World No. 1 Iga Swiatek has claimed her third major title, taking down No. 5 seed Ons Jabeur 6-2, 7-6(5) to win her maiden US Open Women's Singles crown.

"It's hard to describe it in one sentence. But I'm just super proud of myself because it wasn't easy match, even though at the beginning I was dominating, I knew it's going to be tight and I knew that Ons is going to use any mistake that I'm going to make. I didn't want to back out," Swiatek said post-match.

"In the second set, it got really physical action and I'm happy that I got my level of energy up little bit more so I could finish and be really precise in those moments where I needed that. We played on a really good level today."

After winning Roland Garros earlier this year, the 21-year-old became the first woman to win two major singles titles in the same year since Angelique Kerber claimed victory at both the Australian Open and the US Open in 2016.

After reaching the final, Jabeur will rise back to a career-high No. 2 in the WTA singles rankings.

"I have nothing to regret because I did everything possible. I wish I served little bit better today. It would have helped me a lot. Iga, how she plays in finals ... It's very enough to beat her. I will keep positive and work on the things that was missing today," Jabeur said post-match.

Swiatek retains her spot in the No. 1 rank, amassing 10,365 ranking points - more than double that of Jabeur (5,090) in the second rank.

"It's something that I wasn't expecting for sure. It's also like a confirmation for me that sky is the limit. I'm proud, also surprised little bit, just happy that I was able to do that," Swiatek said.
