WTA Rome – 6-0, 6-0 : Iga Swiatek gifle Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova au 2e tour

Everything is fine with her, thank you very much. While one could wonder if Iga Swiatek was not going to accuse the blow of her defeat in the final in Madrid, the Pole responded in the best possible way on Friday on the court. She thus perfectly started her career in Rome where she is the outgoing double champion, crushing the Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, former finalist at Roland-Garros who fell to 506th place in the world, with the final score of 6-0, 6-0 in 1h07 in the 2nd round of the Italian WTA 1000. She will be opposed to the American Bernarda Pera or the Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko for a place in the round of 16.

While Aryna Sabalenka was trapped at the entrance to Foro Italico on Thursday, confessing in passing her state of exhaustion, Iga Swiatek is fueled. The Pole showed on the court on Friday that she has what it takes to bounce back after suffering the law of her Belarusian rival last week in Spain. Determined, hard-hitting, she made Pavlyuchenkova live a real nightmare, constantly attacked on her second ball (3 points won only behind on… 23 or 13% success!), Sending a winning return after a winning return. Result, the Russian is therefore left “by bicycle” and the competition is prevented. It will be necessary to pull out all the stops to prevent Swiatek from retaining his crown.
