This is the third Grand Slam title for Alcaraz, following his victories at Wimbledon last year and the US Open in 2022. He has also surpassed Novak Djokovic in the ATP Rankings to become World No.2. After his win, he has been congratulated by the entire tennis world, including Swiatek. The Polish superstar took to X to express her emotions.

With a four-hour and 19-minute victory in Paris, 21-year-old Alcaraz made history by becoming the first player since Rod Laver in 1962 to win both the semi-final and final of the clay-court major in five sets. In the final, the Wimbledon champion demonstrated resilience similar to his semi-final match against Jannik Sinner, overcoming a two-sets-to-one deficit to secure a hard-fought win against Alexander Zverev.

Alcaraz now boasts a 52-10 record in Grand Slam matches and is the seventh Spaniard to win the Coupe des Mousquetaires, joining the ranks of his coach, Juan Carlos Ferrero, who claimed the title in 2003.

Iga Swiatek demolished Jasmine Paolini to win fourth Roland Garros title

Iga Swiatek achieved the impressive milestone of securing her third consecutive French Open women’s title with a dominant win over Italian 12th seed Jasmine Paolini. The top seed showcased her continued excellence on the Roland Garros clay with a decisive 6-2, 6-1 victory against the 12th seed.

Despite an early break that saw Swiatek trailing, the 23-year-old quickly recovered, winning 11 of the next 12 games to claim the championship. The win marked the 23-year-old Swiatek’s fourth title at Roland Garros and her fifth Grand Slam victory overall, following her win at the 2022 US Open.

Swiatek joins the ranks of Monica Seles and Justine Henin as the only players to achieve a ‘three-peat’ in women’s singles since the Open era began in 1968. She is also the youngest player in the Open era to have won four titles at Roland Garros.

Following her victory, Swiatek celebrated by sinking to her knees and dancing around the court. The Pole’s win extended her match-winning streak at the French Open to 21, the fourth longest in women’s singles during the Open era.
