The Polish tennis player, who earlier this month took over as the new number one in women’s tennis, has breezed past Aryna Sabalenka in the final, winning 6-2 6-2.

The World No.4 couldn't resist Świątek's powerful baseline hitting, allowing the Pole to notch up her 23rd match-victory on the bounce.

In the semifinals, Świątek saw her run of winning sets put to a stop by Liudmila Samsonova, but managed to sweep into the final after a three-hour clash.

Defeating Sabalenka in the final, the Pole has snatched her fourth championship title in a row and collected the main Stuttgart Open prize, a Porsche car.

Earlier this year, Świątek claimed triumph at Doha, Indian Wells, and Miami tournaments.

The Stuttgart Open is this year’s third clay-court tournament ahead of the French Open, one of the four Grand Slam tournaments on the WTA tour, scheduled for May 22.
