Iga Swiatek is all set to face Madison Keys in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open 2024, taking place in Rome on May 14. Notably, Iga defeated Bernarda Pera and Yulia Putintseva to take her place in round number four, where she faced Kerber. However, Kerber gave a great fight to her, but Swiatek defeated her and broke down in the second set to score 7-5, 6-3. Meanwhile, Keys also fought hard into the fourth round with a three-set win over Osorio and Maia.

Meanwhile, Iga Swiatek revealed that she was going to have a great challenge against the Keys. Notably, both star players last met at the Mutua Madrid Open 2024, where Iga completely outclassed her in the semis.

“For sure, playing against Maddie is not easy. The score was pretty one-way in Madrid. It’s kind of easy for your mind to just drift off sometimes. The most important thing is to stay focused and disciplined," Swiatek said.

On the other hand, Keys’ match in Rome was temporarily suspended at 3-1 in the second set after two protesters jumped onto the court.

“As soon as I saw them come over the barrier, my first thought was like, ‘Should I go tackle one of them?’ But I stopped myself. And then the chair (umpire) started yelling at me to go sit down. Unfortunately, it’s starting to become a little bit of a common thing that’s happening," Keys said.
