Pretty much since the Australian Open, the WTA Tour has been a one-woman show.

And that one woman is now number one in the world. But after winning 17 straight matches, it looks like the wear and tear may be catching up with her.

After all her hard work, Iga Świątek has earned a cheat day.

However, after winning 17 matches and three WTA 1000 titles in a row, the new world number one withdrew from Charleston this week citing an arm injury.

This surprised fans who had watched her dominate the tour for the last two months. But Tennis Twitter thinks they know where the injury came from…

Is there anyone on the WTA tour who is having more fun than Ons Jabeur?
