Wimbledon 2021: Iga Swiatek defeats Hsieh Su-Wei in straights sets to advance into round 2- The 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek, who made her second main draw appearance in Wimbledon, has defeated Hsieh Su-Wei in straight sets in round 1 of Wimbledon 2021. The 20-year-old provided a stunning display on the court as she emerged victorious in the straight sets by the same margin – 6-4, 6-4. It was her first Wimbledon main draw victory.

Swiatek, who overcame Hsieh on the way to last year’s French Open title, made a strong start on Court One with a break in the opening game but allowed her unorthodox opponent to hang on before taking the first set on serve.

Half of Hsieh’s eight career wins against top-10 players have come at Grand Slams and the 35-year-old showed why she can be a difficult prospect for the best of players as she broke back after dropping her serve early in the second set. Moving the ball around and peppering her game with trademark double-handed slices and drop shots, Hsieh stayed firm until 2-2 before she served a double fault and sent a lob long to hand seventh seed Swiatek the advantage again.

Swiatek lost in the opening round in 2019 but is no stranger to success at the All England club, having won the girls’ title a year earlier, and the aggressive 20-year-old raised her level further to close out the win with an ace.

Poland’s Iga Swiatek had won Wimbledon as a junior in 2018.
