World number 1 Iga Swiatek and World number 4 Coco Gauff clashed for the fifth time in the last two years. The story seems to be the same as Gauff. Every time she faces Swiatek, the 18-year-old has seemed pretty helpless. In another one-sided contest at the WTA Finals, Swiatek absolutely thrashed Gauff in straight sets.

While Gauff showed some resistance in the first set that Swiatek took 6-3, she was absolutely clueless in the second set. World number one handed her another bagel and won the match easily.
