World number one Iga Swiatek won her third French Open and fourth Grand Slam title on Saturday with an epic three-set victory over gallant Karolina Muchova in the final at Roland Garros.

The 22-year-old Pole came through 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 to become the first woman since Justine Henin in 2007 to win back-to-back French Opens.
Swiatek also won in Paris in 2020 and 2022 and added the US Open also last year.

However, she achieved victory the hard way, giving up a set and 3-0 lead before twice recovering from breaks down in the decider.
