Iga Swiatek had to come back from multiple losses to earn his third Grand Slam final appearance and first outside the country.
She lost the first set, winning two of twelve on second serve points, and fell back from 0-2 and 2-4 in the final set to beat No. 6 Arina Sobolenko, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.
It was her 14th career top 10 win and her second in two weeks, but her first win in three sets. In addition, it also extended her winning streak against the top 10 players to nine matches. She now has 56 wins in the 2022 season.
The tennis player made an unforgettable start on the hard court, winning one match each in Toronto and Cincinnati, and never made it past the fourth round at the US Open. But he was always going to qualify for the final and proved it by winning four out of six rounds in straight sets.
The first Polish woman to reach the final of the US Open now claims to be the youngest three-time Grand Slam champion since Maria Sharapova in 2008. The top seeds have reached the US Open final 29 times and won the title 20 times, with Serena Williams (2013-2013). 14) and Justine Henin (2007) are the last of them.
Ons Jabeur broke a 13-match winning streak of first Grand Slam semi-finalist Caroline Garcia in just 66 minutes. Having already beaten the Frenchwoman, she repeated her past success, 6-1, 6-3, posting eight aces and 21 winners.
For the first time this season, she did not set a single breakpoint in this match. She was not a clear favorite against recent champion Cincinnati going into the semi-finals, but got her most decisive win in two weeks.
The tennis player also arrived in New York after a slow start to the backswing, winning just two matches in three warm-up events and even retiring in Toronto with a stomach injury.
Overall, Jabeur holds a record of 3-6 in the championship rounds, with all titles taken in the last 15 months: Birmingham in June 2021 and Madrid and Berlin earlier this season. She lost both finals on hard court, losing to Daria Kasatkina in 2018 in Moscow and Garbin Muguruza in 2021 in Chicago.

Head to Head
Before that, both tennis players met four times, and personal meetings were equal 2-2. Swiatek won his previous meeting at the 2022 Italian Open in a row.
It’s a fitting matchup to end the 2022 Grand Slam season, a battle between the two players who have led the tour in match wins since the start of 2021.
|Iga Swiatek win 1.60||Ons Jabeur win 2.56|
Swiatek and Jabeur were the top players on the WTA Tour this year, so it’s only fitting that the two are set to fight for the US Open crown.
Swiatek has had some feed problems lately. In the last two matches, she lost the serve 11 times. However, the world number one made up for it by returning in exceptional order. Her heavy forehand and equally stable backhand are hard to break.
Jaber is very difficult for many players due to her varied playing style, but Swiatek found the answer to her tactics quite easily in their previous match in Rome.
Prediction for this match: Iga Swiatek win in straight sets.
