After beating Andreescu at the quarter-final of the Italian Open, Iga Swiatek now won 20 consecutive matches on the WTA 1000 level. With this win streak, she now became only the third player to have 20-plus wins in WTA 1000 tournaments. Notably, 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams is second on the list with 26 consecutive wins. She did it in 2013 between Miami Open and Cincinnati Open. With 28 wins, former Danish player Caroline Wozniacki maintained her no.1 position. Her streak came from Montreal in 2010 to Miami in 2011. 

Meanwhile, Iga’s streak started at the Qatar Open, where she won the title by beating Anett Kontaveit in the Final. Then, she won the ‘Sunshine Double’, as she continued her winning streak. Now at the Italian Open, she won three matches in a row and Andreescu is the latest one to face her wrath.

In the meantime, the counting continues for Swiatek, as she won 26 back-to-back matches in the WTA tour this season. The last time she lost a match was at the Dubai Open, when the former French Open champion, Jelena Ostapenko, beat the Polish player in the round of 16. Since then, the Polish star didn’t look back, as she won 4 consecutive titles, and three of those were WTA 1000 titles.

Along with her match-winning streak, she is also on a trophy-winning streak, as she is vying for the Italian Open as well. In the semi-final, she will face the no.3 seed, Aryna Sabalenka, a well-known opponent for her. Previously, Swiatek beat the Belarusian tennis player in the final of the Stuttgart Open final, to clinch her first clay-court title of the season. So, it will be a revenge match for the no.3 seed.
