It's the women's final of the second grand slam of the season on Saturday at the French Open.

Who will be competing in the final?

Iga Swiatek vs Coco Gauff.

What time is the French Open women's final?

Players will be on court shortly after 2pm BST and the final will get under way after a five minute warm-up.

Where is it taking place?

On Philippe Chatrier at Roland Garros.

What are they saying?

Poland's Swiatek is on a remarkable 34-match winning streak and should the 2020 Roland Garros champion lift the Suzanne Leglen Cup again, she will match Venus Williams's run from 2000 - the longest on the women' tour in the 2000s.

"I'm just trying to treat these (final) matches as any other matches, because it is stressful, and I accept that. But I want to keep doing the same work.

"It's been going on well. I'm also aware sometimes my opponents are stressed so I'm trying to kind of realise that and not panic about my own stress.

"Remembering why I got here and what my strengths are, this is really helping me. So I think it's all about the mindset and the preparation I have before the match."

Coco Gauff will be appearing in her first Grand Slam singles final on the main tour although she won the junior title in Paris in 2018.

"I think going in I have nothing to lose and she's definitely the favourite going into the match on paper.

"But I think that going in, I'm just going to play free and play my best tennis. I think in a Grand Slam final anything can happen."
