Swiatek, Gauff Dominate First Round at French Open; Seeds Face Mixed Fortunes

Posted : 28 May 2024

Iga Swiatek commenced her quest for a fourth French Open title with a dominant display, conceding just three games against French qualifier Leolia Jeanjean in the first round. The world No. 1's swift victory in 61 minutes sets up a second-round encounter with Naomi Osaka, as Swiatek aims to make history by becoming the first woman since Serena Williams to win the Madrid, Rome, and French Opens in the same year.


Meanwhile, Coco Gauff marked her 50th Grand Slam match victory with a comprehensive win over Julia Avdeeva in the first round, securing a place in the second round. Gauff, who won the US Open last year, expressed satisfaction with her solid performance, setting up a challenging match against Tamara Zidansek in the next round.


In other matches, eighth seed Ons Jabeur cruised to victory over American wildcard Sachia Vickery, showcasing her skills and securing a comfortable win. However, there were upsets as well, with Maria Sakkari falling to Varvara Gracheva, and Karolina Pliskova being defeated by Elina Svitolina in the first round. Czech fifth seed Marketa Vondrousova and Brazil's 13th seed Beatriz Haddad Maia also experienced contrasting fortunes, with Vondrousova advancing comfortably while Haddad Maia suffered a first-round exit.
