Iga Swiatek added yet another bagel to her popular bakery with a 6-2 6-0 victory over Sara Sorribes Tormo in the second round of Wimbledon. Since the start of the 2022 season, the Pole leads the Hologic WTA Tour in match wins (105), titles (11) and sets won by a score of 6-0 (38).
Playing her sixth consecutive Grand Slam as the top seed, Swiatek spent just 70 minutes on Centre Court in her first career encounter with Spanish world No.84 Sorribes Tormo. Although a minor setback occurred early on when Swiatek lost her serve while leading 2-0, she regained control and didn’t allow her opponent to create any more break point opportunities. With an incredible performance, Swiatek dominated the match, delivering an impressive 26 winners while Sorribes Tormo managed only three.
Wimbledon stands as the only major where the four-time Grand Slam champion Swiatek is yet to reach the quarterfinals. Her No.1 ranking is on the line for the second consecutive Slam. For Aryna Sabalenka to have a shot at surpassing Swiatek and claiming the top spot, the Belarusian must reach the final. However, if Swiatek manages to advance to the quarterfinals, Sabalenka’s chances hinge on winning the entire tournament.
