Iga Swiatek left a fun moment at the Madrid Open awards ceremony after reacting startled to the confetti explosion. The Pole defeated Aryna Sabalenka in an epic final 7-5, 4-6, 7-6(7) and secured the title she was missing on the surface.
The Queen of Clay achieved her 9th WTA 1000 and 20th professional title of her career. Swiatek has 8 of her titles on clay (including 3 French Open titles) and continues to extend her record as the best player on the surface in recent years.

Epic Swiatek - Sabalenka final

Rarely do the world No. 1 and No. 2 liven up a tournament final. The Swiatek-Sabalenka duel was also a rematch of last year's final where the Belarusian took the title. This time they delighted fans with the longest final in the tournament's history at 3 hours and 11 minutes, surpassing the 2018 final between Petra Kvitova and Kiki Bertens.
With an extraordinary outcome where both saved match points to stay in the game for the title, Swiatek finally claimed the victory. The world No. 1 continues to distance herself at the top of the WTA Rankings and couldn't hide her excitement at securing the win.
At the awards ceremony, emotions were still running high for both players, and Swiatek had a fun reaction after receiving the trophy as she reacted to the noise of the confetti explosion and jumped startled at a moment when she almost dropped the champion's trophy.
