Before the tournament started it was tough to see who could stop Iga Switek from winning the French Open title. The top seed did look vulnerable when facing a match point against Naomi Osaka but has stepped it up several gears in recent matches and cruised past Coco Gauff in the semi-finals. The Pole now has the chance to match Monica Seles and Justine Henin by winning three-straight titles at Roland Garros and will start the final as the heavy favorite. 

Few would have predicted that 12th seed Jasmine Paolini would be one win away from the title as she had never been beyond the third round at a Grand Slam. However, the Italian arrived at the tournament in good form having won her first WTA 1000 title in Dubai and has impressed in Paris with her heavy hitting and accuracy. The 28-year-old was extremely impressive as she dominated rising star Mirra Andreeva in the semi-finals and may well choose to attack in the final. 

Swiatek has won both previous meetings against Paolini and has never lost more than three games in a set against the Italian. Will she continue her dominance and win a fifth major title? Tune in to find out so read on to discover how to get a Swiatek vs Paolini live stream and watch the 2024 French Open from wherever you are.
