The 3-time Grand Slam winner and two-time French Open champion Swiatek of Poland booked her final berth at the Roland Garros after she survived her first test, beating Brazilian fourteenth seed Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-2 7-6 (7) in the semifinal match on Thursday (June 8).
Muchova, on the other hand, produced one of the shocks of the French Open by upsetting Aryna Sabalenka to reach her first grand slam final. The Czech came from 5-2 down in the final set, saving a match point, to win 7-6 (5) 6-7 (5) 7-5 against the Belarusian in the other semifinal match.
While Swiatek, who won the Roland Garros title in 2020 and 2022, got past the likes of Coco Gauff to reach the final, Muchova had to beat top seeds like Maria Sakkari and Sabalenka en-route to the final.

Swiatek vs Muchova Head to Head
The duo have met only once so far and it was at the 2019 Prague Open, where Karolina Muchova came from a set down to defeat Iga Swiatek in the opening round. And the match that was contested on clay court ended 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in favour of the Czech.
However, the Polish star has improved since then, having won three grand slam titles – two French Open titles in 2020 and 2022 followed by the US Open in 2022. She has also won three of three finals in grand slams so far.
