Iga Swiatek cemented her place at the top of women’s tennis with a commanding victory over Coco Gauff in the final of the French Open. The number one seed swept to a second Roland Garros title thanks to a 6-1 6-3 demolition of 18-year-old Gauff.

With superstar Poland striker Robert Lewandowski watching on Court Philippe Chatrier, Swiatek’s sharp-shooting and ruthless finishing was too much for the American and capped an astonishing winning run.

Elevated to world number one following Ashleigh Barty’s shock retirement in March, the 21-year-old Pole has provided an unstoppable force ever since. Her 35-match winning streak takes her level with Venus Williams for the most consecutive victories this century. She has also won six straight titles, the first woman to do so since Justine Henin in 2008.

It was a tough afternoon for Gauff, in her first grand slam final, but she did not help herself despite saying beforehand that there was no pressure on her. Follow all the reaction live below as Swiatek beats Gauff to win the French Open:

Here’s what Iga Swiatek had to say following her French Open victory:

“First I want to congratulate you [Coco Gauff] because you are doing an amazing job. You are progressing all the time. You will find it and you will be there I am pretty sure of that.

“I want to thank my team, you guys, I mean, oh my god, without you I wouldn’t be here, I’m sure of that. I’m glad every piece has come together and we can do this. We deserve to be here. Thanks for your full support all the time no matter what.

“Also to my Dad, I wouldn’t be here without him so I have to thank him for everything. Everyone who is in my box, thank you all. Two years ago winning this title was something amazing that I wouldn’t have expected ever. This time I worked hard to get here.

“Thank you all the fans for coming, all the Polish flags I can see over there. It’s good to have you and lean on you in my toughest moments. It’s always a great atmosphere here and I always have extra motivation every time I come here.

“I also wanted to say something to Ukraine, to stay strong, because the war is still there. Since it started I hoping when I do the next [tournament] the situation will be better but I will still have hope.

“Thank you guys and see you next year.”
