Iga Swiatek, who is now ranked first, defeated Laura Siegemund 6-0, 6-1 in the Poland Open final to claim her fourth championship of the year and her first at home.
Over the duration of the competition, the French Open winner didn’t drop a set. Swiatek has also triumphed this year in Doha and Stuttgart.
“I would want to thank my family and my team. After a rather exhausting day yesterday, it’s not easy to play in Warsaw, but I’m really pleased that we were able to cope and do everything we could today,” the Polish player stated.
“I wanted to go all out and give it my best. I’m glad I did, really.
Only earlier on Sunday did Swiatek reach the championship game after defeating Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium in the semifinals, 6-1, 7-6 (6). At 6-1, 5-5, that match was called off on Saturday night owing to darkness.
In the 68-minute final, Swiatek had a considerably easier time, breaking her German opponent five times and never having to face a break point.
