Before the game on October 11th, Beijing time, who would have thought that this year’s French Open women’s singles champion would be the 19-year-old dark horse Sviatek who had never reached the top of the WTA before. This young girl born in Warsaw brought Poland to Poland. A Grand Slam singles champion. In fact, the French Open has always been a hotbed of unpopularity, and it is also the place where many players won the first Grand Slam championship.
Including Sviatek in the French Open this year, a total of 18 non-seeded women's singles finals have been reached in the open era, and 7 of them completed this feat at the French Open.
A total of six unseeded players in the Australian Open entered the final championship battle. However, these six people include Serena Williams who has returned from injury and Haining who has ushered in the second part of his career, as well as French stars Pierce and Mauresmo and two-time Grand Slam champion Muguruza. People are obviously more unexpected. Among these 18 people, only O'Neal, Serena, Clijsters, Ostapenko, Stephens and Sviatek won the final championship.
Since the 1968 French Open, which is the public era, a total of 54 people have won at least one Grand Slam championship, of which 20 have done it in the French Open, including famous players such as Evert Graf and Celes.
Since 2000, 27 people have won their Grand Slam maiden championships. Among them, 10 players achieved their first championship dream in Paris (US Open 7, Australian Open 6, Wimbledon 4). They are:

The French Open must also be the most unstable and occasional Grand Slam game played by female players. Since 2000, Krzysztof, Capriati, Dawei, Haining, Deva, Schiavone, Serena Williams, Halep, Ostapenko and Vandrosova all had a round trip the previous year and reached the French Open final the following year. Among them, Capriati, Henin, Schiavone, Serena and Ostapenko all won the final championship.
The 2019 champion Batty has only won two main games in the previous five times in the French Open and has never reached the third round. Miskina and Elani even won six consecutive games to reach the finals after only winning the French Open in their previous career. The former won the only Grand Slam championship.
Clijsters in 2001 and Ostapenko in 2017 both won six games in a row and reached the finals in the previous French Open without a win, and they also had their birthdays on the same day. Unfortunately, the Belgian star has never reached the top of the French Open.
The French Open this year is still unpopular. No. 2 seed Ka-Pliskova was eliminated in the second round. Top seed Halep was swept by Sviatek in only three games in the round of 16. The single top seed's worst performance in a single game. In addition, this year's U.S. Open runner-up Azarenka was upset in the second round, and the 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams retired before the second round. Dawei, the 7-time Grand Slam champion, stopped again in the first round. Two-time Grand Slam champion Muguruza was eliminated in the third round.
In this year’s French Open Women’s Singles quarterfinals, four players made their first Grand Slam quarterfinals (Sviatek, Podoroska, Trevisan, Sigmund), the last time they appeared in a Grand Slam. The situation is still the 2009 US Open.
And this year's French Open women's singles quarterfinals have five unseeded players, including two qualifiers (NO.131 Podoloska and NO.159 Trevisan). The last time the French Open women's singles quarterfinals had two qualifiers dates back to 1978, and the last time the Grand Slam women's singles quarterfinals had two qualifiers was 1999 Wimbledon.
In the semi-finals stage, Argentine qualifier Podolska became the first qualifier to reach the French Open women's singles semi-finals in the open era. Two unseeded players Sviatek and Podoloska met in the women's singles semifinals. The last time this happened at the Grand Slam was in the 2010 Australian Open (Haining defeated Zheng Jie in the final, and Haining lost to top seed Serena Williams in the final) , The last time such a situation occurred in the French Open dates back to 1983 (Jasovitz defeated Chowdhury, and in the final Jasovitz lost to No. 2 seed Evert).
In the final, the non-seeded Sviateck went black to the end and won his first Grand Slam title without losing a set, making the French Open this year "cold to the end".
