World No. 1 Iga Swiatek advanced to her third consecutive French Open women’s singles final with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Coco Gauff on Thursday. On Saturday, Swiatek will be taking on Jasmine Paolini, who will be playing in her first-ever Grand Slam final, for the French Open title. 

Swiatek has won 18 consecutive clay matches and is on 20-match winning streak at Roland Garros since 2022. As she chases a three-peat, the 23-year-old from Poland becomes just the third woman to make it this far in the French Open in three straight years, joining Justine Henin and Maria Sharapova.

Meanwhile, this has been a breakout season for Paolini, a 28-year-old Italian. Paolini had never made it past the second round in a major before this year, but she was ready for the moment when she collected a 6-3, 6-1 win over Mirra Andreeva in the semifinals. Paolini will be making her debut in the WTA top 10 next week and is set to be at least No. 7. 

Swiatek and Paolini have faced each other twice, with the Polish star leading the series 2-0. They have not met since the first round of the 2022 US Open, a match Swiatek won 6-3, 6-0.

On the men’s side, an exciting final four have emerged. Despite losing World No. 1 Novak Djokovic to injury in the quarterfinals, the remaining men are some of the best in the world with No. 2 Jannik Sinner set to take on No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz and No. 4 Alexander Zverev set to face No. 7 Casper Ruud. Sinner, 22, will be looking to get his second major title after winning the Australian Open earlier this year. Alcaraz, meanwhile, is looking for his third after winning Wimbledon last year and the U.S. Open in 2022. He came up short in the semifinals last year against Djokovic. 

Here is everything you need to know about the 2024 French Open.
