Iga Swiatek might surpass Serena Williams with a new record

Iga Swiatek might surpass Serena Williams with a new record

To say Iga Świątek loves playing at Roland-Garros would be a massive understatement. In fact, with the Polish world No. 1’s latest dominant win over Markéta Vondroušová on Tuesday, Świątek has now firmly established one of the greatest runs we’ve ever seen in women’s tennis.

Just days after recording a dominant double bagel over Anastasia Potapova — a bagel is when a set finishes 6-0 — Świątek did it again to Vondroušová during their first set. That means Świątek has now recorded an unfathomable three bagels during the second week of a major.

It is something only nine women have ever done, with Serena Williams in 2013 being the only other star to have achieved it since 1989.

That is positively mind-boggling:

None of this dominance is particularly surprising from Świątek. In her young career, the French Open has turned out to be the Polish player’s bread and butter. Świątek is vying for her third straight singles title at Roland-Garros and her fourth win in five years. Talk about a dynasty.

Next up? The world No. 3, Coco Gauff, in the semifinals. If Świątek somehow records a bagel and beats Gauff convincingly, well, it might be time to start a well-earned coronation.
