San Diego: World No.1 tennis player Iga Swiatek took home her eighth title of the year, fending off a spirited effort by qualifier Donna Vekic to prevail 6-3, 3-6, 6-0 and win the San Diego Open.

Top-seeded Swiatek needed 1 hour and 47 minutes to earn the 11th WTA singles title of her career with her tour-leading 64th match-win of the year on Sunday.

Poland’s Swiatek has the most match-wins in a single season (including WTA Tour events and Billie Jean King Cup play) since Serena Williams won 78 matches in 2013.

Swiatek has had a nearly perfect year at American events, with a 24-1 win-loss record on U.S. soil in 2022. She added the San Diego trophy to triumphs in the States at the Sunshine Double of Indian Wells and Miami, as well as her third career Grand Slam title at the US Open.
