PARIS: World No. 1 Iga Swiatek won her second French Open title on Saturday after registering a dominating straight-sets victory over No.18 seed Coco Gauff in the women's singles final of Roland Garros 2022 at the Philippe Chatrier court in Paris.


Swiatek's dominant display lasted one hour and eight minutes as she dismantled Gauff 6-1, 6-3.


The opening of the set saw Swiatek totally dominating the 18-year-old American. The opening set in just over 30 minutes.

A sloppy game from Swiatek helped Gauff secure a 2-0 lead at the start of the second set, but Swiatek won the next five in a row.


The American teenager served to stay in the match, the No. 18 seed dug out of 15-30 with a forehand winner and an ace, and though she was again two points from defeat when Swiatek struck a clean backhand return, Gauff escaped.


Gauff gritted out a tough hold for 5-3, forcing Swiatek to serve for the championship, but the World No.1 was up to the task. On the first championship point, Gauff sent a service return long, and the Polish star lifted her second French Open title with a stunning and dominating win over Gauff by 6-1, 6-3.
