Athletistic/Tennis.

WTA. Dubai. 1/8 final. Chventek – Samsonov. Direct

World number one Igi Šwiętek is back in shape and ready to dominate the circuit again. After winning the title again at the Qatar Open on Saturday, the Polish tennis player secured a ruthless 6-1, 6-1 win over Canadian Leyla Fernandez on Tuesday. The 21-year-old started her incredible 37-match winning streak at this stage last season, but today’s opponent Lyudmila Samsonova nearly snapped that streak in a hard-fought three-set semi-final contested at the Stuttgart tournament. It was the first meeting between the two and suggests we could have a real thriller on Wednesday and it will be interesting to see how Šwiętek react if they drop a set in their current form. World number 13 Samsonova returned to action after dropping a set, then beat Paulo Badosa in the 1/16 final. Šwiętek is the match favorite and could even win in the 2nd set, but Samsonova has fangs on the court that suggest she can take the hit and at least hit the set, and maybe even make a splash.
