Iga Swiatek defeated Elina Svitolina 6-2 7-5 in the quarter-finals of the Italian Open on Saturday.
The 19-year-old Polish player, the current French Open champion, secured a straight-sets victory over her more experienced rival in just over an hour and a half, as she showed the best form of her tournament so far.
Swiatek will be back in action later today in the semi-final, when she takes on fellow teenager, 17-year-old United States player Coco Gauff.
