2022 French Open women’s singles draw, results

·2 min read

Poland’s Iga Swiatek is the overwhelming favorite in the French Open women’s draw, carrying a 28-match win streak into Roland Garros.

Swiatek, who broke through to win the 2020 French Open at age 19, is the world No. 1 and top seed in Paris. She won 19 of her last 20 matches in straight sets over the last three months.

If she wins all seven matches to claim the title, she will have the longest WTA Tour win streak since Venus Williams in 2000.

Missing from the draw: Australian Ash Barty, the 2019 French Open champ who suddenly retired in March while holding the top ranking.

And Serena Williams, a three-time French Open winner who last played at last June’s Wimbledon. She will miss Roland Garros for the first time since 2017. It’s unknown if or when the 40-year-old will play again.

Instead, the other top contenders include 2018 Roland Garros winner Simona Halep of Romania (potential Swiatek fourth-round foe) and world No. 3 Paula Badosa of Spain (potential Swiatek semifinal foe).

Czech Barbora Krejcikova, who won in Paris last year while unseeded, hasn’t played in more than two months due to an elbow injury but is in the draw as the No. 2 seed.

Tunisian Ons Jabeur (opposite half from Swiatek), the runner-up to Swiatek in the last significant clay-court lead-up event in Rome, was upset in the first round.

Naomi Osaka, unseeded after taking time off last year, opens against American Amanda Anisimova, who knocked Osaka out of the Australian Open.
