World number 1 Iga Swiatek made light work of American Coco Gauff in the repeat of the French Open final at the San Diego Open to reach her 11th semifinal of the year.

The Pole took just 65 minutes to romp to a 6-0, 6-3 win to move closer to claiming her eighth women’s title in 2022.

Swiatek found her rhythm quickly, using her powerful forehand to cause early trouble for the American who failed to win a single game while committing 11 unforced errors. The 6-0 “bagel” was 20th for Swiatek this season, the most since Serena Williams’ 25 in 2013.

Another easy set looked to be on the cards with Gauff 2-0 down and starting at a 30-love hole before managing to hold her serve three times until Swiatek completed the inevitable win.

The victory is Swiatek’s 62nd of the season and having won Indian Wells, Miami, and the US Open, the 21-year-old is now 22-1 in the United States this season.

Swiatek, after beating Gauff, will take on Jessica Pegula next for a spot in the San Diego Open final. The Pole’s bracket is similar to that of the French Open where she also defeated Zheng Qinwen, Pegula and Gauff.

Pegula reached the stage after beating compatriot Madison Keys 6-4 7-5 earlier in the day.

Danielle Collins, who defeated Spanish second seed Paula Badosa and Donna Vekić who beat Aryna Sabalenka will contest the other semifinal.
