The first player to win the French Open women's singles championship without losing a set after Haining in 2007, the youngest French Open women's singles championship since Seles in 1992, and the French Open women's singles championship with the fewest lost games since Graf in 1988... this Everything belongs to the 19-year-old Polish girl Swatek.
In the French Open women's singles that ended last night, Swatek, ranked 54th in the world, defeated No. 4 seed Kenning 6-4, 6-1, and won her first tour-level championship in her career. It was also her first major. Slam champion. Prior to this, Swatek’s three singles champions all came from the teenage years, respectively in 2018
In 2019, Swatech, who had just turned 18, was transferred to the adult group and entered the fourth round of the French Open for the first time. A year later, Swatek won the French Open women's singles championship with a record without losing. In all 7 games, Swatek lost only 28 games, and each game only allowed his opponent to get 5 games.

At the award ceremony after the game, Swatek was a little bit cautious, "I am not very good at speaking on this occasion. The last time I won the championship was two years ago. I don't know who to thank. I want to thank you for making this event go smoothly. Everyone." When holding the Susan Langlen Cup, the happy Swatek had completely ignored the French Open's epidemic prevention regulations, took off his mask and kissed it.
"I don’t know what happened, it’s crazy. I was playing youth games here two years ago and I won the championship trophy two years later. It all happened so fast. For me, it’s a change. Life experience." Before the French Open, no one would associate Swatek, ranked 54th in the world, with the favorite to win the championship. Until the quarterfinals swept Halep, everyone discovered that this young Polish girl had great potential.
The 19-year-old Swatek played against the 21-year-old Kenning. The youngest Grand Slam final in 12 years was not easy for both sides. "She is not a machine, and I know she will also be under pressure." Swatek admits that standing on the stage of the Grand Slam finals, anyone will be under pressure. "We will definitely try our best, but we may not be the best. Good tennis, too much pressure."
19岁的Swatek与21岁的Kenning比赛。双方都不是十二年来最年轻的大满贯决赛。 “她不是机器，我知道她也将承受压力。” Swatek承认，站在大满贯决赛阶段，任何人都将承受压力。 “我们肯定会尽力而为，但我们可能不是最好的。好的网球，压力太大。”
Judging from the progress of last night's finals, Swatek is obviously more adaptable to this big scene than Kenning, even though the latter has become the Australian Open champion. "It's not that I don't care about winning or losing. The key is to keep low expectations." Swatek would like to thank his father Thomas Swatek for such a mature mentality at a young age.
从昨晚决赛的进展来看，尽管肯威已经成为澳网冠军，但斯瓦特克显然比肯宁更能适应这一大场面。 “并不是我不在乎输赢。关键是要保持低期望。” Swatek要感谢他的父亲Thomas Swatek这么年轻的心态。
The 19-year-old Swatek is domineering on the court.
The elder Swatek was a professional rower and represented Poland in the 1988 Seoul Olympics in the double four oars competition. Last night, my father and sister were cheering for Swatek in the stands.
When asked about his father’s influence on him, Swatek said that despite the different projects, his father taught her how to become a professional player. “He made me feel comfortable and adaptable on the court. He gave me everything. "
当被问及父亲对他的影响时，斯瓦特克说，尽管项目不同，父亲还是教她如何成为职业球员。 “他让我在球场上感到自在和适应。他给了我一切。 ”
Before Swatek, two Polish players had reached the Grand Slam finals. They were Janjejovska who reached the French Open final in 1939 and A. Radwans who reached the Wimbledon final in 2012. Card, but they all only got the runner-up prize.
After Swatek advanced to the final and won the championship, A. Radwanska, a senior, sent congratulations twice. In the eyes of many fans, Swatek is already the greatest tennis player in Poland, but she herself does not think so.
"I may be considered to have made history, but I still think that A. Radwanska's achievements are very remarkable. She has been at the top of the tour for 12 consecutive years, right? I can't even remember how long. "When A. Radwanska reached the Wimbledon final in 2012, Svartek was only 11 years old. "I know that many people will compare me with her, but I think I must be in the next few years. All are stable to be worthy of Poland's best. I still have a lot of work to do, and now the position of Poland's best player should still belong to A. Radwanska."
“我可能被认为已经创造了历史，但是我仍然认为A. Radwanska的成就非常出色。她已经连续12年处于巡回演出的榜首，对吗？我什至不记得多久了。”答：Radwanska于2012年进入温网决赛，而Svartek才11岁。 “我知道会有很多人将我与她进行比较，但我认为我必须在未来几年内。一切都稳定，值得波兰最好。我还有很多工作要做，现在波兰的职位最佳球员仍应属于A. Radwanska。”
Swatek has been learning from his idol Nadal in his style of play. Picture/Social Media
Swatek was born in Warsaw, Poland on May 31, 2001. If it were not for the epidemic, both Swatek and idol Nadal would spend their birthdays at the French Open.
"Nadal is my favorite player. I only watched his games when I was a kid." Swatek is a fan of Nadal. Two years ago, Swatek trained as a young player in the Nadal online school.
After defeating Trevisan in the quarterfinals, Swatek, who entered the quarterfinals of the Grand Slam for the first time, interacted with fans enthusiastically on the field. In the middle of the conversation, Swatek suddenly realized something and quickly confirmed to the staff, "Is Rafa (Nadal) going to play in a while?" After receiving the confirmed news, Swatek waved his hand and gave the venue to Nadal. Dar.
After reaching the top 4, Swatek also ran back to the court to watch the match between Nadal and Cinna. "I only watched 20 minutes because I have other things to do. Nadal is my favorite player. , I hope he can win the French Open again.” Tonight, Nadal will face Djokovic in the men's singles final to compete for his 13th French Open championship. However, after Swatek won the championship, Djokovic first congratulated her on social media.
Regarding Nadal as an idol, it is natural to learn from idols in playing style. On the clay court of Roland Garros, Swatek's super topspin can be called the female version of Nadal. In the top 4 women's singles, Swatek hits an average speed of 3182 shots per minute, far surpassing Kenning, Kvitova and others. Coming to the final, Swatek's fastest speed reached 3453 beats per minute, while Kenning's speed was only 2064 beats per minute.
Technically learning from idols, Swatek is also following the hard-working Nadal outside the stadium. After losing to Halep in the fourth round of the French Open last year, Swatek revealed that he had come to Paris with his homework and had to prepare for the final exams in addition to training games.
Coming to Paris this year, Swatek is much easier. Due to the epidemic, the tour was suspended for nearly half a year, and Swatek used this time at home to complete high school.
