Iga is still far from her level but it's good to see her on the court and winning again. Jazda!

I knew this would be a tough match. Stephens has been playing well and Iga has been off the last couple tourneys. Iga still not 100% of what she was this year, but this is a good confidence-building win. Her next round won't be easy either. Iga the first to win 50 matches in a season since Barty did it in 2019.

The fact Iga made one of the worst her matches of the season but still won shows her immense talent. But even when she looses, she looses in 3 sets with drama till the end. It's obviously she lost form but her talent and passion to the tennis didn't dissapear. Exactly that makes me feel optimistic she will come back to the champion mood soon. The form is temporary, the class is permanent! Jazda!

Man, great play from Sloane. She's in some great form rn. And another stellar result from Iga. What else can you say. Definitely still deserves the #1 spot.

Sloane played very well but didn’t capitalize on the big points. Great matchup nonetheless. Congrats to, Iga👍🏾.

So many unforced errors by Iga, but still she won the game. Sloane has shown how good defender she is.

Congratulation IGA! Returning to the special way of playing tennis. Great game and Stephens played well and valued his victory. Keep it up!

Sloane may have lost but she been playing super well since Francisco was in the box. Hope she continues like this
Jerzy Feliks
Jerzy Feliks:
I think something people ignore is that she tries new stuff. She knows that if she has only one play mode people will find her out. This was actually her problem for a while, that she didn't have plan B if plan A didn't work. She is now in the process of developing her game and practicing new stuff so that she is a well rounded player. And there is no point of practicing it in your training and never testing it in a competitive game. We know she has to work on her serve because it has been her Achilles heel for a while but there is a wisdom in developing your game in order to be more complete rather than playing your only game A and winning minor tournaments. As the commentators said, her trainer is focusing on long term goals rather that winning some small tournaments.

Andre Agassi said a champion knows how to win on their worst day. And Iga knows how to do this now. I also appreciate her still wearing the Ukrainian flag pin on her hat. I hope she wins and drapes herself in the Polish and Ukrainian Flag I wonder if that would violate the Cincinnati organizers poor little sensibilities. Sloane has a great smile I wish her the best in the US open swing. I'll be there. Can't Waite.

Swiatek's serves have too much top spins and her strokes are powerful, she's one of the best right now, almost unstoppable.

2 great champions. Sloane played Iga well... I think it would have been more of a match if it was worth it. It's only the 2nd round so def not worth it but it was a great match

Excellent win. Their first time meeting too. This will give the confidence again for Iga to continue winning as she's beating another grand slams champion.
STRAWYB
STRAWYB:
Note that no player can win every title. Players sometimes have bad days. Not good to start bashing a player if their game goes down. When a player is injured they will take time to come back to form. Rome was not built in a day.

As we used to say in high school... "I played him tough...." Great effort from Slaone against a Premier Player.

Iga played good tho, what do you guys expect the score against Sloane would be? A 6-0 6-0? Sloane been stellar on her first round match , she was looking forward to this match against No 1 player, and Iga was reaching out to her best again, we will see how is her level on her next round match.

1GA was a bit tentative in this match. She could barely hold her serves. With mental focus and winning mind set, she was able to make the necessary adjustments after suffering three devastating losses in previous tournaments. The pressure of being number one is embedded in her mind not to disappoint her fans. Sloane is a tough cookie to handle but 1GA crept in for the finish. A good match for 1GA to fine tune her strokes. Next is Madison who just beat Ostapenko who can easily beat 1GA. GOOD LUCK 1GA NEXT ROUND. STAY FOCUSED!

Swiatek is a smart player. She keeps moving her opponent side to side nonstop. Every now and then she unleashes some stored power in her shot. She reminds me a lot of older time strategy players who used to hit constantly from side to side regardless of whether you have to run to the ball. They do it fast enough to swing so it goes away from opponent almost always. This usually wins them the point without too much energy expenditure. This is why Swiatek is such a winning player. Hope she is not a fruitcake like Osaka and Barty
Daniel Kowalczyk
Daniel Kowalczyk:
Skończyło się łatwe wygrywanie meczów przez Igę. Każda jej przeciwniczka walczy, bo liczy na to, że może Igę pokonać.. Iga jest na pierwszym miejscu w rankingu, ale sporo z niżej notowanych zawodniczek ma potencjał aby ją pokonywać.

Too bad, the video does not show how Sloane fights on the second set. Down 2:5, but managed to get 3 games is worth showing. Congrats to Iga though. Hope she wins this tournament.

Highlights showed a couple points where Iga stayed back when she has Sloane on run. Iga needs to take over the point at every opportunity.

Iga dominate as always, but gotta give huge credit for Sloane especially that set 2 thriller.
She's after all a GS champ and will come back stronger 💪🏻 🇺🇸
Mark Bielak
Mark Bielak:
Iga has made a lot of unforced errors as by her standards and I think it is due to the fact she didn't play as many regular matches since Wimbledon as she did in 1H22. She has also been involved with all these humanitarian events for Ukraine and alike, so she lost a bit of her focus and sharpness. Nevertheless one has to recognize that Sloane has been playing very well and had her chances. At the end, Iga has pulled through another tough encounter and hopefully will find form for the next match with Maddie Keys

What I enjoy about Iga's mental game is, she knows that she's not invincible. She knows she can be winning and winning and also know that she will lose and she accepts that.

What happened to the variety of Iga’s game? I’ve just watched her RG 2020 game and there were so many beautiful dropshots, her game was so clear and smart, not only powerful. What about serve? She used to serve so good

How does this jump from Swiatek up 5-2 in the 2nd set to Swiatek at match point at 6-5? Did nothing of note happen for 4+ games?
Mark Phifer-Houseman
Mark Phifer-Houseman:
Stephens has such talent but her tactics are such a problem. On big points she played into Swiatek’s strengths. She is behind the baseline, reacting to Iga’s aggression. You can’t beat her this way. Swiatek’s controlled aggression is too much for counterpunching technique. It seems like Stephens is not willing to attack and close points at the net, which the top women all do now. The era of simply hitting big from the back is over for the top 25 on WTA

I like Iga much, but unfortunately, he won't get far with such playing. She seems distracted on the court, sends too long balls, has a poor first serve (again, why?) and lacks combo play. Where are drop shots? Apart from that she is cute and has one of the best legs on the WTA tour.

I don't get this trend of a clinched fist after you win a point. Every point. Even the WTA can't help themselves now without putting pictures up with fists. What happened to just winning a point and moving onto the next one?

Iga looks very erratic in her game, that's why the bad performances in the last tournaments that she has played, today she beats Stephens but also with many mistakes on her part, if she continues to play in such an erratic way it is obvious that she is not going to win this tournament

Ikot Tagemtem:
What's wrong with Iga's play. She has lost her magic. What's her coach doing? Just watch her lose and lose on early rounds. Fire your coach Iga in doing so you will have changes in your play. I'm your biggest fan but watching you play now, I'm sorry you need new coach.
