After six victories apiece in Paris, 19-year-old Iga Swiatek and 21-year-old Sofia Kenin are one win away from getting their hands on the famous Suzanne-Lenglen Cup. It all comes down to this and we’ll show you how to live stream Kenin vs Swiatek for FREE in the 2020 French Open Women’s Final, no matter where you are right now.
There’s a thrilling sense of the unknown surrounding this final, as Swiatek and Kenin have just the one Grand Slam between them – secured by the American in Melbourne at the start of the year. Swiatek has come out of nowhere to storm to the final and has said it’s a dream just to make it to the showpiece event, but a happy ending will make the achievement a million times sweeter.
Sofia Kenin vs Iga Swiatek live stream
Court Philippe Chatrier will host the Kenin vs Swiatek French Open Women’s Final today, and the start time is set for 3pm local time / 2pm BST. If you’re based in the UK, the great news is that you can watch the match for free on ITV4 and the ITV website – and you can watch if you’re abroad with a VPN. We explain how below.
The world No. 54 is yet to drop a set at Roland Garros, but what’s more impressive is how she appears to have grown stronger by the round. The Pole was ruthlessly efficient against fellow dream chaser Nadia Podoroska, wrapping up a 6-2, 6-1 win in just 70 minutes, and key to her spectacular breakthrough has been the decision to keep a sports psychologist by her side throughout.
Kenin may be a Grand Slam winner and ranked sixth in the world, but Swiatek quite simply isn’t afraid of anyone, and nor should she be after a run that has included a thrashing of world No. 1 Simona Halep.
Her opponent’s route to the final has been more fraught with danger. Four of Kenin’s six wins have gone the distance, and though she managed to defeat Petra Kvitova in two in the semi-final, she had to save 10 break points. But she held her nerve once more, and now has the chance to cement her place amongst the very best in the game right now.
If you’re even a casual tennis fan, you won’t want to miss a Kenin vs Swiatek live stream. So keep reading for your options for watching the French Open Women’s Final free of charge.
