Video Reviews for Iga Swiatek vs Donna Vekic

World number one Iga Swiatek will meet junior Donna Vekic in her ninth final of the season at the San Diego Open on Sunday.

Iga Swiatek reached her third straight final after winning the US Open and took second place at the Ostrava Open last week.

In her last win over Pegula in the semi-finals in San Diego, she overtook the Polish-American with a three-set win. After a clumsy start that saw him lose the opening set 4-6 despite her earlier lead 4-2, delays due to rain helped Swiatek build herself up in the last two sets to settle the score 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. Swiatek defeated Coco Gauff 6-0, 6-3 in the quarterfinals. Whereas in the Round of 16, Qinwen Zheng bid farewell to the 21-year-old 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.

Meanwhile, world number 77 Donna Vekic had a disappointing season. The Croatian had 23 wins against 18 losses, mainly including various qualifiers as well as challenging tournaments. She also played tournaments on the ITF circuit. The only significant results for the 26-year-old were reaching the quarter-finals of the Birmingham Classic and most recently the Tallinn Open.

But her run in San Diego gave her the best result of 2022. Vekic entered the tournament as a qualifier and upsets Maria Sakkari 7-6 (3), 6-1, Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 6. 2, Arina Sabalenka 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-1 and most recently Danielle Collins 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (2) in the two-day semi-final match, due to rain delays. With this win, the Croatian will return to the top 50 in the world rankings.
