Melbourne: World No. 1 Iga Swiatek retained her Italian Open title after beating seventh-ranked Ons Jabur 6-2, 6-2 in the final to win the fifth consecutive WTA Tour title. With this, the Polish star extended her winning streak to 28 consecutive matches. Swiatek is only the second player ever to win four or more WTA 1000 titles in a season. Prior to that, Serena Williams won five in 2013. The 20-year-old has won every WTA 1000 she has played in this season, winning in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami and now Rome. She has currently won five of the last nine WTA 1000 titles.

Swiatek won the first WTA 1000 title of her career in Rome last year. She is the ninth player to win back-to-back titles in Rome and the third youngest player to win two titles in Rome, behind only Chris Evert and Gabriela Sabatini. Swiatek is the fourth player in the 2000s to win five or more tournaments in a row, after winning titles in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome.
