Iga Swiatek is sweeping all of her opponents at this year’s Wimbledon. Belinda Bencic has never defeated the Pole, but she will have a better chance because Iga has less experience on grass courts.
Wimbledon is one of the titles Iga has yet to win. If she wins, she will vault back to the top of the rankings. Aryna Sabalenka has recently been pursuing Swiatek’s lead. To prevent the Belarussian tennis player from stealing the throne, the Polish player must at least reach the semifinals.
Belinda Bencic’s season has been hampered by bad results in big tournaments. A trophy in Adelaide and another in Abu Dhabi make up for a disappointing season. The Swiss tennis player has already surpassed her previous performance at Wimbledon, so regardless of the outcome, she will most likely move up in the WTA rankings.
