Ruthless Iga Swiatek dishes out double bagel to Wang | Tennis News

NEW DELHI: seeded Iga Swiatek of Poland delivered a flawless display, demolishing China Wang Xinyu 6-0, 6-0 Saturday. Swiatek’s remarkable form keeps her firmly on track to successfully defend it French Open title, while simultaneously sending a warning to its competitors.
Aiming to win his third trophy in Paris in five years, Swiatek showed his strength as he progressed effortlessly to the fourth round.
In her three matches in Paris, she conceded just eight matches and impressively won four of six sets without conceding a single match.
“Of course I’m happy. It was a very good performance from me and I was happy that I was disciplined and took care of everything,” Swiatek said.
“Every point is important to me and at the highest level, every point counts,” added the 22-year-old world number one. “You always have to be a bit disciplined.
“I will use this skill later when I have close matches.”
She wasted no time showing who was in charge, beating world number 80 China three times to seal the first set in 28 minutes.
Wang’s powerful forehand was meant to be a major weapon, but he instead let it go, with the Chinese racking up a dozen unforced errors en route to the first of two bagels.
Swiatek, who also pulled off the double bagel feat in Rome last month, refused to be drawn into Wang’s power rallies and instead ran his opponent.
She finished her masterclass after 51 minutes with a lucky net cord on her first match point.
