Iga Swiatek meets and wins his second Roland Garros

The Polish Iga Swiatek, number 1 in the world, fulfilled the forecasts that gave her as a great favorite for the Roland Garros title, and this Saturday she defeated the young American Coco Gauff (18 years old) 6-1 and 6-3 in the final to raise his second glass Suzanne Lenglen.

With this victory, achieved in just 1 hour and 8 minutes, Swiatek has won 35 consecutive matches, equaling the best streak in the 21st century that the American Venus Williams had since 2000, and has won the last six tournaments she has played.

Swiatek (21 years old), who won Roland Garros for the first time in 2020, in the edition postponed to the European autumn due to the pandemic, succeeds the Czech Barbora Krejcikova, eliminated in this edition in the first round by the French Diane Parry.

After the retirement of the Australian Ashley Barty in March, Swiatek rose to the top of the world women’s tennis and has been unstoppable since she is number 1 in the WTA ranking, as she demonstrated again in this tournament, in which she won all her matches in two sets, except for the quarterfinal against the Chinese Qinwen Zheng.

The match hardly had any history. With two breaks to go against a nervous Gauff, who was playing her first Grand Slam final, Swiatek led 4-0 and closed out the set in just 35 minutes.

The dynamic seemed to change at the start of the second set, when Gauff broke her rival’s serve in the first game, but it took only three more games for Swiatek to recover the break and another two more to gain enough of an advantage to lift the cup.

Gauff paid for his inexperience in matches of this kind and his serve bled too much for him to challenge Swiatek, winning just 25 points out of 57 on serve.
