The WTA World No. 1 Iga Swiatek once again proved why she is atop the rankings when she defeated Aryna Sabalenka in the Stuttgart Open final. Going into the final, fans expected a tight contest between Swiatek and Sabalenka, the current World No. 2. However, Swiatek dominated the Belarusian from start to finish and went on to win the final in straight sets.
The clash of the two heavyweights in women’s tennis also happened to be the first time in over 5 years that the World No. 1 and the World No. 2 faced off in a WTA Tour final. Last time around, it was a Danish diva who clashed against a Romanian superstar in the land Down Under.
Iga Swiatek seals Stuttgart title and ensures recent history is not repeated
