The Pole hammered 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu 7-6 (7-2) 6-0 on Friday to reach the Italian Open semi-finals and extend her winning streak to 26 matches.

The sport was shocked when Australian Ash Barty announced her sudden and immediate retirement while holding the No.1 ranking two months ago.

Global Tech News Daily

With Serena Williams not having played in nearly a year, there were plenty of questions about who might step up and assert themselves as the new woman to beat.

Well, since February, nobody has beaten Swiatek, who assumed the No.1 spot by default when Barty removed herself from the rankings.

Considering her prowess on hard courts, the often-injured Andreescu has been tossed around as a potential No.1 too.

But Swiatek slowly wore the Canadian down in a lengthy first set as she dictated the tiebreaker by moving her opponent from side to side.

In all, Swiatek produced 27 winners to Andreescu's 12 and converted all six of her break points.

Swiatek's semi-final opponent will be third-seeded Aryna Sabalenka, who rallied past Amanda Anisimova 4-6 6-3 6-2 for her first victory over the American in five tries.
