Iga Swiatek continues incredible dominance with 15th bagel of the season at Roland Garros

World number one Iga Swiatek showing no signs of slipping up as she closes in on an all-time WTA record.

Iga Swiatek continued her incredible form by demolishing Alison Riske in just 61 minutes at the French Open.

Swiatek has been in dominant form this year, already winning five titles and claiming the world number one spot vacated by Ashleigh Barty's shock retirement.

She was in dominant mood again in beating Riske 6-0, 6-2 on Thursday to take her season bagel count to an incredible 15.

It was also the 30th match she has won in a row, leaving her just five away from equalling Venus Williams' all-time record.

"I'm really cheerful," Swiatek said on court after the match.

"I'm simply glad that I'm playing truly strong tennis and I think this is my most memorable singles match on Court Suzanne-Lenglen so it was a delight playing here and thank you [to the fans] for cheering."

Swiatek continued her recent trend of making incredibly strong starts to matches by winning the first nine games of the match.

Such was her dominance that Riske jokingly celebrated with the crowd when she won her first game of the contest in the second set.

Swiatek does not know why she is making such strong starts, but she is certainly happy to have developed the knack.

"It's been something I've been dealing with since I began.

"Simply being engaged and needing to come down on my opponent is truly useful as it implies that I have the drive all along and can truly lead on court.

"It isn't so much that simple before each match since you need to get psyched up and in the zone, yet I'm getting endlessly better at it."
