Iga Swiatek surged past Aryna Sabalenka in an utter epic 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 to win the Madrid Open and seal a fourth title of the season in the longest final of the season. But she also produced a mic drop moment in a dig towards those calling women’s tennis boring.
"Who is going to say that women's tennis is boring now?" Swiatek said. "Congrats as well to Aryna, because we both had an amazing effort today.”
“Aryna.. to many more finals.. it’s always a challenge playing you. Thanks for motivating me and forcing me to be a better player. I want to thank my team. I’ve had pretty nice speeches before so I don’t know what else to say to make it feel special.
“But I think what you saw on court was pretty special anyway. Thank you for sticking with me through the ups and downs. For understanding and motivating me.. because without you I wouldn’t be here… I hope we’re gonna continue progressing. That’s the most important thing at the end. I want to thank my family who’s watching.”
