Iga Swiatek will be hoping to consolidate her position at the top of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) by winning at the Roland Garros on June 5. 
The 20-year-old starlet was crowned champion at the 2020 Roland Garros and she became the first Pole to win a Grand Slam singles title.
Swiatek also became the youngest singles champion at the tournament since Rafael Nadal in 2005 and the youngest women's singles champion at a major since 2004.

Swiatek came into the first grand slam of the year, Australian Open seeded seventh and she reached the quarter-finals after defeating Sorana Cirstea in the fourth round.
In the quarter-final, she defeated Kaia Kanepi in a match at three hours and one minute before losing to Danielle Collins in the semi-final the following day.
The Warsaw-born player is coming into the 2022 Roland Garros in top form having successfully defended the Italian Open after beating Ons Jabeur last weekend. 
Swiatek's 28 consecutive victories are fourth-best since the year 2000, and the fourteenth longest in the Open Era.
“You can’t be any hotter than she is right now. She’s playing great and she’s healthy – that’s a fantastic combination,” tennis legend Martina Navratilova said as she backed Swiatek ahead of the Roland Garros.
“She’s fresh and battle-tough at the same time. She looks pretty unbeatable on any surface, particularly the clay now. So we have an overwhelming favourite going into the French when it was wide open last year. 
“Clearly, the pressure is not bothering her. She’s just embracing that. It’s great to see – when you are the favourite, and you keep on winning.”
Prize money for the 2022 Roland Garros will total €43.6 million. The men's and women's singles champions in Paris will each receive €2.2 million.
