Defending champion Iga Swiatek has set up a tantalizing fourth-round showdown against Emma Raducanu at the 2023 BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday.
After a first-round bye, Swiatek kicked off her title defense with a bang. Up against Claire Liu in the second round, she dominated the American from start to finish to win the match 6-0, 6-1.
The World No. 1 faced former Indian Wells champion Bianca Andreescu in the third round. Swiatek was challenged plenty of times by the Canadian, but passed the test with flying colors to secure a 6-3, 7-6 (1) victory.
Raducanu kicked off her campaign here with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Danka Kovinic, avenging her loss to the 28-year old at last year’s Australian Open. She then knocked out 20th seed Magda Linette to reach the third round.
The Brit took on World No. 13 Beatriz Haddad Maia and came out on top in three sets to oust her. This marked just the second time that Raducanu has won three consecutive matches since her title-winning run at the 2021 US Open.
Swiatek has been the tour’s best player for quite some time now. Raducanu is also starting to show glimpses of the form that fetched her a Major title. With two of the sport’s biggest names set to clash, fireworks are bound to happen. Here are all the details regarding their upcoming contest:
