Momentum swing, or will Sweetek react the same way it broke last time? (Or, more relevantly, would Pegula respond the same way with an array of errors?)

Arriving late at Arthur Ashe Stadium will miss the match at this rate. Sure, then there’s the men’s match, but it should have been the big attraction, right?
After dropping two more points, Pegula shows signs of life with a good rally and is well positioned on the next, but a pure approach goes awry, and she hits long at the next point. One set down, one break down.
Sweetek easily takes the first two points. Pegula has a nice, solid rally at the end and pushes Sweetek to run around before hitting just wide.
Then Swietec shows some power, breaking his way to the double set point. And she smashes a forehand winner to top it all.
Very easy. Very easy. 1 in the world, and he barely needed to tap into his repertoire of impressive shots to win.
*Swietek 5-3 Pegula (* – denotes the next server)
Swietek barely gets the edge, Pegula has to scramble to get it, and Swietek easily pulls it away. Then it’s another bad error on Pegula’s part, and she’s down 0-30. Then double fault. 0-40.
“Switek is controlling the ball better,” we hear on ESPN commentary. When did he need to hit it?
Pegula hits back again for a long time and falls in love. It’s 12 points out of Sweetek’s last 13, and he hardly needs to do anything.
Sweetek 4-3 Pegula* (* – denotes the next server)
Pegula may be very sorry that the break opportunity was missed, as Sweetek is again looking like the world No. 1 player, or at least a few places above Pegula. But American comes up with a speed-breaking lob to do it 30-15. An unexpected error makes it 40-15. Lets play another Swiatek.
3-2 and 30-0, Pegula has come unstuck. He will need a good service game to settle here.
*Switek 3-3 Pegula (* – denotes the next server)

Sweetek 2-3 Pegula* (* – denotes the next server)
Do they have a rodeo in Poland? As she runs forward, Swietake is so disengaged that she ends up swinging wildly behind her head, as if trying to swing a lasso, and hits the well. Pegula hits a good winner to increase the pressure, but she misses on the next point and is handcuffed from the second serve to 30-30.
Then this is another strange error, at the start of the rally, from Swietec. Another break point for Pegula. Sweetek comes out aggressively. Pegula hits back and reaches for the net, only to see a Swietek shot past him…and long.
First break for Pegula.
*Swietek 2-2 Pegula (* – denotes the next server)

*Swietek 1-1 Pegula (* – denotes the next server)
Can Pegula keep him with him until the crowd, which will surely be on his side, fills up? Why do people work so late in New York anyway? Or do they refuse to take the train?
In any case, Swietec cannot sustain a rally. That’s five unforced errors in two games, and some “forced” errors were pretty bad shots too.
Sweetek 1-0 Pegula* (* – denotes the next server)
Break point for Pegula as Sweetek struggles with his serve and double fault. The world No. 1 misses again, but takes her courage to serve the second and flirts along lines across the court to get the deuce.
Swietec, the winner of the first match, gives her a game point, but she misses the next. Pegula’s wayward return again gives Sweetek a chance to get through the game at the mostly silent Arthur Ashe Stadium (New York traffic is brutal), but Sweetek misses on his backhand. The US Open stats feed is generically referring to these errors as “forced”. They are not.
On our third deuce, Pegula hits well and tries to wrap it up with a drop shot, but Sweetek is too quick, capitalizing on ease.
At play point, Pegula hits aggressively. very aggressively. Too aggressively – it’s long, and Sweetek can exhale.

In 2019, Pegula defeated a then-teenage Swietec in three sets in Washington, not far from my humble suburban home.
Swietec won in straight sets in Miami and did so again in the Roland Garros quarterfinals.
Pegula is actually far more adept at doubles than singles, but this is her fourth Grand Slam quarterfinal in two years and her third this year.
Swietec was in the lead earlier this year, heading to Clay to win on hard courts in Doha, Indian Wells and Miami, then Stuttgart, Rome and Roland Garros. She hasn’t been as successful since then and now loses to the dangerous Caroline Garcia In his native Poland. In his previous tournament, he was 16 to . lost in the madison keys,

Under immense Arthur Ashe Stadium pressure and with a huge opportunity for anyone who was courageous enough to take it, Aryna Sabalenka’s devastating ball-strike was in full flow as she returned to the US Open semifinals for the second year in a row who had defeated him. Former No. 1 Karolina Pliskova 6-1, 7-6(4) to reach the third Grand Slam semi-final of her career.
In a tournament with only one Grand Slam champion in the quarter-final stage, Inga Swietec, some contenders were desperate to finally secure their first Grand Slam title. 22nd seed Pliskova reached her first Grand Slam final at the US Open in 2016, eventually reaching world No. Although she has been a frequent presence in the final stages of Grand Slam tournaments, she is still making her first discovery. title.
As Ash Barty cemented her dominance last year, Sabalenka was at No. 2 in the rankings for most of the season, enjoying the best season of her career. After winning the WTA Tour title but falling miserably at the Grand Slams, she made it to the semi-finals back to back at Wimbledon and the US Open, but never went further.
Now attempting to take the next step in her career, it was fifth seed Sabalenka who was quick and determined to rise to the occasion. He served well, crushed the ball and filled his every stroke with energy and vitality. As she progressed, Pliskova struggled terribly. His feet were grounded on the spot, a double fault in his service game. Pliskova finished a nightmare in the first set with a winner and 15 unforced errors, her only winner being an ace.
Pliskova improved significantly in the second set. She started the set with a good serve, standing in front of Sabalenka in the toughest moments of her serve. But Sabalenka was impossible in the biggest moments. He played an incredible tie-break, completely demolishing the ball, but also adding to his muscular, amazing power with delicate touches; Nice drop volley, sweet lobs and a lovely drop shot in the tie-break.
Throughout this year, double faults have plagued Sabalenka’s game, but at seemingly every crucial moment, Sabalenka easily scored a second serve over 100mph. After making 23 double faults in a match earlier this summer, Ash made three strikes. She finished with a final moment of glory, a scene-stealing forehand return winner on the first serve to advance.
