Swiatek, who became the youngest woman to win consecutive titles at Roland-Garros since Monica Seles in 1992, is now one of three active players to own four or more Grand Slam titles, alongside Venus Williams and Naomi Osaka.
How did she feel, precisely, when her fourth Grand Slam title was won?
"I don't know what I felt," Swiatek told a crowded press room two hours after hoisting the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen for the third time. "It's hard to describe. But a lot of happiness. I felt suddenly tired of these three weeks. Maybe my matches weren't like physically exhausting, but it's pretty hard to kind of keep your focus for these almost three weeks.
"And also the whole [clay court] swing. Since Stuttgart I haven't been home. So I'm happy that I finished the whole clay court swing so well, and that I kind of survived.
"I guess I'm never going to kind of doubt my strength again maybe because of that."
