Iga Swiatek will meet Ons Jabeur in the Italian Open 2022 final. The Pole world no.1 thus reaches twenty-six consecutive victories, of which twenty in two sets. In this row, she only has seven long sets and she has got thirteen 6-0.
Even the semifinal at the Foro Italico with Aryna Sabalenka turns out to be little more than a competitive training for Iga, who takes just over seventy minutes to seal the 6-2 6-1 final.
After the success in Madrid, the first of an African tennis player in a WTA 1000, Ons Jabeur wins an absolutely crazy match against Daria Kasatkina and at least reaches the final also in Rome.
The two will be the fourth direct confrontation in the TWA Tour, with the world number one that she won in Washington in 2019 and the Tunisian who instead has in Wimbledon and Cincinnati last year.
