Iga Swiatek of Poland defeated Karolina Muchova, her Czech Republic opponent, to clinch the 2023 French Open women’s singles title.

The Polish tennis star claimed her fourth Grand Slam title overall with the victory at the Court Philippe Chatrier on Saturday.

The 22-year-old beat Muchova 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 to bag a hat-trick of titles at Roland Garros.

The first set saw Muchova hit the net in a game she needed to hold her serve. She used her drop shot but Swiatek read it well and popped the ball over but the Czech player could not return. A fantastic rally gave Swiatek the first set.

Muchova fought back to win the second set 7-5 to force a third and final set which Swiatek won 6-4.

Having won the title in 2020 and 2022, the Polish player becomes the youngest three-time French Open women’s champion since Justine Henin won three straight tournaments from 2005 to 2007.

Swiatek is also the first tennis player to win the first seven sets played in a major final.
