Swiatek earned her spot in the U.S. Open after a come-from-behind victory in the semifinal round. After dropping the first set to Aryna Sabalenka, Swiatek rebounded, ultimately taking the match 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.
Saturday’s matchup between Swiatek and Jabeur also made U.S. Open history. Swiatek became the first Polish singles player to both reach and win the U.S. Open Championship. Meanwhile, Jabeur is the first African, Arab, and Tunisian female to play in the U.S. Open final.
