Iga Swiatek Comes From Behind To Defeat Marketa Vondrousova On Day 2 Of 2023 WTA Finals

Iga Swiatek

World No. 2 Iga Swiatek got off to a slow start in her first 2023 WTA Finals match against Wimbledon Champion Marketa Vondrousova.

Swiatek was down 2-5 in the first set, looking unsettled and rattling off unforced errors.

Then, she turned it around in astounding fashion.

In the second set, Swiatek was firmly in command and finished it with a 6-0 result.

For Swiatek, it is about settling her feet and playing her game.

She accomplished that while Vondrousova began to struggle on serve and with errors and bad bounces.

Swiatek lost the World No. 1 ranking this year to Aryna Sabalenka.

Though Sabalenka controls her destiny with the points and could ultimately end the year as World No. 1, Swiatek’s win is a confidence boost with the come-from-behind effort and puts her on the path to contend for it.

The second match of the night will feature Coco Gauff and Ons Jabeur.
