Swiatek celebrates her third Grand Slam triumph at the US Open

Iga Swiatek fell backwards onto the hard court and covered his face with both hands. When the Polish tennis player had recovered emotionally, she grabbed her cell phone on the bench and answered the first congratulatory messages.

The world number one won her third Grand Slam title at the US Open in New York after a strong performance. The two-time French Open winner from Poland defeated the Tunisian in the final on Saturday Ons Jabeur earned with 6:2, 7:6 (7:5).

“This tournament was a big challenge. We’re in New York, it’s loud, it’s crazy,” said Swiatek, who has won all of her last ten finals on the tour. “I honestly don’t know,” the dominator replied when asked about the secret of her strength in the finals.

Swiatek triumphed as the first Pole in US Open history and extended her final record on the Grand Slam stage to 3-0. Jabeur, on the other hand, also lost her second final in a major tournament two months after Wimbledon. She also failed to become the first African and Arabian Grand Slam tournament winner in the professional era. “I really tried, but Iga didn’t make it easy for me,” Jabeur said, joking, “I don’t particularly like her at the moment.”

“Iga Swiatek is aggressive, moves well, serves well – she plays perfect tennis,” said the German tennis star, who was absent due to pregnancy Angelique Kerber as a commentator at Eurosport.
