Iga Swiatek refused to take victory at the French Open for granted despite romping to her third title in Rome by sweeping aside Aryna Sabalenka 6-2, 6-3 in Saturday's final.

World No. 1 Swiatek will be the red-hot favorite to successfully defend her crown at Roland Garros after comfortably prevailing on clay against second-ranked Sabalenka.

Swiatek, playing in front of a packed house on center court, became the first woman since Serena Williams in 2013 to win on the clay in Madrid and Rome in the same season.
