Iga wins US Open doubles title for the first time in 2016

Iga wins US Open doubles title for the first time in 2016

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek wins her third major title at the US Open after the Australian defeated Dominika Cibulková.

The Czech beat the American in straight sets in just 58 minutes during her final match of the season.

The World No. 1 is ranked No. 1 for a record sixth time in the world.

The victory in the tournament’s second Grand Slam doubles final took Iga’s tally to five US Open titles and three Grand Slam doubles crowns.

Iga admitted she can’t believe the feat after winning the trophy in front of her family and family friends.

“I’m not even thinking about it. I don’t know if I have words to explain this. It happened. It’s unbelievable,” Iga said after defeating Cibulková.

Iga said it was a “dream come true” to win the prestigious event for the first time.

“I wanted to win this so badly. I had my dream come true to win this. I did it. It’s incredible, really, really, really, really, really something.”

The 28-year-old’s winning streak has begun earlier this season than it did in the previous year, and she ended 2016 with a 15-match winning streak.

She has reached the final of four tournaments this year, including a semi-final in her maiden US Open semi-final and winning her first match in straight sets in her second tournament since the tournament switched to men’s doubles in 2014.

Iga said it still had a lingering effect on her even though she now had three titles.

“I know what it can do. I saw how long I was able to play, how many matches I’d be able to play, how many tournaments I was able to play, how many US Open I was able to play, how many WTA I was able to play, how many ITF I was able to play, how many Grand Slam I was able to play, the number of matches I played before my career was about to end. That was the feeling of ‘wow’ that I had when I was winning these things,” she said
