When it seemed that Iga Swiatek's streak of 6 titles in a row, 136 days without losing and 37 consecutive victories was going to be extended, it came to an end.
The Polish number one in the world fell to the French Alizé Cornet this Saturday at the Wimbledon grass tournament.
Cornet, 32 years old and No. 37 in the world, was the protagonist to counter Iga's string of victories, defeating her with partials of 6-4, 6-2 in one hour and 33 minutes.
Swiatek ended her streak of 37 consecutive wins, surpassing the mark of Venus Williams (35) as the tennis player with the most consecutive games won in the XNUMXst century.
Iga was the big favorite to win the third Grand Slam of the year after the lack of Australian Ashleigh Barty, who retired in March.
