Iga Swiatek vs Jessica Pegula Start Time and Venue:
The US Open Tennis quarter-final match between Swiatek and Pegula will go underway on Wednesday, 7 Sept. at 7:00 pm ET. Jessica Pegula will get the home support of the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows.
World No. 1 Iga Swiatek will take on the top-ranked American Jessica Pegula in an exciting quarter-final match on Wednesday. It will be the first quarter-final appearance for the Pole in the US Open Grand Slam.
Iga Swiatek improved the season’s win-loss record to an insane 54-7 with her comeback win over Jule Niemeier in the Fourth Round. After losing her first tournament set, she bounced back to secure the match by 2-6, 6-4, and 6-0 sets.
Now, the Pole will look for her third Grand Slam title – after winning the 2020 and 2022 Roland-Garros. She beat Jessica Pegula in the quarter-finals of the Roland-Garros and will look to replicate that feat.
On the other hand, 8th seed Jessica Pegula has been quite impressive in the tournament. She cruised past the big-hitting Petra Kvitova, August’s Cincinnati Masters runner-up and two-time Wimbledon winner, by straight sets in Round 4.
Now, the American will take on world no. 1 in her first ever US Open Grand Slam quarter-final. A win will send her to the first-ever Grand Slam semi-final in her career.
Jessica Pegula’s 35 match wins against 16 losses, although not in the same league as Swaitek’s record for 2022, is amongst the best for the season.
Iga Swiatek has a slight edge of 2-1 wins against Jessica Pegula in their three head-to-head meetings. In the most recent one, Swiatek beat the American in straight sets in the Roland-Garros quarter-final.
Swiatek vs Pegula Prediction
Iga Swiatek hasn’t been at her very best for the last couple of months. She was knocked out twice from the Round-of-16 in the Cincinnati Open and Canadian Open Masters.
Moreover, the Pole hasn’t looked the most convincing in her wins in the tournament. She dropped her serves nine times in four matches. However, she came back to win all sets except one.
On the other hand, Jessica Pegula is looking solid so far. She has been the most confident behind her serves in the tournament.
It would be very difficult to keep up the good work against world no. 1. Nonetheless, Jessica Pegula will get the home support at the Flushing Meadows.
We are slightly leaning towards the American to win in three sets.
