French Open Final: Swiatek Takes First Set From Gauff

After winning her first French Open out of season in October as an unseeded teenager, Iga Swiatek proved that was no fluke by winning the title again in the spring as an overwhelming favorite.

Swiatek, the No. 1 seed from Poland, cemented her status as the game’s dominant player by defeating Coco Gauff of the United States, 6-1, 6-3, in Saturday’s women’s final.

Swiatek has been an irresistible force on any surface for the last four months, but red clay is her favorite playground. She took command of Saturday’s women’s final from the start to win her 35th straight match and sixth straight tournament.
