The women's draw has been completed for 2024 Wimbledon with Iga Swiatek as number one seed and Marketa Vondrousova is defending champion ahead of the grass court major at SW19. But what about projected Quarter-Finals?
If all goes to the script, it will see the top seed face the defending champion in the Quarter-Finals with a potential showdown between Iga Swiatek and Marketa Vondrousova in the offing. The World No.1 decided against a warm-up and didn't play Berlin after winning Roland Garros again. She has never favoured grass despite winning on the surface as a junior.
She will aim to finally crack that hoodoo in the coming weeks and could face the defending champion in doing so. But Vondrousova has had a roller coaster to say the least since becoming champion 12 months ago. In that tournament, she defeated Ons Jabeur in the final who doesn't feature in these projected Quarter-Finals. This is despite her reaching the last two finals.
Vondrousova since then has barely played at times and also recently got an injury in Berlin sliding on the grass so hasn't had it at all her own way since becoming champion. Elena Rybakina will be the likely semi-final opponent for Swiatek with her likely foe being a perennial Quarter-Finalist in Jessica Pegula who perhaps had the best chance of defeating Vondrousova last year.
Rybakina will have a point to prove too after coming into the tournament last season unwell after a bout of Covid from Roland Garros. She struggled to even move properly in the lead-up to the tournament so will be hoping this time to make a run towards a second title.
In the other half of the draw, Aryna Sabalenka will also hope to seal a maiden Wimbledon crown. She faces off against likely Qinwen Zheng who would make another Grand Slam Quarter-Final in reaching this point. The victor would likely face Coco Gauff. The American can finally get over the hoodoo of facing Swiatek prior to the final. As second seed, she would instead be on a collision course with Aryna Sabalenka. Jasmine Paolini would be her opponent after the seventh seed reached the Roland Garros final.
Will it play out like this? Time will tell but certainly the ducks are in a row for the big names when it comes to reaching the latter stages.
