Swiatek found herself engaged in an early tussle against former world number one Pliskova, yet skillfully held her ground by emerging victorious in the majority of extended exchanges. She showcased a potent forehand and adept court coverage to maintain her presence in the contest.
Iga Swiatek said,
“This first match was a challenge for me and In this challenge, especially against a player like that.”
“She used her experience in the first set, but I am happy that I could close it in a tiebreak. In the second set, I was more solid because I really wanted to reset, I think about what i could do better, and I am pretty glad that I did that.”
While she serving the match, Swiatek surrendered a break to Pliskova due to her initial double fault of the set. However, the Polish player promptly retaliated by breaking back in the ensuing game, ultimately clinching the victory.
