Swiatek clinches the title as ruler of the French Open.

This time around, tennis superstar Iga Swiatek has achieved another remarkable feat - winning the French Open for the fourth time and the third time consecutively. The Polish playmaker was unstoppable against the underdog Jasmine Paolini, making her the queen of Roland Garros' clay courts.

Just 23 years old, Swiatek created a new page in tennis history with her fourth French Open title. Winning the final on Saturday, she bested the Italian outsider Paolini in an overwhelming 6:2, 6:1 manner within just 68 minutes. As she secured her first match point, there was little to no doubt Swiatek would claim her crown.

She has now matched legendary tennis greats Justine Henin and Monica Seles, who also won three consecutive French Open titles. Swiatek also surpassed the legendary German tennis player Steffi Graf with her 21st consecutive win in French Open matches. That win makes her the new record holder for consecutive French Open victories at 21 and adds another Grand Slam title to her impressive roster.

Up next for Paolini is another opportunity to shine. Together with Sara Errani, she'll play against Coco Gauff and Katerina Siniakova in the doubles final on Sunday. Moreover, Paolini can find some solace by knowing she'll enter the top ten world rankings for the first time in her career, beginning on Monday.

The men's competition's final between German Olympic gold medallist Alexander Zverev and the young Spanish talent Carlos Alcaraz is scheduled for Sunday at 2:30 pm on the Court Philippe Chatrier.
