‘Lovers of Paris’ CivionTech wins second consecutive French Open

Iga Cibionte (22-Poland-World No. 1) won her second straight French Open tennis title.

The 22-year-old defeated Karolina Muhova, 27, Czech Republic, 2-1 (6-2, 5-7, 6-4) in the women’s singles final at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, on Tuesday.

Coming into the tournament as the defending champion, she became the first player in 16 years to win back-to-back titles at the event since Justine 메이저사이트 Ennin (41-Belgium-4), who won three in a row from 2005-2007.

Here’s a breakdown of his French Open victories by the numbers.

1 Cibionte started the second set with a 3-0 lead, but eventually fell back to 5-7. This was the first time the team dropped a set in a major tournament final in eight sets. He had won 20 consecutive sets at the French Open since dropping the first set to Chung Chin-won (21st, 19th, China) 6-7 in the round of 16 last year.

2 At 22 years and 10 days old, Sibyontek became the youngest player to win back-to-back French Open titles since 1990-1992 champion Monica Seles (50-Yugoslavia). Seles was 18 years, 6 months and 4 days old when she won in 1991. She is the youngest player to reach the final two years in a row since Ana Ivanovic (36, Serbia-retired), who was runner-up in 2007 and winner in 2008. Ivanovic reached the 2008 French Open final at the age of 20 years, 7 months, and 1 day.

3 Sibyon Tech has won the French Open three times, including in 2020. He is the eighth player to win the French Open three or more times since 1968 (the Open Era), when professional players were allowed to compete in all four majors. Only three players have won more French Open titles than him – Chris Evert (69, USA – 7), Steffi Graf (54, Germany – 6) and Ennin (4).

4 This is the fourth major title for Sibyontek, who was also the U.S. Open champion last year. No other active female player has won more majors than her. Only Naomi Osaka (26-Japan-404th) has matched her with four titles. Osaka has been off the court since announcing her pregnancy in January of this year.

5 Mujova was previously unbeaten in five matches against players ranked in the top three in the world, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the No. 1 and defending champion in the final. The two have met three times so far on clay, with Mujova winning all three.

93.3% With the win, the French Open champion improves to 28-2 in his career at the French Open (93.3% winning percentage). Only Margaret Court (81-AUS) has a higher winning percentage among players with 15 or more French Open wins. Court leaves the French Open with a 95.2% winning percentage (44-5). Her best single-tournament winning percentage is 95.5% (60-3) at the Australian Open.
