Swiatek routs Pliskova in Italian Open final

Rome, May 17 (AP): If Iga Swiatek continues playing like this, she might have no problem defending her French Open title when the year’s second Grand Slam starts in two weeks. The 19-year-old Pole routed Karolina Pliskova 6-0, 6-0 with what is known as a double bagel score in an Italian Open final that lasted just 46 minutes Sunday. Swiatek lost just 13 points. Definitely not the best day for me, Pliskova said. Iga was playing great tennis today. It was the first double bagel in a WTA final in five years, since Simona Halep overwhelmed Anastasija Sevastova in Bucharest. I think you have just days like this in tennis where things are not going your way, Pliskova added.
