Madrid Open: Belarusian Sabalenka Beat Swiatek To Clinch Women's Title

Belarusian second seed Aryna Sabalenka beat Iga Swiatek 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 to win the Madrid Open, avenging her defeat by the polish world number one in last month's Stuttgart Final.

Sabalenka produced a great performance to beat Swiatek for the first time on clay, proving that she will be a serious title contender when the French Open begins later this month.
