Although the number 1 of the new gentlemen will not be far ahead, there is no doubt who the best woman is: Iga Swiatek.

The 21-year-old Pole won two Grand Slams this year and added the US Open to the French when she defeated Ons Jabeur 6-2, 7-5 on Saturday night.

With Australian Open winner Ash Barty retiring and Wimbledon a surprise winner in Elena Rybakina, Swiatek remains above the pack.

She certainly has a championship mentality when it comes to finals, as this was the 10th straight set win in a row.

Her first set was flawless against the Tunisian, who put up a rearguard fight in the second to match her second place finish at SW19 this summer.

Swiatek wasn’t at her best in the early rounds, but showed an invaluable ability to get the job done when she struggled.

Modest and level-headed, Swiatek knows she’s not naturally suited to the US Open. But if she can make it here, she can make it anywhere.

“At Roland Garros I always feel like I have more control,” she said. ‘On Arthur Ashe I still have to figure out the atmosphere. I wasn’t sure I was at the level to win yet, especially at the US Open where the surface is so fast.

‘It’s something I didn’t expect. For me it is a confirmation that sky is the limit.’

She succeeds Emma Raducanu, who is in Portoroz in Slovenia this week, against Dayana Yastremska in the first round.
