The semi-finals of the French Open get underway on Thursday, with the spots in the women’s final on the line. Iga Swiatek has looked dominant throughout her run to this stage of the competition, and she could be two victories away from securing a third French Open title. But, Beatriz Haddad Maia will be looking to end those dreams.

Before Betting On Iga Swiatek vs Beatriz Haddad Maia

There have been few brighter stars at Roland Garros this year across both men’s and women’s competitions than Iga Swiatek. The Polish superstar is chasing a third French Open title in Paris this year, and a fourth overall Grand Slam title. She has been professional throughout her matches to this point, and no star left remaining in the women’s draw has spent less time on the court than the world number one.

Swiatek continued to showcase her dominance on the clay court on Wednesday, as she easily made it through against sixth seed Coco Gauff. Many expected this to be her first big test at the Slam, but despite an early scare, she cruised through with few issues in an hour and a half. The Pole scored just one ace, but won a staggering 75% of the points on her second serve.

Beatriz Haddad Maia will be competing in a Grand Slam semi-final for just the first time in her career on Thursday, but there have always been signs that the Brazilian is capable at the very top level of the sport. She has shown every ounce of character throughout her run to this stage, coming through marathon matches in each of the four rounds.

She faced her biggest test to date in the quarterfinals, as she came up against Ons Jabeur. But, despite losing the first set, she didn’t panic, and went on to win the second set tie break, before claiming success in the third. Maia will be looking to create more history on Thursday, as she could become the first Brazilian player in the Open Era to reach the French Open final.
