Iga Swiatek bookended a dominant French Open run by rolling to her second title in three years over Coco Gauff.

The world no.1 swatted aside the American teenager 6-2,6-3 at the Roland Garros for her 35th consecutive win.

The win ties her with Venus Williams for the longest string of victories in women’s tennis.

The French Open crown is also Swiatek’s sixth crown in a row this season after her wins in Doha, Indian WellsMiamiItalian Open, and Stuttgart.

Gauff playing her first grand slam final showed nerves from the very beginning.

Swiatek using all her big stage experience forced the American into extending her service games, breaking her twice to race to a 4-0 lead in the first set.

Gauff eventually got on the board but had to save break points once again in doing so but eventually went a set down.

There were signs of change when the 19-year-old broke Swiatek’s serve to start the second set before holding to take a 2-0 lead to applause from the crowd.

The former French Open champion slammed the door on the comeback though, reeling off 4 consecutive games to put the pressure back on Gauff.

Serving to stay in the match she managed to hold for 3-5 only for Swiatek to seal the title on the first Championship point as Gauff’s return went long.
