Iga Swiatek hopes to follow in Naomi Osaka's footsteps and become multiple Grand Slam winner

Iga Swiatek says her main goal is to become "consistent" after becoming Poland's first singles Grand Slam champion with a sensational run at the French Open.

At 54 in the world, Swiatek is the lowest-ranked woman ever to win the French Open after victory over Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin in Saturday's final.

She is the youngest winner since Monica Seles in 1992, while her success has been celebrated widely back home, with former greats of the game predicting glowing futures for the Pole.

Swiatek is the latest young woman to win a major title - seven of the last eight have been claimed by players aged 23 or under - and most have found the subsequent rise in pressure and expectation hard to deal with.
