Iga Schvetek was eliminated in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon

In 2018, Świątek won the junior edition of Wimbledon, but at the senior level she did not score well in this tournament. Her quarter-final appearance this year was her first in London.

The start of the match against Svitolina indicated that it might not end in the quarter-finals. Coach Thomas Wiktorowski’s charge broke its opponent in the opening game. Although Switolina led to a 2:2 draw, but after a moment, Świątek was leading 5:3.

It was at this point in the 22-year-old’s match against Raszyn that something started to fail. The Ukrainian unexpectedly easily won the next four matches and, as a result, won the first set. Of the last 14 points, she won by 12.

Before the second game started, Świątek had several minutes to think about what happened on the field and confer with the staff. All because of the upcoming rain, the organizers ordered a respite to close the roof.

When play resumed, Svitolina easily won the service game. Later, both players alternated their best and weakest moments. First, Świątek took the lead 3: 1, then lost 3: 4.

In the following matches, the tennis players held their serve and a tie-breaker was required. In it, the initiative was taken by Svitolina, who was already leading 4-1. However, Schwijk turned his fortunes around and leveled the match.

The third set started with Świątek winning a service game, but then Switolina gave concerts. The 28-year-old from Odessa, who returned to action in the spring after a maternity break, won five straight matches and was one step away from reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals for the second time in her career.

Świątek managed to reduce the loss to 2: 5, but the Ukrainian woman, running for victory, did not miss the opportunity. I used the second match ball.

This was the second meeting of tennis players in history. Svitolina avenged the 2021 tournament quarter-final defeat in Rome.

Tuesday’s defeat may have another negative impact on your savvy. If Aryna Sabalenka reaches the final in London, she will become the new leader of the world ranking. On Wednesday, the Belarusian will play in the quarter-finals with American Madison Keys, seeded No. 25.

Because of the maternity break, Svitolina is only ranked 76th in the WTA list, but six years ago she was ranked third in the world. For the seventh time in her career, she managed to beat the current leader in the ranking. He has 17 tournament wins and a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games (2021).

In the semi-finals, Svitolina will meet Marka Vondrousova. The Czech fourth seed won the American Jessica Pegula 6: 4, 2: 6, 6: 4.

Iga Świątek – Elena Świątek 5:7, 7:6 (7:5), 2:6
