Iga Swiatek, the world number one and three-time French Open champion, showcased her dominance on clay as she breezed past Romania’s Sorana Cirstea with a commanding 6-1, 6-1 victory, securing her spot in the last 16 of the Madrid Masters.

In a one-sided third-round encounter lasting just over an hour, the Polish top seed demonstrated her prowess on her favored surface, leaving little opportunity for her opponent to mount a challenge.

Swiatek, who finished as the runner-up in Madrid last year, expressed her respect for her upcoming opponents, Belarusian Victoria Azarenka and Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo.

Commenting on her next potential matchups, Swiatek acknowledged Azarenka’s experience and versatility across surfaces, while also recognizing Sorribes Tormo’s solid and fighting spirit, especially with the home crowd support behind her.
