Newly-crowned Roland Garros champion Iga Swiatek got out of the tournament bubble on Sunday and took her Suzanne Lenglen Cup to the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette in Paris.

For the traditional trophy photoshoot, Swiatek wore a collared dress featuring multi-color vertical stripes and black flat shoes. With the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop, the 19-year-old could finally enjoy Paris from a different perspective than a hotel room. What’s more, the teenager earned $1.9 million with her maiden major title, so she could definitely afford to treat herself with some luxury items in the upmarket French department store chain.

Iga’s older sister Agata Swiatek joined her for a set of pics. As we know from one Iga’s interview, her sister was the first one who started playing tennis, but because of an injury she stopped four or five years ago. Iga never managed to beat her.

Just to remind you, Swiatek raced to her first career title without dropping a set and became the first Polish Grand Slam champion in history. Moreover, the world No.54 is the lowest-ranked French Open champion since the computer rankings were introduced in 1975. On Monday, she’ll climb to a career-high of No.17.

  1. Oh dear. Let’s hope she’s got enough money to pay for a stylist now. But clearly she’s very good at tennis.

  2. CLT, hahaha. Well, the dress is OK, but the shoes are for grannies. It’s not important, anyway. Just that she continues this level of tennis.

  3. I actually love the dress. She’s only 19 and dressed appropriately for her age. I find most of these women tennis players bring out the most gaudy revealing dresses they can find and load up on the make up. Swiatek has a very refreshing look. Great European style for Paris.

  4. Janester, from what I can recall, when it comes to these Grand Slam trophy photoshoots, players always looked classy and didn’t wear too much makeup. Naomi Osaka, another young player who has done three of these recently, looked fashionable and cute every time.

  5. The dress would look nice if it was about a metre shorter. Too matronly for a 19 year old. As it is, yes a bathrobe. But I do agree some players really overdo it. My fave is Garbiñe – she always looks very chic.
