After winning the Italian Open on her return to the WTA tour, Swiatek had some challenges as she face some difficulties against some players but she did not drop a single set in her journey to the title. Since the Indian Wells, Swiatek has dropped only a single set in the last 20 matches. The last time she did was against Russia’s Luidmila Samsonova in the Stuttgart Open semifinals.

After a very tiring week, the youngster was seen enjoying her time in Rome and also going out to have some special delicacies. She uploaded pictures of her visiting a local restaurant on her social handles. She there highlighted a tiramisu as her fans feel that it is a special surprise that she arranged for herself for winning the Italian Open.

Iga Swiatek is having a season defining year as she proves to the world that she is here to dominate and play at a very high level and is the favourite to win the upcoming Roland Garros. While we expect the other players to step up, Swiatek simply is the best at the moment and by some distance.

She won WTA titles in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and now in the Rome Masters. This was her fifth WTA title and four WTA Masters title in a year and it could have been more as she decided to take a break from the Madrid Open due to injury which saw the Ons Jabeur win her first WTA title in Madrid as she finished a runner up here in Rome. Swiatek has dropped only one set in her last 20 matches that too against an in-form Luidmila Samsonova in the semifinals in Stuttgart. The young Pole was as close to flawless as it gets in the Italian Open.
