This is also Iga Swiatekโ€™s third consecutive title at Roland Garros.

Iga Swiatek completely overwhelmed Jasmine Paolini in the French Open 2024 womenโ€™s singles final on Saturday, cruising to a 6-2, 6-1 victory to capture her third consecutive championship at Roland Garros.

The 23-year-old Polish star was simply too powerful for the 28-year-old Italian, who was appearing in her first Grand Slam final. Swiatek raced out to early leads in both sets and never let Paolini get a foothold in the match.

With the lopsided win, Swiatek became the first woman since Serena Williams to win three consecutive majors on the same surface. She is also the youngest player to accumulate four French Open titles.

Swiatek came into the final on a 20-match winning streak in Paris dating back to 2022. Her relentless groundstroke depth and accuracy prevented Paolini from being able to go on any sustained offensive.

While Paolini stayed competitive early, she could not sustain her level. Swiatekโ€™s consistency forced a rash of unforced errors from the Italian as the match progressed.

The match statistics laid bare Swiatekโ€™s dominance. She won 62% of total points, hit 21 winners to just 11 unforced errors, and landed an impressive 69% of her first serves in play.
