Swiatek powers into Roland Garros semifinals with a win over qualifier Trevisan

After ousting title favorite Simona Halep in the fourth round, Polish world No.54 Iga Swiatek continued her fine form by dominating surprise quarterfinalist Martina Trevisan of Italy 6-3 6-1 to advance to her first Grand Slam semis at the French Open.

The world No.159 Trevisan opened the match with a 2-0 lead, but Swiatek won ten of the next twelve games to record yet another quick victory this fortnight. The 19-year-old hasn’t lost a set en route to the semis and today’s encounter that lasted one hour and 18 minutes was her longest at the 2020 edition of the clay-court Grand Slam.
