4:26 p.m. : Totally agree with you! It is even a scandal that at least the women’s final is not played best of 5 sets. Some of the biggest matches for men are very often in 5 sets, with the loss of the first 2 by one of the players like in the final in Melbourne this year.
4:24 p.m. : 6-1 6-3 against Gauff in the final. 2nd Roland for Iga Swiatek. She had a crazy pressure on her shoulders in this fortnight. Basically, anything other than a title would have been seen as a form of failure. But she assumed until the end. Queen of RG, patroness of the circuit.
4:21 p.m. : Bravo Iga, great demonstration, and what a series
4:21 p.m. : 35-0 🏆#RolandGarros
4:21 p.m. : 35. RUTHLESS! @iga_swiatek left Coco Gauff no chance to win her 2nd Grand Slam title and above all, her 35th consecutive match, thus equaling the longest series since the beginning of the 2000s held by Venus Williams. #Roland Garros
4:21 p.m. : Iga Swiatek outclasses Coco Gauff (6-1, 6-3) and wins her second Grand Slam title, the second at Roland-Garros. Ultra favorite, the Polish flew over the fortnight, tennis, mentally and physically. World No. 1, 35 victories in a row… Boss at 21 years old.
4:20 p.m. : It’s already over ! Iga Swiatek wandered in the final of Roland-Garros, sweeping Coco Gauff in two sets and barely 1h10 of play (6-1, 6-3).
4:19 p.m. : If she wins, Iga Swiatek will become the youngest player to hold several Grand Slam titles since a certain Maria Sharapova (19 when she won her second Grand Slam title at the US Open 2006). And join the club of nine sacred players more than once in Paris since the start of the Open era.
4:12 p.m. : This is a demonstration that Iga Swiatek performs in this final. A tennis lesson that leaves poor Coco Gauff terribly helpless. , it smells like the stable.
4:09 p.m. : I imagine it has already been debated and difficult to get out of history, but 3 winning sets with fewer games might be more interesting for women and men
4:08 p.m. : Iga’s victory should not be long either lol
4:15 p.m. : The final may end before the storm, but it’s Coco Gauff who takes the thunder. She was leading 2-0, she finds herself chasing after the score, 4-2! Iga Swiatek’s awakening was spectacular.
4:05 p.m. : @golan ragos Don’t fall too much into “it was better before” anyway, I remember a super final in 2018 or 2017, with the victories of Simona Halep and Jelena Ostapenko. In my opinion, it is above all the format in two winning sets that limits the legendary finals for women.
4:04 p.m. : It must be due to my age, but the finals with Steffi Graff and Arantxa Sanchez were, it seems to me, of another level than those of the 21st century.
4:03 p.m. : It will soon rain on Roland-Garros, if I believe the Keraunos lightning strike map.
4:02 p.m. : Coco’s revolt will have fizzled out. Iga Swiantek picks up two games everywhere in this second set, and finds her metronomic tennis which puts the American to death.
3:55 p.m. : More “an” than “we” in real life (but the difference is subtle ^^). And the accent on the S is pronounced “sh”. In real life we should say “Shwiantek” 🙂
3:55 p.m. : And meanwhile, @Mast gives us a Polish lesson in the comments. A big “Dziękuję Ci” to him 😉
4:16 p.m. : Roller coaster in this final between a Polish and an American. Coco Gauff took control of the second round with a solid break. 2-0 for the American, who restarts the match after a nightmarish first set.
3:49 p.m. : Swiatek is the quintessence of tennis. We are silent and we admire. #RG22
3:47 p.m. : That was a fun set of Tennis said absolutely nobody…#FrenchOpen2022
3:46 p.m. : The thing with Swiatek is that it kills all suspense in the final. We are bored…
4:16 p.m. : 32 minutes of play, and already the first round in the bag of Iga Swiatek (6-1). Rest assured, Coco Gauff will not go down in history as the fastest beaten in the history of the Paris tournament finals, poor Natacha Zvereva took a 6-0, 6-0 from Steffi Graf in 34 minutes in 1988.
3:34 p.m. : If you bet on a little siesta to digest this lunchtime lamb and flageolet and watch the second round, you will have to cut short your plans, because Iga Swiatek is already leading 4-0 against a Coco Gauff who has not yet managed to rise to the occasion.
