Iga Swiatek cemented her place at the top of women’s tennis with a landslide victory over Coco Gauff in the final of French Open. Number one seed swept away at a second Roland Garros title thanks to a 6-1 6-3 demolition of 18-year-old Gauff.

Under the eyes of superstar Polish striker Robert Lewandowski on court Philippe Chatrier, Swiatek’s hard shooting and ruthless finishing was too much for the American and capped an astonishing winning streak.

Elevated to world number one following Ashleigh Barty’s surprise retirement in March, the 21-year-old Pole has proved an unstoppable force ever since. Her streak of 35 consecutive victories places her at the level of Venus Williams for the most consecutive victories of this century. She also won six consecutive titles, the first woman to do so since Justine Henin in 2008.

It was a tough afternoon for Gauff, in her first Grand Slam final, but she didn’t hold back despite saying beforehand there was no pressure on her. Follow all the live reactions below as Swiatek defeats Gauff to win Roland Garros:
