Iga Swiatek clinches third straight French Open victory, defeats Jasmine Paolini in women’s singles final.

Iga Swiatek continues her dominance at the French Open by clinching her third consecutive championship and fourth in five years. The Polish player defeated Jasmine Paolini in a commanding fashion with a score of 6-2, 6-1 in the final match on Saturday. Despite initially trailing 2-1, Swiatek rallied back to win the next 10 games, securing the opening set and maintaining a strong lead of 5-0 in the second set.

With this victory, Swiatek extended her winning streak at Roland Garros to an impressive 21 matches, further solidifying her career record at the tournament to 35-2. The 23-year-old athlete from Poland joins the ranks of tennis greats such as Justine Henin as the first woman to claim three consecutive titles in Paris since 2007.

Not only has Swiatek triumphed at the French Open, but she also boasts victories at the 2020 French Open and the 2022 U.S. Open, making her undefeated in major finals with a record of 5-0.

In contrast, Paolini, the 12th seed from Italy, made her debut in a Grand Slam final at the French Open. The 28-year-old player had never advanced past the second round in major tournaments until reaching the fourth round at the Australian Open earlier this year. Paolini will also compete in the French Open women’s doubles final alongside Sara Errani, facing off against reigning U.S. Open singles champion Coco Gauff and Katerina Siniakova on Sunday.

This exciting matchup showcases the talent and determination of both Swiatek and Paolini, highlighting the fierce competition and remarkable achievements within the world of professional tennis.
