She barely dropped games, let alone a set, in Paris
By winning all 14 sets she played - and dropping just 28 games through seven matches - Swiatek becomes the first player to win the women’s singles title in Paris without dropping a set since Justine Henin claimed her fourth and final title in 2007.
Swiatek dropped a 6-1 set on her opponent in six of her seven matches and never lost more than four games in a set, doing that only twice.
It was her authoritative tennis that earned her those lopsided scorelines. Swiatek cracked 175 winners and broke serve 38 times. The 19-year-old also won 57 of 73 (78 per cent) points at the net and spent only eight hours and 24 minutes on court in her seven matches.
Hello, top 20
A top-20 debut is in the offing for the 19-year-old.
Swiatek, whose ranking previously peaked at 48 on February 3rd of 2020, is projected to jump 37 spots to No.17 in the world in Monday's WTA rankings, and will surpass Amanda Anisimova and Coco Gauff to become the highest-ranked teenager on tour at the moment.
Swiatek started 2019 ranked at 175 in the world, and had just cracked the top 300 for the first time a little over two years ago.
