Swiatek matches record set by Serena Williams, inches closer to Venus

............................................

"There seems to be nothing that Iga Swiatek cannot do at the moment, as the Polish star has reached another milestone, this time one held by WTA legend Serena Williams."

"Swiatek has been on a 34-match winning streak, which began with her title win at Doha in February."

"This incredible feat of winning 34 straight matches is the longest winning streak in women's singles since 2000, when Venus Williams won 35 consecutive matches."

"The older Williams' sister won Wimbledon, Stanford, San Diego, New Haven, US Open and Olympic, before having her streak snapped by Lindsay Davenport in the final of Linz."

"Although Swiatek is within one win of Venus Williams, the World No.1 has tied Serena Williams for the second longest winning streak since 2000 with 34 wins."

"Serena accomplished this feat in 2013, winning Miami, Charleston, two Billie Jean King Cup matches, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros,"

"before having her streak snapped by Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round of Wimbledon."
