World No.1 Iga Swiatek cruised past Croatian qualifier Jana Fett 6-0, 6-3 at Wimbledon on Tuesday to extend her winning run to 36 matches. The top seed was in complete control in the opening set, breaking in the first game and taking the set with ease.

Despite a stiff breeze swirling through the main show court, Poland’s Swiatek powered through the opening set without losing a game — registering a 6-0 set for the 17th time this year.

But problems with her delivery started early in the second set as the 25-year-old Fett, ranked 252nd in the world, built up a 3-1 lead. Swiatek, however, quickly regained her focus to win the next five games.

A powerful first serve helped Swiatek seal victory on her first match point and she will meet British wildcard Sonay Kartal or Dutch lucky loser Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove for a place in the third round.
