Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Alize Cornet ends Iga Swiatek’s 37-match unbeaten run, defeats World No.1 in straight sets in third round

Cornet’s victory over Swiatek is her first complete-match win over a reigning World No.1 since notching a similar result in the third round of Wimbledon in 2014. Then, Cornet stunned No.1 Serena Williams 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to advance to her first Round of 16 at The Championships.

“It reminds me of the time I beat Serena on the same court, eight years ago exactly,” Cornet said on court after the win. “This court is a lucky charm for me. I think these kind of matches are what I’m living for, what I’m practicing for every day. I knew I could win it. I had the belief.”

The Frenchwoman had good reason to believe she could be the one to stop Swiatek. Cornet came into Wimbledon off a semifinal run in Bad Homburg, where lost in three tight sets to eventual champion Caroline Garcia.

Cornet played a clean, veteran match to unwind Swiatek’s power game. Cornet jumped out to a 3-0 lead thanks to two early breaks and held Swiatek off from there. Swiatek was able to get on the board by breaking Cornet in a long fourth game, but Cornet’s insurance break proved its worth.

Swiatek looked primed for one of her trademark comebacks in the second set, as she broke early for a 2-0 lead. But the Pole’s game never clicked in. Unable to clean up her unforced errors, Swiatek immediately ceded back her break advantage and Cornet ran away with the set from there, winning the last six games of the 93-minute match.
