Iga Swiatek reflected on her French Open victory on Saturday, calling it an emotional win and expressing pride in managing the pressure of being the favorite for a third straight title on Parisian clay. The world number one easily defeated Italian surprise finalist Jasmine Paolini in straight sets, 6-2 6-1, securing her fifth Grand Slam title, and her fourth at Roland Garros. Swiatek, however, noted the additional challenge of being a perfectionist. "I'm a perfectionist, so there's always pressure on me. I handle my own pressure well. External pressure affects me a bit more, but I managed it excellently in this tournament," she told reporters. "It was an emotional win because I felt a lot of stress yesterday and this morning. I knew if I focused on tennis, I could overcome it, and everything turned out as I hoped. I'm really proud of myself." Known as the queen of clay due to her dominance on the surface, Swiatek only dropped one set during the tournament, in a dramatic second-round match against Naomi Osaka where she saved a match point. She quickly recovered and dominated her opponents, notably defeating Anastasia Potapova in the fourth round with a 40-minute 6-0 6-0 victory. The 23-year-old Pole, who also won the Roland Garros title in 2020, acknowledged that perfectionism can be a double-edged sword. "When I do anything, I want to do it 100%. Being a perfectionist means being one in all aspects," Swiatek explained. "But it's tricky because it helps you improve but can also be a heavy burden." Looking forward to the grasscourt season and Wimbledon next month, Swiatek hopes to adapt quickly to the surface change, as she did last year when she reached the quarter-finals. "Last year's result was good. I feel it gets easier each year to adapt to grass," she said. "But it's a big challenge. If I had been eliminated earlier here, maybe I could have played more on grass and improved. But if I had to choose, I love playing on clay, and I won't give that up."
