Wimbledon: the winning streak of the Polish tennis player Iga Swiatek ended with the defeat of the Frenchwoman Alize Cornet

Swiatek, who lost 6-4 6-2 to Cornet in the third round match, got off to a slow start in the first set, losing the first three games before bouncing back to take the next two. The two would split the next four games, but Cornet would eventually win the set.

In the second set, the momentum seemed to change as the 21-year-old Swiatek took a 2-0 lead, but Cornet quickly regained control by winning the next six games to end the match.

“Honestly, yes, I’m usually hard on myself. Here I know how I felt before matches, I know how I felt when I was training. Let’s just say I didn’t feel at my best, so I’m kind of aware that this could happen,” Swiatek said of the post-match winning streak.

The 37-match winning streak of the Polish two-time Grand Slam champion, which began in February, was the longest since Martina Hingis in 1997.

“Now I have no words. It reminds me of the time I beat Serena on the same court exactly eight years ago. This court is a talisman for me,” Cornet said after the victory.
