US Open: Swiatek wins for the first time in New York

US Open

Pole Iga Swiatek won the US Open for the first time on Saturday. In the final in New York, the world No. 1 defeated Anas Jabeur of Tunisia, who had no chance of two and a half sets, in 1:50 hours 6:2 7:6 (7/5) and thus secured their third Grand Slam victory one. The 21-year-old has previously won the French Open twice (2020, 2022).

Swiatek triumphed as the first pole in US Open history and went on to extend her final, flawless Grand Slam stage record to 3-0. On the other hand, Jaber also lost her second Grand Slam final two months after Wimbledon.

She also failed to become the first African and Arab Grand Slam winner in the professional era. “I really tried, but Ega didn’t make it easy for me, I don’t particularly like her at the moment,” Jaber joked.

After a false start, Jaber improved in the second set and was unable to reverse

“Big challenge”

“This tournament was quite a challenge. We’re in New York, out loud, it’s crazy,” said Swiatek, who has won all of her last 10 finals on the tour.

Swiatek started great and barely allowed her opponent to develop with the aggressive and powerful game. Above all, the return of the top seed has always been dangerous. Jabeur, who starred in the semi-final against Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia, had to make many mistakes and looked helpless.

When the stakes increased in the second set, she suddenly continued and forced her opponent to break the tie. The resistance came too late and was ultimately futile. As a consolation, Jaber jumped from fifth to second in the world rankings.
