Iga Swiatek in action

Iga Swiatek won her second career WTA Tour title with a victory over Belinda Bencic in the final of the Adelaide International.

The French Open champion cruised to a 6-2, 6-2 win to complete a dominant week in which she did not drop a set throughout.

“For sure, there is something that clicks,” mused Swiatek on the scale of her dominance during her title runs.

“Not only in my head but also tennis-wise. I feel pretty good on court. I feel like sometimes I have weeks when everything clicks, and that’s just the effect of the work we’re doing.

“It’s good for me because I can see that I can play good tennis for the whole week.

“It wasn’t like one time during the French Open. It gives me more confidence that I’m more developed [as a] player and I can play good more often. It just gives me motivation.

“Our goal right now is to have that more often, because I know I can play great tennis. It’s just all about planning, aiming for the specific tournament to have the best shape possible.”

As a result of her win, the 19-year-old will move to a career-high 15th in the latest world rankings on Monday.
