Swiatek defeated fourth seed Kenin in consecutive sets in the final in just one hour and 24 minutes. 21-year-old Kenin won the Australian Open title earlier this year, but surrendered to the 19-year-old and world number 53 player Swiatek. Swiatek thus became Poland’s first player to win a Grand Slam title.
Swiatek is the first ‘teen (up to 19 years) player to win the title since Eva Majoli in 1997. Swiatek defeated 2018 Chaminian Simona Halep and 2019 runner-up Marketa Vendrosova in a one-sided match during their title campaign.
