Swiatek primed to claim second French Open title

Swiatek primed to claim second French Open title

Agency :
The women's tournament at the French Open has often sprung surprise winners but it is hard to see anyone other than Iga Swiatek lifting the Suzanne Lenglen Cup on the Parisian clay this year.
The 20-year-old Polish player has it all - and in recent months she has simply been unbeatable.
Having triumphed at Roland Garros in 2020, she already has the experience of conquering all before her on red dirt.
When Swiatek unexpectedly took over the world number one ranking following Ash Barty's sudden retirement in March, it seemed to spark something inside the Pole as she will arrive at Roland Garros riding on an incredible 28-match winning streak.
It is the longest winning run since Serena Williams bagged 34 consecutive victories in 2013. It is also a far cry from Martina Navratilova's all-time record of 74 from 1984 but such is Swiatek's domination on the slowest surface that it will be a major shock if she does not add another seven wins to that number in Paris.
Swiatek has also won 40 of the last 41 sets she has played and is undefeated since losing to former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in Dubai in February.
The 20-year-old has won her last five events, a run that included titles in Indian Wells, Miami and Rome.
