Rome Open: Iga Swiatek defeats Aryna Sabalenka to reach Rome Open final

Iga Swiatek won the French Open in 2020 as a 19-year-old

Iga Swiatek took her winning run to 27 games by reaching the Rome Open final when she defeated Aryna Sabalenka 6-2 6-1.

The 20-year-old produced a display of precision and variety in contrast to her Belarusian opponent by breaking six times.

The defending champion then takes on Ons Jabeur or Daria Kasatkina.

World number one Swiatek has the chance to take five consecutive tournament victories after victories in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami and Stuttgart.

Tunisian Jabeur, who will face the Russian Kasatkina in the second semifinal, became the first Arab or African player last week to WTA 1000 title in Madrid
