Iga Swiatek beats Coco Gauff to take home the French Open

Iga Swiatek hasn’t lost since February and certainly appears unbeatable right now she is now a two-time champion of the French Open.

Coco Gauff, who was as a player in the debut Grand Slam final at just 18 was never given any chance, as have all of the other opponents facing Swiatek in recent times.

The world’s top-ranked Swiatek defeated Gauff 6-1, 6-3, in the final match at Roland Garros on Saturday, including her trophy for 2020 there, and also extending her winning streak to 35 games.

Swiatek’s streak of unbeaten runs is the same as one recorded that was set by Venus Williams in 2000 as the longest of this century.

Swiatek has already won six of her last tournaments, and is currently 42-3 for the season.

She’s emerged as an imposing tennis player and has the 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams missing for almost an entire year, and three-time major champion Ash Barty announcing in March that she will retire at the age of 25 and surrender the number. 1 ranking.

This has made it possible for Swiatek to rise into the upper echelons of WTA and has proven she’s deserving of a place there. The last time she lost was in February against 2017 Roland Garros winner Jelena Ostapenko.

Swiatek is a player who can be played on all surfaces however her biggest wins to date have been with red clay.

On the day that was the warmest in the competition, temperatures reached at 82 degree Fahrenheit (28 Celsius), and even though the forecast for the day predicted storms, there were only few white clouds over the sky of blue over the court of Philippe Chartrier at the outset.

Gauff didn’t get off to the most positive of beginnings. There was a initial jitter that is to be expected from any player who is making the beginning of their career at this level.

The person on the opposite side of the net definitely was a major factor with how things turned out.

Swiatek broke serve out of the gate, with the help of Gauff, who hit an ace into the net, then double-faultedand eliciting a few sighs of “Awwwww” from a supportive crowd. Gauff threw one of his forehands into the net, then pushed an additional forehand to the side.

After Gauff’s forehand was a work-in-progress, and her, she was hit again, and fell behind 3-0 in just 15 minutes. In no time, the score was 4-0 to Swiatek’s advantage.

In all instances however, typically, the fans are at Roland Garros tend to offer their support to players who are struggling and to the player who is losing during a particular game. This was especially true for Gauff. Thus, there was a flood of cries from “Allez, Coco!” There were many cries that chanted her two-syllable debut name. One fan shouted “Coco, you can do it!”

After Gauff landed on the board, holding to 4-1, the cheers and roars were appropriate for the winning of the set, not only one game.

When it appeared that things were going her way Gauff, she slapped her leg or closed her eyes, shook her head, or turned at her parents from the stands.

She did not to compromise or renounce anything.

Gauff started with the third set break Swiatek for the first time, before taking a hold to make it to 2-0. Could this turn into an even more competitive match? Could Gauff be able to help push Swiatek to the third set?

No. Swiatek quickly adjusted herself and was able to regain her confidence in a break for 2 all when Gauff’s tendency to make mistakes was rediscovered.

Swiatek is not only winning, but he’s also winning effortlessly and has already accumulated 16 sets in an 6-0 score in 2022, and this is only the beginning of June.

Only Polish player to have won the Grand Slam singles trophy, Swiatek achieves this feat with the combination of a topspin-laden strong forehand exactly like a person she admires greatly thirteen-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal and will play Casper Ruud in the men’s final on Sunday. an all-court tournament, which is filled with variety, and a fondness of making actions ahead of time in an event. Like a chess player who she is.

She also has other strengths also, including the strength of her foot that permits her to play defense when it is needed.

Another factor that contributes to her presence and rapidly growing image and confidence is her calm on the court. She’s travelled on tour with a psychologist who was in her guests box during the weekend and is working on different aspects of her personal and professional lives.

This includes a focus on staying focused and setting priorities, for example, her determination that she is still a novice in this whole endeavor of trying to achieve Grand Slam titles that she determined it was not the best idea to go to the Champions League soccer final in Paris this past weekend. This is something Nadal did
