NEW YORK - Iga Swiatek of Poland swept past Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 to advance to the women's singles final at the US Open here on Thursday.

World No 1 Swiatek recovered from a slow start before taking control and winning the match. She will play Tunisia's Ons Jabeur in the final.

Fifth seed Jabeur breezed past France's Caroline Garcia 6-1, 6-3 in just 66 minutes.

"Mentally I was so ready," Jabeur said. "I gave it all today. I don't disbelieve in myself and I know that I'm going to come back and win a Grand Slam, for sure. This is tennis, and it's part of it. I have to learn from it, definitely. But I'm very, very positive about it. Iga never loses finals, so it's going to be very tough."

This will be the first time either Swiatek or Jabeur has made it to the US Open final.
