Iga Swiatek makes ‘disgusting’ admission ahead of US Open final

Iga Swiatek and Ons Jabeur will face off in the US Open final on Saturday, with the world No 1 bidding for her third Grand Slam title while the Tunisian will be trying to win her first after coming close in the recent Wimbledon final. Swiatek is the favourite going into the match with a 9-0 record in finals but was close to crashing out in the previous round when she trailed Aryna Sabalenka 2-4 in the final set of the semi-final, and shared the “disgusting” reason she made it to her maiden US Open championship match.

Swiatek has enjoyed a wildly successful season, reaching world No 1 and winning her second French Open crown – the last of six successive titles she lifted earlier in the season. And the Pole is continuing her impressive year after reaching a maiden US Open final, where she will bid for her third Grand Slam title and first away from a clay court.

The 21-year-old didn’t have an easy way into the final as she lost the first set of her semi-final against seventh seed Sabalenka, taking an off-court bathroom break before storming back to take the second 6-1 and force a decider. She then found herself a break down in the final set with the Belarusian leading 4-2, and reeled off four games in a row to book her spot in the final.

After her 3-6 6-1 6-4 win, the top seed was asked what she told herself during the bathroom break to be able to turn things around and win the second set so easily, and admitted that it was something else that helped her gain momentum. “It’s more what I did,” the world No 1 laughed.
