At a sun-drenched Louis-Armstrong, Svidek started strongly with a double break, before being swept 4-1.
Yet she knew how to recover immediately to entertain the engagement of Paolini on two other occasions.
Sviatek turned her game up even more in the second set, not giving a single drop to Paulini, finishing in 1:07.
“A first lap like that is a good test, it allows you to find the rhythm, it allows you to put the right settings”, she satisfied herself warmly.
After an irresistible spring that included 37 wins and six titles in a row, including Roland-Carros in June, Sviatek has experienced a rough preparation on hard courts this summer, marked by two eliminations out of 8.e in Toronto and Cincinnati.
This official victory is enough to give her New York campaign confidence beyond the 8th stage.e Finals at the US Open.
