As the first Polish woman in history. Swiateková conquered New York and is the champion – Tennis – Sport

Polish tennis player Iga Swiateková became the winner of the women’s singles at the US Open for the first time in her career.

The tournament team defeated Tunisian Ons Jabeurová, seeded five, 6:2, 7:6 (5) in the final and won the third Grand Slam title. This season and in 2020, she triumphed at Roland Garros in Paris.

Twenty-one-year-old Swiateková is the first ever Polish champion of the final event of the big four. At the same time, she is the youngest three-time Grand Slam winner since 2008, when the Russian Maria Sharapova, at the age of 20, found the conqueror at the Australian Open.

Swiateková takes home from New York a bonus of USD 2.6 million before taxes and 2000 points in the WTA world ranking. The Polish woman won her seventh trophy this year in Flushing Meadows.

It was the second unsuccessful Grand Slam final for Jabeurová, she lost to Jelena Rybakinová of Kazakhstan in the title duel at Wimbledon. Despite Saturday’s loss, it will return to second place in the new edition of the ranking.

No African or Arab player has managed to advance to the finals of the US Open. So far, the last African Grand Slam singles champion was Johan Kriek from South Africa, who won the Australian Open in 1981.

Swiateková started the match well, when in the second game she broke Jabeurová’s serve with clean play and after confirming the break, she took the lead 3:0. Although the Tunisian subsequently reduced it to 2:3, the next three games became the prey of the Pole.

Swiateková benefited from great movement around the court, she returned excellently, her shots had the optimal length. Jabeurocá tried to play variably, but made too many unforced errors in important moments.

The beginning of the second period had the same scenario as the beginning of the first, when Switaeková bounced Jabeurová to 3-0 after a fast break. Stopballs, which are her big weapon, did not work well for the Tunisian.

The Pole almost did not mess up in exchanges and confirmed why she is such a dominant player on the WTA Tour this year. Jabeurová still fought, leveled at 4:4 and in the ninth game she had three break points.

However, Swiateková turned them away and used the very first match point in the tiebreak at 6:5. She adjusted the mutual balance with Jabeurová to 3:2.
