. She moves and glides on the court in a manner that somewhat resembles Novak Djokovic "Sportskeeda cites Cornet as saying.

Prior to the match, Cornet emphasised the importance of Swiatek's first serve and said she would need to focus on the Pole's second serve

"She strikes the ball with terrific force and very early contact, but this is not your typical 'boom, boom.

. Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove, a fortunate loser, forced Swiatek, who had won her last 37 matches, into a three-setter in the second round.
