WTA No.1 Iga Swiatek ends her clay court season on a high. After winning two Masters tournaments in straight succession, she entered the French Open with an exuberant form, one that was better than the rest of the players. 

Except for the second-round scare against Naomi Osaka, the Pole had not dropped a set after that. Cruising past her opponents, she made it to the finals against Jasmine Paolini. Many expected a close match between the two, but in the end, Swiatek was just untouchable and won the match in straight sets. 

Swiatek beat Paolini 6-2, 6-1 to win her fourth title in Roland Garros and also to complete the triple crown achievement of winning the two Masters titles and the Grand Slam in straight succession. Eurosport expert Mats Wilander also had loads of praise for the Pole, hailing as unbeatable here

It’s tough to play like Iga because you have to be so strong and have that racket head speed and all the topspin on the forehand. That’s why she’s unbeatable here.
Mats Wilander said via Eurosport

Except for Elena Rybakina, no other player has even come close to beating Swiatek on clay. While she is on a losing record against the Kazakh, Swiatek has incredible stats against the rest of the women on tour.

The Italian had started the finals with an early break against the Pole but soon fell prey to the dominance of Swiatek, who won the next 11 out of the 12 games to clinch yet another title in Roland Garros. She was extremely disciplined the whole of the clay court season and was proud of her run in Paris. 

It doesn’t get more challenging than this. To stay disciplined for so many weeks, to focus on the right things, be here and now. But at the same time to enjoy life, to be happy, content. I’m so proud and grateful for my team, family, all the support - you have no idea. But yeah…I want to say it out loud. This.was.something.else.
Iga Swiatek said post her 2024 French Open win

Swiatek will return to Roland Garros next month for the Olympics, and her dominance here would surely be a huge plus point for her country, which can expect some medals from her. She plans on playing both singles and mixed doubles category, and targets not one but two medals for her country.
