Iga Swiatek downs Jana Fett in straight sets to clinch the LONGEST win streak in women’s singles tennis this century and book her place in the second round at Wimbledon

Iga Swiatek downs Jana Fett in straight sets to clinch

Iga Swiatek might just be the most reliable train in Britain at this moment.With a 36th straight win carrying her into Wimbledon’s second round, the question is what it will take for this immense streak to end.



The Croatian and world No 252 fought back in the second to win three games against Swiatek




Granted, these are grass courts, not clay. And this is women’s tennis, which is no place to hunt for certaintiesBut Swiatek, the world No 1 on a roll of six consecutive tournament victories, is fast becoming one of the great bankers in sport, even if her 6-0, 6-3 win over Jana Fett was perhaps not as smooth as it sounds.

The first set was a blitz – the numbers are clear on that. But it was the second, which briefly had the peril of a 1-3, 0-40 deficit, that pointed to the 21-year-old’s sporadic discomforts.


Within it, there were enough mistimed ground strokes and soft serves to at least raise the issue of whether she will reach the same untouchable levels on grass.
