"I had a good day today since I woke up, so I knew that I'm going to be in the right mood," she said. "I just kept that. I did my routines before the match. Then when I was on the court, I just felt the ball perfectly. I felt like I could do anything with it. So I'm pretty happy that I had this, you know, this attitude right now."
Swiatek - who became the youngest player to lift the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen since Monica Seles in 1992 last autumn - entered the tournament in sizzling form, after winning the Rome title on the strength of a 6-0, 6-0 victory over world No.10 Karolina Pliskova in the final.
She hasn't skipped a beat in Paris, where she is off to the third round with momentum on her side.
The focus factor
Court craft. A sixth sense. Focus factor. Whatever you call it, Swiatek has it in spades and she uses it to methodically motor past her opponents.
In her relatively short career, Swiatek has shown a rare penchant for front-running. Not only does the Pole perform exceptionally while protecting a lead, she also has a knack for stretching a slim advantage, making it bigger and essentially providing her opponent with a mental gut punch.
