Challenge not met by Coco Gauff
This was only the second Grand Slam final of Iga Svantek. Inga, who describes herself as a big fan of Rafael Nadal, has established her dominance on the red gravel like the Spanish superstar. In front of him in the final was 18-year-old Coco Gauff, who had reached the final of a Slam for the first time. Coco’s challenge wasn’t too difficult for Iga, who has stunned many experienced players.
In the first set, Iga had won without any trouble, but in the second set, Coco tried to make a comeback. The American had won the first two games in the set to take a 2–0 lead, but then Iga showed their flair and shattered all hopes to win the title with a 6–1, 6–3 match.
Getting success in 2022
This year is proving to be a good year for the Polish star. After the disappointment of the Australian Open, Iga has won successively and no player has been able to stand before them. Meanwhile, Iga also took the first place in the WTA rankings in April following the sudden retirement of Australian Open champion Ashleigh Barty. She had reached the number one rank for the first time and after the latest success, it is not easy to remove her from there at the moment. After this title, Iga’s eyes will be on Wimbledon, the third and most prestigious Grand Slam of the year to be held this month.
