19-year-old Iga Swiatek from Poland won the final of the French Open, winning the trophy for the first time in her career.
Swiatek’s rival in the final was the experienced Sofia Kenin. But the polish girl played better, beating her opponent in both sets.

“First of all I’m not very good at speeches so sorry because I won my last tournament like three years ago and I really don’t know who to thank, but I want to thank every person that’s made this tournament possible because in these times it was pretty hard for the federation, the organisation to do the tournament.
I’m pretty happy we can still do our job, and enjoy and entertain people so thank you very much. It’s crazy for me because I was watching every year how Rafa lifts the trophy so it’s crazy that I’m in the same place but I want to thank all the fans and the people who are watching in Poland. I know it’s pretty crazy back home,” Swiatek said.
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will play in the final of the men’s Roland Garros tournament.
