Tennis-Swiatek overcomes slow start to reach French Open fourth round

Defending champion Iga Swiatek overcame a sluggish start to book her place in the last 16 of the French Open with a 7-6(4) 6-0 victory over Estonian Anna Kontaveit on Saturday. The 20-year-old Swiatek, who last year became the youngest player to lift the Suzanne Lenglen Cup since Monica Seles in 1992, found better angles as the match went on to set up a meeting with Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk. Kostyuk, 18, has progressed without dropping a set.
