In one of the more bizarre championship matches in recent memory, teenage sensation Iga Swiatek demolished Karolina Pliskova in Rome, 6-0, 6-0. The Pole, who saved two match points in her third-round win over Barbora Krejcikova, won an incredible 51 out of 64 points to capture her first WTA 1000 level title.

After pulling double duty in quarterfinal and semifinal wins over Elina Svitolina and Coco Gauff on Saturday, Swiatek needed just 46 minutes to get the job done on Sunday.

Swiatek committed just five unforced errors compared to 23 for the Czech.

"I'm really really happy, I'm kind of overwhelmed," Swiatek said. "At the beginning of this tournament I wouldn't even dream of winning."

Swiatek showed one of the marks of all great players in her ability to play herself into the tournament, finding her best level in the most pivotal moments.

With her win, the 19-year-old became just the fourth teenager to win a WTA 1000 level event.
