Iga Swiatek’s incredible winning run continues at Wimbledon

by Kolkata Today

Poland’s tennis star World No.1 Iga Swiatek records a 37th straight win to advance to Round 3, defeating Pattinama Kerkhove 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

Iga Swiatek needed just over two hours on No.1 Court to quash the spirited effort by 30-year-old Pattinama Kerkhove and move into the third round at SW19 for the second straight season.

“I’m pretty happy it’s 37 but I want to add to that number,” said Swiatek, who equalled Martina Hingis’ streak in 1997, and who next plays Frenchwoman Alize Cornet.
Much like Roger Federer in his prime, Swiatek’s dominance over tennis is a kind of benevolent dictatorship.
She’s charming in more than one language, so other players don’t seem to hold it against her when she keeps on going through draw sheets, with her streak bringing her six titles already, in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart, Rome and Roland-Garros.
She now moves a little closer to winning a seventh title in a row. As a former girls’ singles champion at the All England Club, Swiatek knows how to play on grass, though she is yet to go beyond the fourth round of the ladies’ singles.
