Her 31st win in a row opened Roland-Garros' round of 16. World No.1 Iga Swaitek continued her crazy series against Montenegrin Danka Kvinic (95th), which ended 6-3, 7-5 Saturday in round 3. The Pole won the round of 16 with a set still intact, but less easily than the previous two rounds. The Pole has been playing in 2019 since its debut participation.
The 2020 edition winner was less precise than usual, committing 23 unforced errors and only 13 winning strokes. However, he experienced an air hole in set two with two lost service games.
Iga Swiatek had never left so many matches (8) in one match for more than a month. Her semi-final in Stuttgart against Russian Liudmila Samanthasonova was won in three sets 6-7 (4/7)), 6-4, 7-5 in less than three hours. Swiatek was challenged by Kovinic's precise and heavy service. She was present for the third round at the Parisian Grand Slam.
