Coco Gauff’s search for a second Grand Slam title will move on to Wimbledon after she was defeated by world number one Iga Swiatek in the semi-finals of the 2024 French Open at Roland-Garros.

Swiatek’s straight sets win over Gauff

Three-time champion Swiatek raced out of the traps on Philippe-Chatrier, breaking in the very first game and again in game 5 to comfortably take the first set 6-2.

The American put up a sterner fight in the second, which stayed on serve until Game 7, when the Pole broke once again. Gauff, who was involved in a dispute with the chair umpire, saved two match points on her serve but was ultimately finished off by Swiatek, who served out with little drama for a 6-2, 6-4 victory.

The prize purse at the 2024 French Open is the same for men and women. As a result of reaching the last four, Gauff takes home €650,000, which works out at around $706,356.

Swiatek will pick up a minimum of €1.2 million ($1,304,042) after reaching the final but will be confident of scooping the €2,400,000 ($2,608,465) top prize.

The 20-year-old reached the final of the tournament in 2022, in which she was also beaten by Swiatek. Gauff did, however, win her first Grand Slam last year, defeating Aryna Sabalenka in the final of the 2023 US Open, becoming the first American victor since Sloane Stephens in 2017.
