Polish star Iga Swiatek, 21, underscored her status as the French Open top seed after she blitzed US rival Coco Gauff in Saturday’s final at Roland Garros.
Swiatek surged to victory in two sets against the 18-year-old Gauff (6-1, 6-3) to register what was her 35th successive win – a winning streak which equals the longest run of victories on the WTA tour this century.
Swiatek, who also won the French Open in 2020, took advantage of a less-than-impressive start by a nervy Gauff and never looked close to surrending momentum throughout the match.
Incredibly, Swiatek has now won 54 of the past 56 sets she has played, while also extending her streak of victories in finals to nine.
