    Iga Świątek Unstoppable in Paris: Dominates Vondrousova to Reach Roland Garros Semifinals

    World No. 1 Iga Świątek demonstrated her exceptional clay-court prowess with a decisive victory in the Roland Garros quarterfinals, defeating Czech player Marketa Vondrousova 6-0, 6-2.

    Świątek began the match with intense focus, conceding just one point in the first three games and swiftly taking a 3-0 lead. She dominated the first set, with Vondrousova struggling to avoid a shutout. Despite defending four break points in the fourth game, Vondrousova failed to hold her serve, and Świątek capitalized, winning the set 6-0.

    Despite the one-sided first set, Vondrousova showed resilience at the start of the second set, finally holding her serve to avoid a repeat of Anastasia Potapova’s fate in the previous round. At 1-1, Vondrousova even had a break point, but Świątek elevated her game to fend off the challenge.

    The 23-year-old Świątek then regained her momentum, breaking Vondrousova’s serve in the fourth game and establishing a 4-1 lead. Although Vondrousova managed to hold her serve once more, Świątek’s dominance was unyielding. She secured two match points in the eighth game and clinched the victory on the first, advancing to the semifinals with an emphatic performance.

    Świątek’s next challenge will be against American Coco Gauff, who overcame Tunisian Ons Jabeur in their quarterfinal encounter on Tuesday.
