Iga Swiatek is a weapon on the clay, but The Wolf is yet to be convinced on the hard courts. 

The seventh-seeded Pole had a limited lead-up to the US Open, losing in the second round in Tokyo followed by a first-round loss at Cincinnati.

Swiatek beat Jamie Loeb 6-3 6-4 in the US Open first round before overcoming Fiona Ferro 3-6 7-6 6-0. Her third-round opponent, Anett Kontaveit, appears to have found some serious form.

The 28th-ranked Estonian enters the US Open after winning in Cleveland the week prior, and although the quality of opposition wasn’t at Swiatek’s level she did defeat Sara Sorribes Tormo in the semi-final.

Kontaveit smashed Jil Teichmann 6-4 6-1 in the second round, with the Swiss entering the US Open in very good touch and her form line translates a lot stronger than that of Swiatek. She earlier cruised past Aussie Samantha Stosur 6-3 6-0 in the US Open first round 

Kontaveit has a 2-1 career record over Swiatek – both wins on the hard courts with the loss at the French Open this year on Swiatek’s preferred surface. 

Verdict

Back on the hard courts on this, I like Kontaveit as the outsider in this.
