Swiatek has blown away all opponents at Roland-Garros, dropping just one set en route to her second French Open final. The world no.1 is now on a run of 34 consecutive victories and looks somewhat unbeatable. In fact, she's only lost three matches all year and is yet to taste defeat on clay in 2022.

All signs point to the 21-year-old Pole taking her second Grand Slam title then, but standing in her way is American teenager Cori 'Coco' Gauff.

Gauff, seeded 18 at the French Open 2022, is in her first Grand Slam final, and indeed had never been past the quarter-final stage before. But she was impressive in beating Martina Trevisan in straight sets in the semi, and the 18-year-old American is now certain to climb to at least 13 in the world rankings — a new career high. She's also the youngest finalist at Roland-Garros since Kim Clijsters in 2001.

They've met twice before, with Swiatek winning both times, but the Polish star thinks Coco could be one of her main rivals, stating that "maybe this will become a special rivalry for years to come." 

Will Swiatek take her second Grand Slam title, or will Gauff get her first? You'll have to watch an Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream to find out. Right now, Swiatek is a -700 favorite (bet $700 to win $100) according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Gauff is listed at +475 (wager $100 to win $475).

If you're lucky enough to live in Australia, France or Austria then you should get FREE coverage of the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream.

That's because the free-to-air 9Gem and its 9Now (opens in new tab) streaming service in Australia, France.TV (opens in new tab) in France and ServusTV (opens in new tab) in Austria all have rights to the French Open. 

But what if you're usually based in one of those countries but aren't at home for a particular French Open live stream? Maybe you're on holiday and don't want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you'd usually be able to watch for free at home?

Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We'll show you how to do that below.

How to watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream from anywhere with a VPN

It's natural that you might want to watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream from your home country, but what if you're not there when it's on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, an Australian who's currently in the U.S. could watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream on 9Now (opens in new tab), even though they're not in Australia. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 9Now or another website and watch the tennis match.

Viewers can watch all the action on NBC and the Tennis Channel, plus selected Bally Sports regional networks. NBC can be accessed with one of the best TV antennas, while the Tennis Channel is available in some cable packages. 

If you've cut the cord and don't have cable, you can watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream via several live TV services, including NBC's own Peacock (opens in new tab), plus Sling TV and Fubo.TV.

Of these options, we recommend Peacock: it costs just $4.99/month with ads, or $9.99 without, and includes lots more great content as well as the French Open live streams from Roland-Garros.

If you go the SlingTV route, you'll want Sling Blue, which is $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including NBC (in select regions). It also includes the Tennis Channel as part of its Sports Extra package, for an extra $11/month. On the plus side, right now Sling is offering $10 off the first month (opens in new tab)

Fubo.TV, meanwhile, costs $70 per month for 121 channels. Sports fans will find a number of niche sports channels among its lineup. 

If you already use those services but aren't in the U.S. right now, you can watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). And if, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.

British tennis lovers also have a couple of options to watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream from Roland-Garros, but the situation isn't quite as good as in previous years.

This year, the tournament won't be available to watch on free-to-air channels, whereas last year it was on ITV. 

Instead, Discovery Plus (opens in new tab) and Eurosport (opens in new tab) have the rights to all French Open live streams. Don't worry about the fact that there are two channels listed; Eurosport is being rolled into Discovery Plus, so it won't matter which you subscribe to.

Discovery Plus is available for £6.99/month or £59.99/year. You can sign up for Discovery Plus here (opens in new tab), or access the service via Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab) — and here you can get a seven-day free trial of the service. Plus, if you don't already have Amazon Prime itself, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of that at the same time. 

Going on holiday this week or next? Sign up to ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) or another VPN service and you'll be able to use the services you already subscribe to.

Aussies should be able to watch the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff live stream on Channel Nine, after they cut a deal for exclusive coverage from Roland-Garros that also saw them broadcast last year's tournament. 

As a result, the Iga Swiatek vs Cori Gauff tie will air on the free-to-view 9Gem channel and via the on-demand service 9Now (opens in new tab)

However, you may want to go for Stan Sport (opens in new tab) instead. Stan will be showing every French Open match in Australia, ad-free and in up to 4K. You'll need a subscription for this one, but it costs a very reasonable $20 AUD per month ($10 for a standard subscription and $10 for the Sport add-on). A 30-day FREE trial (opens in new tab) gives you a taste of the platform — and the good news is that the Sport add-on also has a 7-day FREE trial.

You'll need to pay extra to access HD or 4K streams and to increase the number of devices you watch on, but even if you go for the full-fat Premium sub with the Sport add-on, you'd still only be looking at $29/month.

As well as the French Open live streams, Stan also has tennis action from Wimbledon, Champions League 21/22 live streams, Europa League coverage plus a huge amount of live Rugby.

Not in Australia right now? You can simply use a VPN, such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), to watch all the action on your Stan account, as if you were back home.
