Iga Swiatek maintains her perfect finals record to win second French Open title

Iga Swiatek win French Open trophy 2022

Iga Swiatek won the French Open title as she beat Coco Gauff to extend her winning streak to an incredible 35 matches.

The Pole now has two Grand Slam titles, both at Roland Garros, as she continues to enjoy dominance over the WTA this year.

Swaitek was rarely troubled by 18 year old Gauff, who was playing her first major final, and eased to a 6-1, 6-3 win.

It was her ninth career final, with her winning every single one without dropping a set.

“First I want to congratulate you [Coco Gauff] because you are doing an amazing job," Iga Swiatek said on court when receiving her trophy.

"You are progressing all the time. You will find it and you will be there I am pretty sure of that.

“I want to thank my team, you guys, I mean, oh my god, without you I wouldn’t be here, I’m sure of that. I’m glad every piece has come together and we can do this.

"We deserve to be here. Thanks for your full support all the time no matter what.

“Also to my Dad, I wouldn’t be here without him so I have to thank him for everything. Everyone who is in my box, thank you all.

"Two years ago winning this title was something amazing that I wouldn’t have expected ever. This time I worked hard to get here.

“Thank you all the fans for coming, all the Polish flags I can see over there. It’s good to have you and lean on you in my toughest moments. It’s always a great atmosphere here and I always have extra motivation every time I come here.

“I also wanted to say something to Ukraine, to stay strong, because the war is still there. Since it started I hoping when I do the next [tournament] the situation will be better but I will still have hope.

“Thank you guys and see you next year.”

Iga Swiatek's run of 35 wins in a row equals the best by any woman this century.
