And the world No 1 admitted that her third Major title came as a surprise despite her dominiant 2022 season, which saw her win six-successive titles and go on a 37-match winning streak that ended at Wimbledon. Asked how she pulled off another impressive title win, the top seed said: “I don’t know honestly.
“I’m just not expecting a lot, especially before this tournament. It was such a challenging time and coming back after winning a Grand Slam is always tricky even if Roland Garros was the second one.” Swiatek also admitted that New York was new ground for her despite her previous success at the French Open, adding: “This was a really challenging one, it’s New York, it’s so loud, it’s so crazy.
“So many temptations in the city, so many people I’ve met who are so inspiring, it’s really mind blowing for me.”
