Ruthless Elena Rybakina destroys Iga Swiatek


Wimbledon 2022 champion Elena Rybakina absolutely destroyed Iga Swiatek in the World Tennis League. In the first match of the World Tennis League final, Rybakina, representing the Hawks team, defeated Swiatek of the Kites team 6-3, 6-1.

In the first game of the match, Rybakina saved a break point and avoided going down for an early break. After saving a break point in the first game, Rybakina earned the first break of the match in the second game to open up a 2-0 lead.

In the third game, Swiatek had two break points to win back the break, but didn’t realize it as Rybakina went up 3-0. After missing out on three early break points, Swiatek made his fifth break point in game five and cut the deficit to 3-2.

Missing an early break didn’t affect Rybakina though, who broke Swiatek again in the eighth game to move up 5-3. In the ninth game, when Rybakina was serving for the first set, Swiatek lost three break points as the Kazakh managed to serve for the first set.

Rybakina did the job impressively against Swiatek in straight sets

After winning the first set, Rybakina broke Swiatek in the first game of the second set to win a set and a break. In the fourth game, Rybakina saved a break point and went 3-1 up.

After claiming an early break and later saving a break point, Rybakina also broke Swiatek in the fifth and seventh games to complete an impressive two-set victory. Rybakina has been excellent throughout the entire World Tennis League.

In her first match at the World Tennis League, Rybakina defeated Aryna Sabalenka 0-6, 6-1, 10-6. Rybakina then defeated 2022 WTA Finals champion Caroline Garcia 7-5, 6-1. After claiming victories over Sabalenka and Garcia, Rybakina also put in a strong performance against three-time Grand Slam champion Swiatek.

Previously, Rybakina and Swiatek met at Ostrava 2021. Back then, Swiatek claimed a straight-set victory. The World Tennis League is not a WTA event, but Rybakina now at least knows that she certainly can play well against Swiatek.
