Iga Swiatek Wins Poland Open Following Shocking Wimbledon Exit

It was quite a shocker to see Iga Swiatek exit Wimbledon in the quarterfinals after entering the tournament as the top seed, but she quickly returned to form. Women’s world no. 1 emerged as the winner at the Poland Open and lifted a trophy without dropping a single set. Swiatek was on top of her game on home territory and cruised to a comfortable victory in Warsaw. She easily defeated Germany's Laura Siegemund 6-0 6-1 in just 68 minutes without facing a single break point. To make the whole thing even more impressive, Swiatek won Poland Open without dropping a set, but stayed humble throughout the tournament and said things weren’t as easy as they seemed. "It's not easy to play in Warsaw, but I'm so happy that we could manage and do everything we could today, after a pretty tiring day yesterday. I wanted to put it all in and go for it. I'm pretty happy that I did," said Swiatek following her victory. This victory comes shortly after she entered Wimbledon as the top seed, only to be eliminated in the quarterfinals. Swiatek lost to Ukrainian player Elina Svitolina, who was given a wildcard to compete at this Grand Slam.
