Full domination of Iga Świątek.  The Pole will play for the final!

Iga Świątek will play for the WTA Rome final. The Pole confidently defeated Madison Keys in the quarterfinals of this tournament. The rival had no chance.

Iga Świątek storms through the WTA tournament in Rome. So far, the one who took the biggest toll on her was the former leader of the world ranking – Angelique Kerber, who played tennis like she was in her best days.

Iga Światek dominated in the first set

The Pole's opponent in the quarterfinals of this tournament was Madison Keys, who defeated Sorana Cirstea the day before. There was a lot of controversy during this match, because during it, a protester stormed onto the court and spilled something on the surface. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured and the person was quickly pacified, but the match had to be interrupted and was resumed only after about 45 minutes.

Both players faced each other during the last semi-final in Madrid. At that time, the first racket in the world was on top and advanced to the final without any major problems. It was the same in this meeting. Iga Świątek set her pace from the very beginning and broke Madison Keys at the very start. Then the Pole defended her pass, not without problems, and took a 2-0 lead. From the score of 2:1, the Pole won four games in a row and triumphed 6:1, recording another “baguette” in the statistics.

Madison Keys came out motivated for the second set

Iga Świątek was very motivated and during the break between sets she went to warm up without and with the balls. Madison Keys was calmly waiting for the end of the break and apparently had to sort everything out in her head, because she was putting a lot of pressure on her opponent from the beginning of the second game. The American even had two break points, but she did not use any of them. The player from Raszyn took advantage of her opponent's lack of effectiveness, turning the game around and sealing the triumph.

Since the score was 1:1, Iga Świątek again showed off a great series of three winning games in a row, which brought her closer to the final triumph. Ultimately, the match ended with the score 6:3. Iga Świątek will face the winner of the match Coco Gauff – Qinwen Zheng in the final.
