The Pole started in 2022 with back-to-back semi-final defeats at the Adelaide International and Australian Open, losing to Ashleigh Barty and Danielle Collins. After that, she beat Anett Kontaveit in the final to grab the Qatar Open. She won another title by beating Aryna Sabalenka in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix final in Stuttgart. She missed the Madrid Open due to a shoulder injury.

The defending champion Iga Swiatek beat Victoria Azarenka by 6-4 and 6-1 sets in the Round of 16 in the Italian Open this year. She then defeated Bianca Andreescu by 7-6(2) and 6-0 sets in the quarter-finals to qualify for the semis. In the semi-finals, she dominated Sabalenka by 6-1 and 6-2 in straight sets to reach the final. With a stunning run of 27 straight wins, the World no. 1 is the favorite to win the Italian Open 2022 Final.

On the other side of the Clay surface, we have the number nine seed, 29-year-old Tunisian superstar Ons Jabeur. She has won 24 out of 31 matches in 2022.

Jabeur was knocked out from the last 8 in the Qatar Open, losing against Anett Kontaveit. This year, she reached her first final in the Charleston Open but lost it to Belinda Bencic. After that, she was knocked out from the last 8 of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart with a defeat to Paula Badosa.

However, the Tunisian got the most significant success of her entire career this year by winning the Madrid Open. She beat Jessica Pegula in the final to lift the title.

In the Italian Open this year, Jabeur came from behind in a thrilling quarter-final match against the fourth seed Maria Sakkari to win it. She lost the first set by 1-6 and was down by 2-5 in the second set. Then she displayed her dedication and performance to win it by 1-6, 7-5, and 6-0 sets. Again, in the semi-finals, the 29-year-old came back from a match point to defeat Daria Kasatkina by 6-4, 1-6, and 7-5 sets.

Ons Jabeur will give her everything to defeat Swiatek for her second successive WTA 1000 title.
