Coco Gauff Iga Swiatek result: World No. 1 claims second French Open title in dominant match against Gauff

Iga Swiatek continues its dominance in the tennis world.

For the second time in her young tennis career, Swiatek claimed the French Open title, defeating No. 23 Coco Gauff in straight sets (6-1, 6-3) to be named the 2022 French Open women’s singles champion.

The world No. 1 established early on Saturday that she was on her A-game. She won each of the first four games before Gauff took the first game. Swiatek won the next two games to easily win the first set 6-1.

Gauff took the first two games of the second set, but Swiatek bounces back, winning five straight games and finishing Gauff in the ninth game to claim her second French Open title at just 21 years old.

Along with her second Grand Slam victory, Swiatek extended her match winning streak to 35, matching Venus Williams for the longest winning streak since 2000.

Gauff will still have a chance to leave Roland Garros as a French Open champion, when she plays in the women’s doubles finals on Monday with Jessica Pegula against Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic.
