Iga Swiatek is the new US Open 2022 champion! On the Flushing Meadows hard-courts, the Polish tennis player wins her third career Slam and strengthens her status as number one. Another defeat in the match for the title for Ons Jabeur, who had to live with the disappointment even on the lawns of the All England Club against Elena Rybakina.
Swiatek thus reaches seven titles in 2022, the last to succeed was Serena Williams, but also ten in her career after having essentially lost only one first career final. The last player to win two Grand Slams in the same year was Angelique Kerber in 2016.
Swiatek takes it all: second Slam this season
After almost two hours of play, the Pole seals the sweetest of the successes at 6-2 7-6 (4) and Emma Raducanu succeeds in the golden roll of the last Slam of the season. Some recriminations for Jabeur who basically enters the game too late.
Swiatek can enjoy the view of the New York sky from a rather privileged location, that of Arthur Ashe Stadium. Below the highlights
