Iga Swiatek dropped just one game at the WTA Finals, crushing Jessica Pegula in 59 minutes to become the new WTA Finals champion and secure her 2nd consecutive Year-end No.1!
Another great final was added to her rich resume by Iga Swiatek, who leveled Jessica Pegula with 6-1, 6-0 in less than an hour, to become the new WTA Finals champion.
Both were making their 1st appearance in the final of the event, as both had not lost a set in their previous 4 games in Cancun. Only one, however, continued in the same way and completed her improbable tournament without losing a set.
That was Swiatek, who never allowed Pegula into the match, with her dominating game. Of course, it wasn’t a good day for the American, but apart from the mistakes she made and the big disparity in the short points, she also lost most of the big rallies, unable to compete with the Pole.
Only one game was lost by Swiatek, who completed the final in less than an hour. An image of course not unusual for her, since she has won many finals in a similar way.
It was Swiatek’s 2nd major title of the season (after Roland Garros), with the Pole regaining the world No.1 ranking at the last minute from Aryna Sabalenka, who she also beat in straight sets in the semi-finals. Thus, he deservedly achieved the Year-end No.1, for the 2nd consecutive year.
In total she reached 6 titles in her very good season and 17 in her career (17-4 in finals). She has won 14 of her 17 titles in the last 2 seasons!
