Iga Swiatek has won both of her grand slam titles thus far on red clay courts, where her game is most proficient and her mind is most at ease.
At the US Open, she certainly appears to be catching on to the hard-court thing.
In a match that featured a total of 13 service breaks, including 10 in the second set alone,
the No. 1-ranked Swiatek defeated American Jessica Pegula on Wednesday night to get into her maiden semi-final at Flushing Meadows.
As it occurred, Iga Swiatek defeated Jessica Pegula in the quarterfinal of the US Open of tennis.
Two times, at 5-4 and 6-5, Swiatek, a 21-year-old Pole who previously won the French Open in 2020 and this June,
failed to serve out the triumph. Though she performed better in the tiebreaker, Swiatek ran to her guest box,
hrew her white racket away, and yelled after No. 8 seed Pegula missed a backhand.
