World No. 1 Iga Swiatek captured her fourth consecutive title on the WTA tour in Stuttgart, earning a nod from tennis legend Chris Evert.
Swiatek smothered Aryna Sabalenka 6-2, 6-2, in Stuttgart in what is her 23rd straight match won, to continue her dominance in the tour.
Evert, an 18-time Grand Slam champion and former World No. 1, praised Iga Swiatek on Twitter.
“Wow! @Iga_swiatek is on a mission… She is dominating women’s tennis; fourth tournament win in a row… pulling away from the pack of incredible talent.”
Evert owns one of the most notable achievements in tennis: She went undefeated on clay for 125 matches in 24 tournaments from August 1973 to May 1979.
The former World No. 1 is a seven-time Roland Garros champion and won three titles at the US Open when it was played on clay from 1975 to 1977.
