Iga Swiatek doesn't stop anymore. The world number one trembled in Paris at the beginning of the tournament against Naomi Osaka but from the Round of 16 she left only 11 games to her rivals, crumbs and faced the world number two in the semifinals and the new world number 7 in the final.

An absolute domination, Jasmine Paolini could do nothing in the final and Iga won her fifth career Slam - the fourth here in Paris - at just 23 years old. Impressive numbers and a clear domination in the rankings with many doubts about possible rivals within the tour

In the usual post-match press conference Iga made the following statements: "This victory means a lot, the tournament was surreal from the beginning with a second round where we all know what happened (1-4 in the third set and sensational comeback against Naomi Osaka), from there I managed to improve my game in every match and I am really very proud of myself, there were great expectations and great pressure but I am happy to have faced all this". In a recent interview, Iga Swiatek’s psychologist Daria Abramowicz reflected on Iga’s recent triumph in Paris.

"Everyone was giving Iga Swiatek the trophy after Rome already. Then again here when Aryna and Elena lost. Which is tough. You can stay in your zone, focused and disciplined, but it will come to you day after day. You will listen to it and see it," Daria Abramowicz said.

"I know that sometimes people are making fun of us in the player’s box because we’re not smiling but this is what our player expects us to do as well: focus on the work and then we’ll enjoy and have something to celebrate," Iga Swiatek's psychologist said.

The unstoppable Iga Swiatek takes home her fourth cup in the prestigious French Open, all won in the last five editions (the only defeat in 2021 in the quarters against Sakkari). The achievement, dominating for practically 90 percent of the competition, with only the chill of the second round with Naomi Osaka, puts the number one in history: in addition to winning Madrid, Rome, and Paris consecutively, the Pole equals the four titles won by Justine Henin, probably the last great queen of the event.
