After Ashleigh Barty's retirement, Iga Swiatek started to dominate the WTA Tour, and with it came her second Grand Slam triumph at the 2022 Roland Garros.

Back in 2020, Iga Swiatek lifted her first Grand Slam title in Paris. It was one of the most dominant performances at a major as she dropped only 28 games, or, on average, four games per match.

But since then, the young Pole hasn't been able to add another Grand Slam title to her collection. That was only until the 2022 Roland Garros. World no. 1 started as a big favorite, and she soon confirmed her position as she lost only four games in the first two matches.

On her way to the title, the Pole lost only one set and defeated three seeded players. Can you name everyone she defeated along the way? Try our quiz to find out and don't miss the summary below.

Iga Swiatek's 2022 Roland Garros Triumph Summary:

Two years after her memorable French Open victory, Swiatek once again showed her clay prowess in Paris, when she lost only one set on her way to her second Grand Slam title.

In the first three rounds, the Polish player dispatched Lesia Tsurenko, Alison Riske, and Danka Kovinic, without having much trouble against any of the opponents.

Rising Chinese talent, Qinwen Zheng proved to be the most challenging hurdle, as she managed to win the opening set 7-6, but proved to be no match afterward as Swiatek won the following two sets 6-0, 6-2.

After that, it was a walk in the park for the Polish player, who bested Jessica Pegula, Daria Kasatkina, and Coco Gauff, as neither of the players stood a chance against her in their matches. Swiatek was just too good and rightfully won her second major on clay.
