is her second consecutive grand slam final. Ons Jabeur achieved her career milestone by reaching the Wimbledon final. Unfortunately, she missed the title. But it boosted her confidence and improved her performance at the US Open. She defeated Elizabeth Mandlik, Madison Brengle, Veronika Kudermetova, Shelby Rogers, Ajla Tomljanovic, and finally the in-form Caroline Garcia in the latest semifinal.
Meanwhile, Swiatek is the World No. 1 and also the first seed in this year’s US Open edition. The 21-year-old Polish has already claimed two grand slam titles. She won the 2022 French Open. She will appear on the court aiming to bag her second Grand Slam title this year and the third major of her career.

WTA US Open Final 2022 Pick: Iga Swiatek to win in straight sets
The first and foremost prediction would be that the tennis world will enjoy a perfect hard fight on Saturday. Both Swiatek and Jabeur have already proved their worth throughout the WTA tour this year. Both equally deserve to claim the US Open title.
Jabeur’s current form is amazing. She has made herself a tough opponent for any player with her various styles of play. The Tunisian did not face a single break point against Caroline Garcia in the semifinal that made her way to the final. Her serve played a crucial role in her victory.
Serve— that’s exactly what Swiatek has recently been struggling with. The World No. 1 has lost serve a total of 11 times in her last two matches alone. Still, her form in the championship rounds is on a different level altogether. She has a stunning record in major finals. She has secured nine wins in ten finals she appeared in so far, all without dropping a set. She rode on an amazing 37-match winning streak earlier this season.
Though Jabeur will make it tough for her, the World No. 1 is expected to lift the trophy on Saturday.
