Swiatek Wins 34th Match in a Row
World No. 1 Swiatek has tapped into an unprecedented level of consistency that is rarely seen in the women’s game this century. Legend Martina Navratilova won 74 straight matches (1984) while Steffi Graff boasts the second-best run at 66 (1989-90).
Swiatek is a long way away from matching players such as Navratilova and Graff – that was a different time in tennis, never mind. However., she did catch up to the great Serena Williams in the record books.
Nice win streak company 👏

Serena set the record at 34 for the second-longest match winning streak this century. She accomplished the feat in 2013 with a 34-match unbeaten run from Miami to Wimbledon.
After Serena Williams, sister Venus Williams holds the record at 35 for the longest winning streak in the 21st century. Venus set the record in 2000.
Swiatek dismissed Daria Kasatkina in the semis 6-2. 6-1 to come through as the favorite in the betting online markets. It took the Pole merely 64 minutes to pull off the feat.
With a win on Saturday, Swatek will move ahead of the Williams in the record books but, more importantly, she will clinch her second Grand Slam title in Paris.
Gauff Seeks Maiden Grand Slam
Gauff came into the French Open as one of the contenders in futures tennis betting markets, but with odds of +2000, she was just on the fringe of the Top 10 best bets.
American’s aren’t typically known for their prowess on clay, but Gauff is the exception. Indeed, she’s always been a solid player on the red dirt, going back to her junior days.
Gauff was the girls’ French Open champion in 2018 at the age of 14. She defeated fellow American Caty McNally, 1-6, 6-3, 7-6 (1), in the final of the 2018 French Open.
Gauff has the opportunity to not only win her maiden title on Saturday. She can also become only the seventh player to claim French Open titles in both the juniors and pros.
What a victory! 👏👏👏
Coco Gauff is into the French Open final, where she will meet world number one Iga Swiatek.
She’s blown Martina Trevisan away 6-3 6-1 and is the third youngest Grand Slam finalist since 2000!

Swiatek vs Gauff Prediction
Even though Swiatek opened as the firm favorite at the sportsbook exchange, early betting trends appear to be split down the middle.
This suggests that, at least in the eyes of tennis bettors, this final is more of a tossup for tennis picks than the odds would have it.
Whether that is the case in reality, the fact remains that Swiatek is riding incredible form right now. She looks nigh-invincible and it will take a lot from first-time finalist Gauff to upset the World No.1. As such, backing Swiatek to victory seems like the smart bet.
On the flip side, Gauff has played well over the fortnight in Paris. If there’s one thing that she is likely to do, it’s make a fist of it and that could make things very interesting indeed.
