Well, well, well. Iga Swiatek has gone and done it again. Many said it couldn't be done, but in true Iga fashion she proved all of the critics wrong to win the Miami Open without even dropping a set!
She not only now becomes the newest WTA world number one after this win, but she enters the record books as the first person to ever win all of the first three Masters championships of the calendar year.
This run of now seventeen matches unbeaten is highly impressive, when the last time we saw her drop a set was against Angelique Kerber at Indian Wells eleven matches ago.
It isn't even that she has just won the Sunshine Double, but the way in which she won it has been inspiring, and in the last three tournaments she has won eleven sets either 6-1 or 6-0. Utter domination from someone who could be a future hard court Grand Slam champion.
The final itself against Naomi Osaka, started off as a close run affair with the first Osaka service game of the match going to deuce many times and lasting ten minutes long before Osaka eventually held.
Despite Iga's first serve misfiring for the majority of the first set she managed to stay on serve until she would strike on Osaka's serve and take the break to make it 3-2 before consolidating the break in the next game.
After this moment the Polish number one never looked back taking the first set 6-4. She didn't face one break point in the entire match, and the second set she was well into her flow state, putting the pressure on early and noticing Osaka's head dropping after being broken in the opening game she went all out attack and ended up taking the second set 6-0 to claim the Miami Open championship!
Iga's Bakery was serving yet again today, and in every Masters final she has dished out at least one breadstick (1) or a bagel (0) to her opponent.
A massive congratulations to Iga for her fantastic start to 2022, and guess what's next, that's right, her favourite surface, the clay court season is imminent!! JAZDA IGA!!
