However, tournament organisers also planned another reward for her, hiding a piece of tiramisu – one of her favourite treats – inside the trophy.

“I really appreciate it. Especially since I didn’t have anything to eat,” she said after she noticed the treat.

Did we remember to put cookies in there for you, @iga_swiatek?

The two weeks of competition could scarcely have been sweeter for the Pole, who balanced her usual on-court seriousness with off-court fun.

"I'm really glad that it's not in cash." 😂🤑

She took a photo with her idol Serena Williams, met Olympic gold medallist Lindsey Vonn and swooned at the sight of singer Seal.

“Actually after I met Seal, I was like, even if I’m going to lose right now I already won this tournament because I got a photo with him,” said Świątek.
