World No. 1 Iga Swiatek was left positively stunned after finding a tiramisu inside her US Open trophy. On Saturday, Swiatek defeated Ons Jabeur 6-2 7-6 (5) to lift her first US Open title. Swiatek, who often treats herself with tiramisu after big wins and titles, found one inside her US Open trophy.
The US Open organizers knew what would make Swiatek happy and made sure to surprise the Pole.
Swiatek is now a three-time Grand Slam champion
It has been a great season for Swiatek, who is now a three-time Grand Slam champion and has won seven titles this season.
This season, Swiatek has won two Grand Slam titles. After winning the US Open, Swiatek was asked to compare this year's French Open and US Open titles. Swiatek admitted that the bigger pressure on her was at the French Open, but the US Open was more demanding tennis and physically-wise.
"Well, it’s hard to compare. For sure at Roland-Garros, I always feel like I have more control. Philippe-Chatrier is kind of my place. Here on Ashe, I still need to figure out the atmosphere. I wasn’t sure, before the match, if this is actually my place.
I was pretty focused and I didn’t let myself get into these thoughts. In Paris, the pressure was really on and everybody was kind of expecting me to win. Here I managed to go ahead my expectations lower, and also I feel like people were not expecting a lot from me on hard court.
So mentally, Roland-Garros was little bit tougher. But tennis-wise, and physically, here, for sure, it was tougher," Swiatek said. Swiatek has now played three Grand Slam finals and has three Grand Slam titles in her collection.
Swiatek knows how to get the job done when she is playing a final as Jabeur has been beaten twice by the Pole in finals this year.