3:30 p.m. : Not at all, it’s if we start the match with the roof closed that we have to stay in this configuration until the end. On the other hand, when you start with the roof open, if he starts to fall from the halberds, the referee can decide to close the roof. I quote the tournament site: “EIn the event of deteriorating weather conditions requiring the interruption of a match played with the roof open, the decision to resume play under the same conditions or to close the roof will be taken by the referee, depending on the forecast.
3:30 p.m. : I thought we couldn’t deploy it during the match
3:25 p.m. : My Polish is a little rusty, but know that if you write the name of the player in Polish, it gives “Iga Świątek” with a kind of cedilla under the “a”, which gives an “on”.
3:25 p.m. : Hello Pierre. Why Iga Swiatek, in the mouth of the commentators is called Swiontek?
3:23 p.m. : A look at the scoreboard, Iga Swiatek leads 2-0 by managing to foul his opponent when the exchange lengthens.
3:22 p.m. : @Tantris The young Frenchman is currently ranked 380th in the world, which is an undeniable progression, but other winners had moved up the rankings more quickly. “I’ve improved a lot since last year, but I still have a lot to learn.”had recognized the young hope, eliminated from the start of qualifying.
3:22 p.m. : Pierre, how can you say that Van Assche has “never confirmed” when he is just 18 years old? Is it possible to remember that he has already won a few Challenger matches, which is not insignificant for his age?
3:18 p.m. : You forget rather quickly that there is a roof on the Central. The rain is expected around 4 p.m. in Paris, and the roof will be deployed in a few minutes.
3:17 p.m. : I bet on stopping the match due to storm
3:17 p.m. : Congratulations Gabriel Debru in the Juniors! What power, what mentality! Its large size brings it qualities and defects. He was able to get the most out of this tournament. What happiness!
3:15 p.m. : @Guill The young Frenchman Gabriel Debru has just won against Gilles Arnaud Bailly (7-6 6-3). I almost want to tell you that the hardest part begins for the Habs. Many former junior winners have never been confirmed (remember Lucas Van Assche, winner last year?)
3:13 p.m. : Hello Pierre, I took a few minutes break on the balcony, and I can’t find the broadcast of the “juniors” final. Where are these two young players? Good final ladies!
3:13 p.m. : it doesn’t matter who wins as long as the match lasts long enough that coco gauff is tired for tomorrow’s women’s doubles final where she will face French women…
3:11 p.m. : I bet on Iga Swiatek too!
3:11 p.m. : I really like Swiatek, and I would like her to win, but Gauff is exceptional.
3:10 p.m. : Hello Pierre. I bet on Coco Gauff. But I’m going to miss part of the duel because I have to pick the currants before the storms arrive 🙁
3:06 p.m. : ☀️ hello Pierre, I make the same prediction as you but obviously as usual, it’s certainly the opposite that will happen 😄
3:06 p.m. : The two finalists are 39 years old between them, which will make a lot of our readers look old. Iga Swiatek (pronounced “Svianteque”), 21 spring, against Coco Gauff, who is three fewer.
3:04 p.m. : Hello Louis, hello everyone! I arrive a little earlier to follow the ladies’ final of Roland-Garros with you. My prediction is for the Polish Iga Swiatek to win in two sets. And above all, I hope we will have a good match 😉
3:04 p.m. : You’ve been waiting for it, it’s here! Pierre Godon joins me in this live to follow, in particular, the final between the Polish Iga Swiatek and the American Coco Gauff.
3:14 p.m. : At only 18 years old, Coco Gauff qualified for her first Grand Slam final. Spotted in her eleventh year, Cori Gauff – nicknamed Coco – has always had tennis in mind and above all a thirst for victories, which very quickly brought to mind that of the Williams sisters. With, like them, a family and above all a caring father, but with the particularity of preserving his balance. Back on his journey in our article.

3:13 p.m. : The Polish Iga Swiatek and the American Coco Gauff face each other in a few minutes for the women’s singles final. “There can, potentially, be a real battle between these two because Gauff has very interesting assets, we have seen her gain strength throughout the fortnight”analyzes Justine Henin, France Televisions consultant and four times Porte d’Auteuil title.
