Swiatek is clear favourite in Paris final against Paolini
Iga Swiatek has the chance to win her fourth French Open title in the final on Saturday.
Jasmine Paolini won impressively in the semifinals against Mirra Andrejewa.

Iga Swiatek stormed into the final of the French Open in Paris: The 23-year-old Pole defeated third-seeded Coco Gauff (USA) 6:2 and 6:4 in the semifinals. “It was intense, very close in the second set. I’m very happy that I stuck to my tactics, didn’t think too much and finished it,” said Swiatek. With her 20th consecutive victory in a French Open match, the defending champion equaled Steffi Graf’s record (1987 to 1989). She is still 9 wins away from the record held by American Chris Evert.

Gauff, who made 39 unforced errors, can console herself with the fact that she will be number two in the WTA rankings for the first time on Monday. Swiatek, on the other hand, will be aiming for her fourth title at Roland Garros on Saturday – as the clear favorite against Jasmine Paolini: The 12th seeded Italian defeated Mirra Andrejewa (Rus) 6-3, 6-1 in the duel of the tournament’s surprises.
