Polish tennis ace Iga Swiatek continued her dominance at the French Open as she stormed into the fourth final in just her sixth appearance at the Grand Slam tournament. The 23-year-old beat reigning US Open champion Coco Gauff in straight sets in the semifinal to book a spot in the final. Swiatek then celebrated it with an impromptu dance while walking down the stairs.

She followed Spanish tennis ace Carlos Alcaraz in taking up the ‘dance challenge’ at the 2024 Roland Garros. As Swiatek was walking out of the tennis court, she heard her favorite pop star, Taylor Swift’s song playing and thus, could not hold herself back from grooving to the song.

Swiatek paused for a brief while, waved her hands in the air, and shrugged her shoulders for a few seconds before walking into the locker room. The 23-year-old Polish ace also had a big smile on her face as she passed by the camera recording her.

Iga Swiatek on the verge of scripting history at 2024 Roland Garros

After defeating Coco Gauff in the semifinal, Iga Swiatek reached her third consecutive final at the Roland Garros. A double-defending champion at this year’s tournament, Swiatek now has an opportunity to script history when she will take on Jasmine Paolini in the final.

If Swiatek manages to win the title once again in Paris, she will become only the third woman in the open era to win three consecutive French Open titles. Only Justine Henin and Monica Seles have done this and there are high chances that Swiatek might pull it off on Saturday.

The 23-year-old knows her strengths really well and will be hoping to capitalize on them in the final. After her win over Coco Gauff, Swiatek revealed how she uses the slowness of the surface to her advantage. The World No. 1 also talked about her mindset throughout the match.

The surface makes my game better. My grip allows me to spin more. I can play more defense points because it's a bit slower, but on the other hand, I have also more time to attack sometimes. So I feel like I'm just using it well...I think I was pretty intense and putting pressure on Coco. Even though I got broken [at] the beginning of the second set, I knew that I can come back quickly, and I got my level of intensity a little bit higher to do that.

Notably, this was Swiatek’s 11th win over Gauff in 12 matches. The Polish ace beat her American counterpart in straight sets of 6-2, 6-4 to assert her dominance. Now, Swiatek has her eyes set on the elusive title which she has won three times so far in her career.

In case you missed!
