Roland Garros has one of the most attractive finals, with an Iga Swiatek, number 1 in the world, unleashed, and a Coco Gauff, 18, who is intractable despite the fact that she has never moved at this point in a Grand Slam.
The Pole adds her 34th consecutive victory in a dream year in which she has won five titles so far: Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome. She manages wonderfully in the land of Paris, which she already conquered in 2020, in the autumn edition due to the coronavirus. With sun and heat she has fun this course, with an impeccable and forceful tournament: 6-0 and 6-2, to Riske; 6-3 and 7-5, to Kovinic; 6-7 (5) -the only slip-, 6-0 and 6-2, to Qinwen; 6-3 and 6-2, to Pegula; 6-2 and 6-1 in one hour and four minutes to Kasatkina in the semifinal.
Also firm in these last rounds is the 18-year-old American, who had never passed the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam. But that she does not give up in her efforts to make that promise that was when she surprised the world a reality in the big tournaments. At the moment, she has not lost a set on the way to the final: 6-1 and 7-6 (4), to Van Uytvanck; 6-3 and 6-4, to Kanepi; 6-4 and 6-0, to Mertens; 7-5 and 6-2, to Stephens, and 6-3 and 6-1, to Trevisan.
The women's final at Roland Garros will take place on Saturday, June 4 at 3:00 p.m.
