The 21-year-old Poland won 6-2 7-6 (7-5) in one hour and 52 minutes at Flushing Meadows, New York to secure the season's final major trophy. She is already a two-time French Open champion.

Jabeur, 28, also lost in the Wimbledon final in July. The Tunisian was bidding to become the first woman from Africa to win a Grand Slam



title.

Swiatek had won her nine previous finals without dropping a set. She will remain the world number one, with Jabeur moving up to a joint career-high WTA ranking of second.

"It's something that I wasn't expecting, for sure. It's also like a confirmation for me that the sky's the limit," said Swiatek, who is 55-7 in tour-level matches with seven trophies in 2022.

Swiatek thus became the first woman since Serena Williams in 2014 to win seven titles in a season.

"I'm proud. Also surprised little bit," she added.
