Swiatek Absolutely Destroys Competition To Send Poland Into United Cup Quarterfinals

by Erik Virostko

Iga Swiatek showed why she's the world no. 1 on the WTA Tour at the 2024 United Cup, not giving her opponents a chance in two commanding victories.

After beating Brazil with three wins in the tie, Poland took on Spain for a spot in the quarterfinals of the 2024 United Cup, as both countries won their first tie against the South American country.

In the first match of the tie, Hubert Hurkacz, who struggled in his match against Thiago Seyboth Wild, took on Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who on the other hand, had no issues against the Brazilian.

The Polish player managed to win the opening set 6-3, but he lost the following two as Davidovich Fokina won the important opening match 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, but little did he know that after that his team would win only three more games.

After that, Iga Swiatek took on Sara Sorribes Tormo, and she proved to everyone that she's ready for the 2024 season as the highest-ranked player on the WTA Tour.

The two met last year at Wimbledon, when the Polish player allowed her opponent to win only two games, and even though after that, Sorribes Tormo showed a better performance in Beijing, it was still a two-set win for Swiatek.

This time around, the Spanish player did not improve her statistics, as Swiatek once again cruised towards the finish line, despite facing four break points in the opening set, winning the match 6-2, 6-1.

What followed after that is a very rare sight in professional tennis, but fans in Perth got to see it. Swiatek and Hurkacz teamed up for mixed doubles against Davidovich Fokina and Sorribes Tormo, and they did not allow their opponent to win a single game, winning the match 6-0, 6-0.

As a result, the Polish duo secured a spot in the quarterfinals, and they will now await who their opponent will be, as it will be the best runner-up from the three groups played in Perth, which can be even Spain.
