At the 3rd round of the Mutua Madrid Open 2021, world no.1 Ashleigh Barty will challenge last edition of the Roland Garros winner Iga Swiatek. The young Polish girl also did not run into one of her best days, but unlike her next opponent, she ended her second round match in two sets against Laura Siegemund.
In the first set, both Swiatek and Siegemund hesitated to serve, but the rival broke once more. In the second set, the game that ended the match can be considered the manifesto of Swiatek's suboptimal performance. The number 17 in the world, at 5-3 in favor, in fact wasted 10 match points in a single game before taking advantage of the eleventh by taking advantage of Siegemund's bad volley.
Below the highlights of the match.
