LONDON, July 9 (US): Iga Swiatek was twice within one point of being knocked out of Wimbledon on Sunday, a single point from the kind of disconcerting defeat in a venue that has caused her far more trouble than any other Grand Slam champion.
Going down the set 6-5 in the second set against Belinda Bencic, No. 1 seed Swiatek was able to redeem herself and take away a pair of match points. I erased the first with a booming forehand, and
Ranked second with a powerful backhand, Swiatek was soon once again not only in the competition, but in control, according to the Associated Press.
After a frustrating late afternoon on Center Court, and a near defeat early in the evening shadows, Switek managed to reach his first Wimbledon quarter-final by coming back 6-7(4), 7-6(2). ), 6-3 win over 14th seed Bencic.
Swiatek, who will face Ukraine semi-finalist Elina Svitolina, extended her unbeaten run to 14 matches, including winning her fourth major title at the French Open last month.
