Iga Swiatek continued her red-hot form on the WTA Tour hard courts as

she thrashed Naomi Osaka 6-4, 6-0 in the Miami Open final on Saturday.

It was Swiatek's 17th straight win and her third consecutive title. On Monday, 

the Polish player will officially ascend to the World No.1 for the first time in her career.

She moves to that position following her commanding 1-hour and 17-minute victory.

Swiatek also joins an exclusive club by becoming only the fourth woman to win the Sunshine Double

titles at WTA 1000 Indian Wells and Miami in the same season.
