Ahead of the clash, WION sportswriter Digvijay Singh Deo had the opportunity to interact with Indian tennis coach Enrico Piperno who gave his thoughts on the women’s singles final. On the shock against the world no. 1 against no. 23-year-old Piperno said: “Well, Coco came on the scene a few years ago. Back then, she had the tools to become a superstar. Gauff is one of those players who doesn’t get hot on the ground. She’s very, very slippery. To beat her, you really have to beat her. She seems a lot more relaxed. She has the tools to win the Grand Slam.

Swiatken, on the other hand, had a terrific streak. But she will fall one day. Whether it will be tomorrow, we will know… It won’t be easy for Swiatek. Gauff won’t fall very easily. Swiatek will have his hands full,” Piperon said.

In men’s singles, Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev are engaged in a tantalizing semi-final as birthday boy Nadal aims for his 14th Roland Garros title. As the tennis fraternity closely follows the journey of crowd and tournament favorite Nadal, many also have their eyes on the women’s singles final, which is set to take place on the wire.
