Mistakes were massive... This time it was completely contrary,' says Iga Swiatek after her shocking US Open exit.
Sunday's Round of 16 loss against Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 3-6 1-6 at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York eliminated Iga Swiatek from the US Open 2023.
The Pole had not lost a set before Sunday's encounter but lost to Ostapenko.
The 20th seed broke Swiatek's serve on match point with a precise forehand winner, extending her career head-to-head record to 4-0.
Swiatek said that her'mistakes were so significant' against Ostapenko and that she would need to analyze her performance after her unexpected exit.
I didn't understand why I couldn't return when my mistakes were so big.
My return is good. When my game works, I focus on the same things as in the first set and overall.
It's unknown. "I must watch," she said.
I'm amazed my level changed that much because I generally play bad at the start and then catch up or problem solve.
It was the contrary this time "said Tennis Now.
Swiatek will lose her world number one spot to Aryna Sabalenka after the competition.
