#RolandGarros: Iga Swiatek Breaks Serena Williams’ Long-Standing Record
World Number one women’s tennis player, Iga Swiatek has broken the record that was set by former world number one, Serena Williams.
The Polish woman is now on her 35th consecutive win in a tennis game across all competitions. She achieved this feat in the final game of the Roland Garros Women’s final by beating America’s teenager, Coco Guaff in straight sets 6-1,6-3.
Swiatek is now on the same number of winning streak as Venus Williams. The Williams sister achieved this feat in the year 2000, while Serena’s run which stopped at 34 was achieved in 2013.
The World Number One has now won her sixth straight title; Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart, Rome and now the French Open. She will hope she gets to continue this form when Wimbledon kicks off.
