She wins and wins: Iga Swiatek has also won the tennis tournament in San Diego. With the success, she joins a line-up of superstars
World number one Iga Swiatek from Poland has continued her run of success this tennis year by also winning the tournament in San Diego, California. The 21-year-old won the final against Croatian qualifier Donna Vekic 6-3, 3-6, 6-0 after 107 minutes on Sunday (local time).
“It was a really close match and quite long,” said the 21-year-old Swiatek after her triumph: “We definitely felt the intensity. In the end, I wanted to be the one to put the last ball in. “
For Swiatek, who also won the French Open and US Open in 2022, it was her eleventh WTA Tour title overall. She celebrated eight tournament victories this year alone. Only Martina Hingis (2000), Serena Williams (2002, 2013), Kim Clijsters (2003, 2005) and Justin Henin (2003, 2007) achieved this feat in this millennium.
