Iga Swiatek in action

Iga Swiatek demolished her more senior opponent Kristyna Pliskova in just 54 minutes at the Samsung Open to reach her maiden WTA Tour final.

The 17-year-old from Poland dropped just one game as she beat Pliskova from the Czech Republic 6-0, 6-1.

Swiatek hit 28 winners and made just 13 unforced errors compared to the 20 unforced errors and 10 winners from the 27-year-old Pliskova.

The teenager will take on Polona Hercog, who overcame Fiona Ferro 7-5, 6-4, in Sunday’s final.

“I saw her in a few tournaments, but I’m still new on the WTA Tour,” she said of her next opponent.

“My coach will probably tell me everything – tactics and stuff – so I will be ready.”
