Poland’s teenager Iga Świątek aged 19 defeats Sofia Kenin in the French Open women’s singles final, and remarkably did not drop a set en route to her first career title 6-4 6-1 over Kenin title at #RolandGarros
Kenin congratulates Swiatek – ‘You played really well.’
What Iga Świątek and Sofia Kenin said after the French Open Final
A happy Swiatek speaks to WTA Insider: “Even though you’re young and you’re an underdog, you can do a lot in a sport like tennis. “Sometimes I caught myself visualizing I’m also winning a Slam. But on the other hand, it was also really far away. “Right now I’m here & I’m a Slam champion, it’s crazy.”
Sofia Kenin: “I feel like [Iga Swiatek] served really well. She dictated really well her forehand. Especially in the first set, a few shots here and there just didn’t go my way. She played some great tennis.“
Sofia Kenin on her leg injury: “Today obviously after the first set I just felt it was so tight, I couldn’t move. That’s why I had to call the trainer. It just got worse. Yeah, it’s quite unfortunate it had to happen in this match. I’ve had this in the past, but not often.”
