"Swiatek, 20, of Poland, is the favorite to add a second title at Roland Garros when the year's second Grand Slam starts next Sunday."

"I already know that I did some great stuff this season, so I feel like I can just play freely," Swiatek said.

"For sure the expectations around are higher, but I never had a problem to cut it off and not to think about it. Also I'm gaining experience at that."

"Swiatek has won five straight titles during her run."

..................................................

"All these tournaments that I've won seem pretty surreal right now," she said.

"The last player to win more consecutive matches was Serena Williams, who put together run of 34 straight ending in 2013."

"The all-time longest streak belongs to Martina Navratilova, who had a run of 74 in 1984."
