Last Saturday, after a rainy day, Iga Świątek and Elina Switolina won the quarter-finals 6:2, 7:5, and a few hours later they defeated Coco Gauff 7:6, 6:3. As a result, she found herself in the final in Rome, where the top-ranked leader Karolina Pliskova (Karolina Pliskova) is waiting for her, and she is currently ranked 9th in the world rankings.
The Polish woman entered the meeting as if in a daze. She quickly broke the opponent and took a 2-0 lead. However, nothing foreshadows what will happen in the next few minutes. In three consecutive Christmas games, she only missed one move, broke the Czech team again, and has already led by 5:0. In the next game, she used the ball in the second set and broke Pliskova’s serve for the third time, winning the first set in just 21 minutes.
The process of the second set of competitions is similar. Swiatek quickly won the pass, and Pliskova seemed to resign more and more every minute. After the second game, she threw the racket, but nothing changed. In the first five games, Polka lost only 5 points and defeated the Czech women twice. Pliskova, who remained in the game, was in a more difficult situation, but the Poles won, winning 6-0 and 6-0 throughout the game!
Although the results of the game are incredible, it is worth paying attention to the next statistics. Swiatek only lost 4 moves in the first set! In the second game, she did not count as one game and lost five more games. Throughout the game, Pliskova only scored 13 points in two sets.
After Swiatek was dismantled in the final of the Rome Championships, it has been determined that the WTA ranking will make great progress. The Polish woman ranked 15th before the competition and she will win the best “10” on Monday! She will be ranked 10th, and Serena Williams will be ahead of her.
