Swiatek, who arrived in Paris having collected five consecutive trophies this season, motored through for a second-round encounter with Alison Riske.
Story of the match
In the very first point, the 20-year-old arced a forehand cross-court winner onto the tramline to set the tone for a very efficient hour.
Swiatek was exploring all the angles and dimensions of the court, pinging a backhand down the line with masterful point construction.
In three games, with just two points lost, the top seed was playing top-drawer tennis.
Gasps of “oooh” and “aaah” from the stands greeted the Pole’s play, Swiatek claiming the longer rallies, conjuring up effective shots from deep, on the baseline, in transition and at net; it was simply all working.
