Swiatek Rolls Past Sorribes Tormo, Reaches Madrid Quarterfinals

Iga Swiatek's dominance at the 2024 Mutua Madrid Open continued unabated as she dispatched Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-1, 6-0 to reach the quarterfinals. The top seed has been in imperious form, dropping just eight games in her first three matches.

Swiatek's victory over Sorribes Tormo was a masterclass in clay-court tennis. The Pole matched her opponent's topspin with her own, and her aggressive approach to the net proved too much for the Spaniard. Swiatek struck a stunning 27 winners to just 14 unforced errors and converted six of nine break point opportunities.

Sorribes Tormo, a former world No. 32, had upset Victoria Azarenka in the third round, but she was no match for Swiatek's relentless power and precision. The Spaniard managed to break Swiatek in the opening game, but the world No. 1 responded with a break of her own and never looked back.

In the quarterfinals, Swiatek will face No. 11 seed Beatriz Haddad Maia, who upset No. 5 seed Maria Sakkari. Swiatek has a 1-1 record against Haddad Maia, but she will be the heavy favorite to advance to the semifinals.

Another player who has impressed in Madrid is Ons Jabeur. The No. 8 seed knocked out No. 9 seed Jelena Ostapenko 6-0, 6-4 to reach the quarterfinals. Jabeur will face the winner of the all-American fourth round between Madison Keys and Coco Gauff.

The 2024 Mutua Madrid Open is shaping up to be a thrilling tournament, with Swiatek and Jabeur emerging as the favorites. The quarterfinals promise to be filled with exciting matches, and the fans in Madrid are in for a treat.
