Krawczyk is coming off the Roland Garros where she picked up her first Grand Slam title, playing alongside Joe Salisbury (Memphis '14). The victory one-upped last year's performance where her and women's doubles teammate Alexa Guarachi were the runners-up to Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic. The 27-year-old Krawczyk now has 13 professional doubles titles to her name, this being her third of 2021 and first ever mixed-doubles crown.
Krawczyk has finished in the top-three of all 10-previous Grand Slam doubles tournaments she's entered. She's competed in at Wimbledon just one time prior, finishing second in the 2019 tournament.
