Swiatek will be chasing her third title in Paris in four years and fourth Grand Slam title overall while Muchova is trying to follow in the footsteps of Barbora Krejcikova, a fellow Czech player who won her first Grand Slam at Roland Garros two years ago.

On paper, Swiatek, the world No. 1, is the favorite. Muchova, however, did win their only previous battle, albeit four years ago. The Czech has already shown she's not afraid of the big occasion, having beaten No.2 seed Aryna Sabalenka in the semis.
