The US Open 2022 has a new women's singles champion: Iga Swiatek! The Pole had understandably taken his breath away after his 37-game winning streak. Fresh from four successes in the next eight games, Iga Swiatek returns Iga Swiatek at the foot of the end of a simply senseless season.
On the hard courts of Flushing Meadows, the Polish tennis player wins the third Slam in her career and strengthens her status as number one. Another defeat in the match for the title for Ons Jabeur, who had to live with the disappointment even on the meadows of Church Road against Elena Rybakina.
Swiatek thus reaches seven titles in 2022 (the last to succeed was Serena Williams) but also ten in her career after having essentially lost only the first final in career. The last player to win two Grand Slams in the same year was Angelique Kerber in 2016.
Swiatek takes it all: second Slam this season
After almost two hours of play, the Pole seals the sweetest of the successes at 6-2 7-6 (4) and Emma Raducanu succeeds in the golden roll of the last Slam of the season. Some recriminations for Jabeur who basically enters the game too late.
Solid and precise with the service, present in response, Swiatek immediately moves to 3-0 and even strengthens the advantage at the foot of the first small goal. Jabeur fails to create play, to become dangerous on the left diagonal.
She remedies, yes, the break of disadvantage and somehow enters the game, but she switches off the light again and no longer moves the score until the end of the set. Apparently the dynamics do not change even in the second fraction, with Swiatek continuing to keep the ball in the game and expanding the streak of consecutive games to 7-0 (almost eight).
Practically one step away from the abyss, Jabeur returns wildly to the game and gives life to a completely different match. Even if she in the decisive game she is unable to completely remedy the final disadvantage mini-break.
On the threshold of two hours of play, Swiatek can enjoy the view of the New York sky from a rather privileged position, that of Arthur Ashe Stadium.
