“I feel pretty confident and pretty happy which doesn’t happen often at Wimbledon so I am happy that this is the first year where I feel like I learned a lot and I can adjust my game to grass courts more.”

Although Swiatek missed her first break point when she netted, she took the next as Sorribes Tormo hit into the net.
The advantage didn’t last long as an attacking slice from Sorribes Tormo earned her a break-back chance, which she took when the world No. 1 hit long.

 

 

But Swiatek ripped a cross-court forehand to make it 15-40 next game and secured a 3-1 lead after a Sorribes Tormo unforced error.

 

 

It was the backhand that won her the set though as she powered a shot into the corner that Sorribes Tormo couldn’t return.
