French Open Winner Swiatek Beats Bencic in Adelaide Final

February 27, 2021

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — French Open champion Iga Swiatek beat Belinda Bencic 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday to win the Adelaide International at Memorial Drive.

The 19-year-old Polish player did not drop a set in five matches and lost just 22 games all week.

Swiatek seized momentum midway through the first set. Leading 3-2, she broke Bencic’s serve when the Swiss player double-faulted three times.

Swiatek had 22 winners and just six unforced errors in a dominant performance, showing that her success at Roland Garros was no fluke.

“It wasn't like one time during the French Open,” she said. “It gives me more confidence that I’m (a) more developed player and I can play good more often. It just gives me motivation.

"I feel like sometimes I have weeks when everything clicks, and that’s just the effect of the work we’re doing.”
