Swiatek allowed her to score only a point on her opponent’s serve. She broke it, increasing her advantage. As time has shown, the break was a signal that the Pole was gaining momentum. She won game after game, once again beating the Romanian. In the end, she won with a score of 6:1, which clearly could have upset Kirstya.
The 22nd ranked player started the second game with a win. However, her achievements ended there, as the Rashin woman again came to the fore.

The Romanian couldn’t help herself, but with the Pole playing like that, few players in the world have anything to say. Swiatek won again with a score of 6:1 and quickly advanced to the next stage of the tournament in Doha.
