    Iga Świątek Knocked Out of Wimbledon

    Iga Świątek’s Wimbledon campaign ended unexpectedly early this year. The World No.1 fell to Kazakhstan’s Yulia Putintseva, who triumphed after losing the first set, with scores of 6-1, 6-2 in the subsequent sets, thoroughly outplaying the Polish star.

    Świątek started strong, creating early break points, but Putintseva consistently defended them. Świątek easily held her serves and broke Putintseva in the sixth game without losing a point. Despite a late challenge from Putintseva, Świątek saved multiple break points with powerful serves and forehand winners, securing the first set.

    The momentum shifted dramatically in the second set. Putintseva quickly gained control, breaking Świątek in the fourth game and elevating her performance significantly. The set featured numerous lengthy and impressive rallies, but Świątek struggled to match Putintseva’s elevated level of play. The Kazakh player broke Świątek again, decisively winning the set 6-1.

    Despite a brief break between sets, Świątek couldn’t regain her form, committing 37 unforced errors by the end of the match. Meanwhile, Putintseva played consistently well, winning nine consecutive games and securing multiple breaks. Świątek held her serve in the fifth game of the final set but couldn’t break back. She saved two match points, but Putintseva clinched the victory on the third.
