The current world No. 1 and possible future No. 1 collide for the title in what looks set to be a memorable Women’s French Open final as Iga Swiatek takes on Coco Gauff at Roland Garros today. Read on as we explain how to watch a Swiatek vs Gauff live stream wherever you are – including ways to watch the 2022 French Open Women’s final absolutely FREE.
Swiatek extended her winning streak to 34 matches in her semi-final to match a record set by Serena Williams for the second-longest unbeaten streak on Tour since 2000. This match meanwhile marks 18-year-old Gauff’s first appearance in a Grand Slam singles final.
Gauff set up the biggest game of her short career by breezing past Italy’s Martina Trevisan 6-3 6-1on Thursday.
The American took time to settle against Trevisan before an exemplary groundstroke display saw her overpower her opponent and maintain her feat of not yet dropping a set in the tournament so far. The win ensured the world No. 23 became the youngest player to appear in any Grand Slam final in 18 years and the youngest French Open finalist in 21 years.
Swiatek meanwhile eased past Daria Kasatkina 6-2 6-1 to lengthen her winning stretch to 34 matches. A win for the Polish star in this final will see the 20-year-old equal Venus Williams’ record of 35 straight wins and is also the first player to reach six or more finals on the Tour in the first six months of the year since Serena in 2013.
