Iga Swiatek swept past Coco Gauff to reach the Italian Open final on Thursday where Aryna Sabalenka will stand in her way of a third title and her bid to match a Serena Williams record.


World No. 1 Swiatek eased to a 6-4, 6-3 win over US Open champion Gauff for an 11th straight clay-court victory while second seed Sabalenka defeated Danielle Collins 7-5, 6-2. Poland’s Swiatek defeated third seed Gauff for the 10th time in 11 encounters. 


Swiatek ended with 26 winners and broke her American opponent four times and now stands one victory away from duplicating the Madrid-Rome clay trophy double achieved by Williams 11 years ago.
