Introduction:

The tennis world witnessed a shocking upset as World No.1 Iga Swiatek was defeated by the unseeded and uninhibited Yulia Putintseva in the third round of the ladies’ singles at Wimbledon. The Kazakh, known for describing herself as a “gangster on the court and an angel off it,” achieved the greatest victory of her career by coming from a set down to claim a 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory over the top seed.

The Match Breakdown

Swiatek started strong, winning the first set under the closed roof of No.1 Court, seemingly on track to extend her impressive winning streak. Before this match, Swiatek had not lost a tennis match since mid-April, amassing 21 consecutive victories across various tournaments. Her winning spree, akin to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, had been unstoppable, covering cities from Madrid to Rome to Paris, and now London.

“It feels really great. I don’t know how I did it. I was focused on playing fast and not giving her any time and it worked,” Putintseva said, expressing her elation and crediting the supportive crowd. “My coach told me to stay intense in every point. I’ve always been fired up since I was a kid.”

Swiatek’s Struggles on Grass

Despite her dominance on clay, highlighted by her fourth Roland-Garros title win last month and a US Open crown, Swiatek has yet to make a significant impact at Wimbledon. Her best performance on the grass courts remains a quarter-final appearance last summer.

Former top 10 player Andrea Petkovic had noted Swiatek’s promising form before this match, saying, “She’s looking calm and relaxed and is treating grass as if it was clay. Hitting her heavy spin forehands as if she were still in Paris.” Many had anticipated a potential fourth-round clash between Swiatek and Jelena Ostapenko, but Putintseva’s victory has altered the narrative.
