This is a surprise semi-final contest at the French Open 2020, to say the least.

19-year-old Iga Swiatek takes on Nadia Podoroska who has had an astonishing run.

Podoroska is the first qualifier ever to reach the semi final of the French Open.

In a tournament of upsets, her win over Elina Svitolina in the last round was the biggest of the lot.

Who now makes the most of this opportunity to reach a Slam semi final?

Iga Swiatek Preview – Swiatek impresses again at Roland Garros

Iga Swiatek made quite a big splash in her debut French Open campaign last season, reaching the fourth round.

But she has gone even better now having booked a place in the semi final, the first place in the final four of her Grand Slam career.

It has been an excellent 2020 from her. She reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and then made it to the third round at the recent US Open.

Even more impressively is the way that she has simply powered her way through the tournament.

She has been crushing opponents, the biggest of which was number one seed Simona Halep in the fourth round.

It was an astonishing 6-1 6-2 win that Poland’s Swiatek took over Halep in that contest and there was just little sign of this run coming.

But she goes as the big odds-on favourite for this semi-final contest at 1/4 odds* (odds taken 18:29 GMT on Wednesday 7th October).

Will she take her chance in this one?

Our betting prediction:
Swiatek -5.5 handicap

Bet at Ladbrokes

(odds taken 18:29 GMT on Wednesday 7th October)


Since the return of tennis action this year, Swiatek fell in the first round of the Western & Southern Open, before that third-round run at the US Open.

In her first foray onto clay this season, she fell in the first round of the Italian Open.

During this French Open semi-final run, Swiatek has not dropped more than five games in a match.

In the quarter-finals she took a 6-3 6-1 win over Martina Trevisan.

A Swiatek -5.5 handicap is at 11/10* (odds taken 18:29 GMT on Wednesday 7th October).


Nadia Podoroska Preview – Can qualifier Podoroska make further history?

Who saw this run to the semi-final of the French Open coming from Nadia Podoroska?

She created history in becoming the first-ever qualifier to reach the final four at the French Open Grand Slam.

She is only the third qualifier (in the women’s game) to get to the semi finals of a major tournament since the start of the Open era.

So she has been living in dreamland at the moment and she came through a big trial in her quarter final match.

She was up against third seed Elina Svitolina and she was a heavy underdog in that one.

But it was a stunning 6-2 6-4 upset that Podoroska pulled off in that one and she will again have to defy underdog status.

Podoroska is the 3/1 underdog in the match outright for French Open tennis betting* (odds taken 18:29 GMT on Wednesday 7th October).

Argentine Nadia Podoroska has produced the very best run of her career at this level.

This is actually just the second-ever appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam.

The previous appearance for the 23 year in a Slam ended in a first round exit at the 2016 US Open.

Who would put anything past her at the moment for this contest?

But the question is whether or not she will be able to stay on such a high?

Podorosk has dropped two sets in the French Open this year, in her 2nd and 4th round matches.

The top option in the set betting market is Iga Swiatek 2-0 at 8/11* (odds taken 18:29 GMT on Wednesday 7th October).
