By India Today Web Desk: World number one Iga Swiatek stormed into her maiden WTA Finals semi-finals after defeating Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in straight sets in Fort Worth, United States on Thursday.

Swiatek outlasted Garcia 6-3, 6-2 after taking control with an eight-point run. The Polish player has won all four sets she has played so far, while dropping only 10 games.

Swiatek’s win took her to 14-1 against opponents ranked in the top 10 this year. It is to be noted that all 14 wins came in a row, the longest single-season unbeaten streak in 15 years. Garcia is, incidentally, the only WTA Finals player who has defeated Swiatek during the Poland Open this year.

No.6 Garcia will play No.8 Daria Kasatkina on Thursday for the other semi-final spot.

Kasatkina defeated American rising star Coco Gauff after the latter gave away the lead and saw her hopes ending in a 7-6(8-6), 6-3 contest. Gauff suffered a 0-4 loss in her debut at the season-ending tournament, being 0-2 in singles and 0-2 in doubles alongside Jessica Pegula. Gauff was the youngest player in both categories since Anna Kournikova in 1999.

Kasatkina, whose best Grand Slam result was the semi-final run at the 2022 French Open, trailed 1-4 against French Open runner-up Gauff. The Russian began to find her way by hitting more shots to Gauff’s forehand and that worked out well.

Kasatkina accumulated five of the six games to go 6-5. Gauff tried to make a comeback, breaking a tiebreaker where she led 3-0 and 4-2. She eventually fell short by putting a forehand into the net to wrap up a 24-stroke exchange.
