    Iga Świątek Advances to French Open Final

    Iga Świątek secured her place in the French Open final with a decisive 6-2, 6-4 victory over American Coco Gauff. This win marks Świątek’s fourth career appearance in the Roland Garros final and further solidifies her status as the world’s top-ranked player. 

    Świątek began Thursday’s semifinal strongly, breaking Gauff’s serve in the opening game and maintaining her own serve to establish an early lead. Gauff struggled with unforced errors, committing 18 in the first set compared to Świątek’s five, allowing the Polish player to take the set 6-2 with composed and mature play.

    In the second set, Gauff showed resilience, breaking Świątek’s serve to gain a 2-1 lead. However, this only seemed to motivate Świątek, who won three consecutive games to regain control. The highlight of the match was an intense, ten-minute ninth game featuring five deuces, which Gauff eventually won, but Świątek swiftly closed out the match thereafter.

    Świątek now looks forward to the final, where she will face Italy’s Jasmine Paolini. As she aims to defend her title, Świątek is poised to secure yet another Grand Slam victory, reinforcing her dominance on the clay courts of Roland Garros.
