Iga Swiatek achieved the rare feat of winning a third successive French Open women’s title after a comprehensive victory over Italian 12th seed Jasmine Paolini.

Poland’s Swiatek, 23, continued her recent dominance on the Roland Garros clay with a 6-2 6-1 win against first-time major finalist Paolini.

The world number one trailed by an early break but instantly hit back and won 11 of the next 12 games.

It has secured Swiatek a fourth title in Paris and a fifth Grand Slam triumph overall after her victory at the 2022 US Open.
