2024 French Open women's semifinal results, score: Iga Swiatek cruises past Coco Gauff to third straight final

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek is one step closer to completing a three-peat at the French Open after a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Coco Gauff during Thursday's semifinal round. Swiatek is now 11-1 in their all-time series.

Swiatek has won 18 consecutive clay matches, as well as 20 straight at the French Open, with her last loss being in the 2021 quarterfinals.

"I think my persistency and the way I stuck to my tactics," Swiatek said during her broadcast courtside interview. "...In the end it wasn't easy to finish. I'm happy I served well in the last game. I can gain some more confident because of that."

Swiatek was able to break Gauff twice in the first set, but the American star showed mental maturity and stayed focused to make it more competitive. Gauff, who has reached a career-high World No. 2 ranking, was aggressive during the match and used her speed as an advantage. However, too many unforced errors and some struggles with her forehand proved costly for her.

Gauff was able to find a 3-1 lead in the second set despite an emotional moment after a disagreement with the chair umpire over a call. But just when she was picking up momentum, Swiatek reminded the Roland Garros crowd why she is the World No. 1 and climbed her way back up to get the job done in straight sets. 

Gauff did not go down without a fight, as Swiatek had the advantage when she was up 5-3 but the 20-year-old managed to hold serve and force Swiatek to serve out the match.

"I honestly try to forget about the score and just continued playing the game that I was playing that got me here," Swiatek said. "Yeah I was a break up, but I didn't feel the match was over because Coco was fighting till the end.'

Swiatek will take on the winner of the match between No. 12 seed Jasmine Paolini. Both are making their Grand Slam semifinal debut.

No. 12 Jasmine Paolini takes a 6-3, 6-1 win over Mirra Andreeva

Paolini's breakout season continues as she advances to her first ever Grand Slam final. She will be cracking the WTA top 10 for the first time in her career next week. Paolini just became the first Italian woman at the final of the French Open since Sara Errani in 2012. Errani is also her doubles partner and they will be competing during Friday's semifinal.

At only 17 years old, Andreeva has already showing a lot of potential and has a bright future ahead of her. However, she only got 11 winners while registering 29 unforced errors against Paolini.

No. 1 Iga Świątek wins 6-2, 6-4 against No. 3 Coco Gauff

Świątek is advancing to the 2024 French Open final and needs just one more win to complete her three-peat. She has now won 20 straight matches at Roland Garros since losing in the 2021 quarterfinals.

After Gauff's 3-1 lead in the second set, Swiatek stopped that momentum and climbed her way back up. She had the advantage when she was up 5-3, but Gauff pushed back and got one more game before Swiatek walked away with the straight-sets victory. 

Next up, Swiatek will take on the winner of the match between No. 12 seed Jasmine Paolini.

Gauff's lead in the second set was short-lived as Swiatek is now up 4-3. The Polish star is just two games away from another final at Roland Garros, but if Gauff remains focused she still has a chance to push for a third set.

Gauff is not backing down and takes a 3-1 lead in the second set. She was visibly upset after a Swiatek ball was called out before she finished her swing. Gauff disagreed with the call and unsuccessfully talked to the chair umpire. 

"He called it before I hit it," Gauff said. "The fans are booing because they know you're wrong. I have to right to finish my swing."

However, she used that emotion to continue a potential comeback against Swiatek.
