Tennis: no pity for Sorribes, Swiatek is in the quarterfinals in Madrid

World No.1 Iga Swiatek stormed into the quarter-finals of the WTA 1000 tournament in Madrid by knocking out Spaniard Sara Sorribes (55th) 6-1, 6-0 in 67 minutes on Monday.

In three matches played on Spanish clay, the three-time winner of Roland-Garros, on the throne of world tennis for the hundredth week, only lost nine games. Five for her entry into the running against the Chinese Wang Xiyu (52nd), two against the Romanian Sorana Cirstea (30th), and only one on Monday.

In the second set, Sorribes only scored five points in total. His only game won was ultimately the very first of the game, on a break. She then lost the next twelve.

For a place in the last four, Swiatek will face world No.14 Beatriz Haddad Maia, victorious earlier over world No.6 Maria Sakkari 6-4, 6-4.

For her first tournament on clay in 2024, Swiatek was stopped in the semi-finals by world No.4 Elena Rybakina in Stuttgart (Germany) a week ago.

The 22-year-old Pole reached the final in Madrid in 2023 and lost to world No.2 Aryna Sabalenka.
