Swiatek steamrolls Peterson at French Open, hammering Swede’s serve
Defending champion Iga Swiatek annihilated her opponent as she marched on to continue her French Open win streak.
The 2020 French Open champion, lost just two games in her match against Rebecca Peterson, dismissing the Swede in just over an hour, 6-1, 6-1.
Swiatek was strong behind her own serve, winning 80% of points on her first serve, but was a force facing serve, finding 15 break point opportunities over just two sets, converting 6 (40%).
Peterson only held serve once in fact, as one of the two games she won was a break of Swiatek’s serve.
Swiatek has spent just two and a half hours on-court across two matches at the French Open so far this year, as she racks up a ninth consecutive win at the tournament.

The Pole has also won 12 sets in a row stretching back to the round of 16 at the Italian Open, part of eight tour wins on the bounce for the youngster.
On a day when Ashley Barty, the next most recent French Open champion, was forced to pull out, the powerful 20-year-old looks set to go on strongly at this year’s tournament.
Iga Swiatek will next face 30th seed Anett Kontaveit in the third round.
