Iga Swiatek stands one Saturday win away from completing the Madrid-Rome clay trophy double after dismissing Coco Gauff 6-4, 6-3 to advance into the final of the Rome Masters.

The world No. 1 Pole could be the first to achieve the feat since Serena Williams in 2013.

Swiatek took an hour and three quarters to beat US Open winner Gauff for the 11th time in 12 meetings, with her lone loss in the series coming last summer in Cincinnati on hardcourt.

The world No. 1 produced an efficient win to advance against either second seed Aryna Sabalenka or American Danielle Collins.

Swiatek has beaten eight Americans so far this season without a loss.

The four-time Grand Slam champion said she will not worry about setting another record but will concentrate as usual on her game after producing 26 winners and four breaks of the Gauff serve.

“I’m not thinking about statistics or history, I’m just playing day by day.

It’s easier that way, it lets you play more freely.

“I’ll just try to play as good as possible in the final, no matter who it is. I won’t be thinking of any records, there is still work to do.”
