Roland Garros news: How much will Iga Swiatek earn for winning the French Open final?

Iga Swiatek has won her second French Open title following a straight sets victory over Coco Gauff.

The current world number one not only claimed her second Roland Garros crown, but also extended her winning streak to 35 games. 

Swiatek put on a clinic as she sealed the title in just over an hour, winning the match 6-1 6-3 on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

The Pole, who has dropped just one set throughout the entire tournament, overpowered her 18-year-old opponent in one of the shortest French Open finals in history.

What's more, the victory takes Swiatek level with Venus Williams on the list of longest winning streaks in women's tennis since the turn of the century.

Swiatek has also improved her record in WTA finals to 9-1. The Pole has only faced defeat in her first ever final - a three set loss against Polona Hercog in the finale of the 2019 Ladies Open in Lugano.

Since then, the 21-year-old has won in nine-straight final appearances, including six this year alone.

Swiatek is the first player since Serena Williams to make six finals in the first six months of the year, with the American reaching seven back in 2013.

As well as writing her name in the history books, Swiatek will also pocket a significant amount of money.

The prize pool was increased for this year's event, meaning Swiatek will walk away with €2.2million (£1.8million) following her win. Coco Gauff, on the other hand, will earn €1.1million (£944,000).
