World number one Iga Swiatek capped a dominant season by beating Tunisian fifth seed Ons Jabeur at the US Open to win her second major title of 2022.

After a one-sided first set Jabeur settled midway through the second but it was not enough to stop Swiatek clinching a third major title.

Swiatek's previous two wins both came on the clay at the French Open.

Jabeur also lost in the Wimbledon final in July and her wait for one of the sport's four most prestigious titles continues.
