- Top seed beats Russia’s Kasatkina in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1
- Gauff reaches Saturday’s final after American’s smooth win
In the first few months of 2022, when Iga Swiatek and Daria Kasatkina faced each other three times on three different continents, Kasatkina managed to win only 11 games.
Their rematch with a French Open final on the line underscored the great challenge before Swiatek these days. She is undeniably playing better tennis than any woman in the world and now she must maintain that level even under the type of pressure that would crush most others.
