Iga Swiatek looks like she is following her idol Rafael Nadal‘s footsteps on the clay, but she had begun this victory march by winning three of her five consecutive titles on hard court, and she has not fallen short by even an inch on the clay. She looks more dangerous on the red surface. Swiatek won her final encounter with Ons Jabeur in straight sets to claim her 5th consecutive tournament victory and her 2nd consecutive title in Rome.
Iga Swiatek extended her win streak to 28 matches as she stomped the Mutua Madrid Open winner. Swiatek closed the match with a 6-2, 6-2 score. Not that there was any doubt before the match, but she is by far the biggest favorite in the French Open. Swiatek will hope that she continues her rampage throughout the coming weeks at the Roland-Garros and then some.
Iga Swiatek believes she can go past the record of the highest win streak in the open era.
Iga Swiatek has completely reshaped herself in a matter of months. She took over the number one spot after Ashleigh Barty retired and has made the spot her own with five consecutive tournament victories. She has also put her winning streak to 28 and is currently the fourth-highest on the list, just behind Venus Williams, Serena Williams, and Justine Henin. If Swiatek wins the French Open, she will surpass Henin and will be just two wins behind the highest mark.
Swiatek will enter the French Open with a focus to usurp her dominance even more with a win at Roland-Garros. She has raised herself to such a level that it would an upset of colossal amount if she doesn’t win the French Open.
