Roland Garros: 19-year old Swiatek defeats Sofia Kenin to win maiden grand slam title


Polish teenager Iga Swiatek completed a stunning rise by becoming the lowest-ranked woman to win the French Open after beating American Sofia Kenin.

Swiatek, 19, is a former junior Wimbledon champion but the world number 54’s rise to Roland Garros history has been swift and surprising.

She showed few nerves to beat fourth seed Kenin 6-4 6-1, lifting the trophy without losing a set in the tournament.

Swiatek is also the first player from Poland to win a major singles title.
