Ika Sviatek and sensational Jasmin Paulini are in the finals

23-year-old Iga Swiatek defeated third-seeded American Coco Goff 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday. Jasmine Paulini defeated Russian teenager Mirra Andrejeva 6:3, 6:1 in a clash between two semi-finalists. Zviadek will play for his fourth title at Roland Garros on Saturday and it will be the 28-year-old Piolini’s first major final.

Svidek already went head-to-head with Gaff at 11:1. “In the second set it was intense, very close. I stuck to my strategy and I’m very happy to finish it without thinking too much,” said Sviatek. Defending champion Steffi Graf (1987 to 1989) won her 20th straight French Open. However, he is still 9 wins away from American Chris Evert’s record. Goff, who made 39 unforced errors, can take solace in the fact that she will make her first appearance in the WTA rankings at number two on Monday.

However Paulini continued his winning streak. “It was a tough match. She’s playing incredibly, she’s only 17 years old and it’s already over, so I was a bit nervous in the first set, but I was very relaxed with every ball. The most important thing in sports and in life is to dream, and I was able to dream at this moment. Delighted,” said Paolini. For her, the final was the biggest win of her career. Paolini was a complete outsider against Switek.
