Swiatek, the champion here in 2020, has now reached the second week in all four of her Roland Garros appearances, and she has won 17 of her 19 matches at the tournament.

Her active winning streak, which stretches back to February and encompasses titles in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome, is the fourth-longest of the 21st century. The 20-year-old Pole is one win away from tying Justine Henin’s 32 in 2007-08; a final would equal Serena Williams’s 34 in 2013; and a title would put her level with Venus Williams’s 35 in 2000.

No.95-ranked Kovinic, the first Montenegrin to reach the third round at Roland Garros, delivered a valiant performance that meant Swiatek could not repeat the smooth sailing of her opening two rounds. Having never gone beyond the second round of a major in 17 main draws prior to this year, Kovinic has now made the third round of both of this year’s Slams.

Swiatek will next face 19-year-old Roland Garros debutante Zheng Qinwen, who reached the fourth round of a major for the first time after Alizé Cornet retired trailing 6-0, 3-0.
