The Roland Garros event is the only marquee event that is played on clay. Notably, the clay courts require the players to have the ability to play a quite long and big rally to win the games, which is a daunting task, especially for women in tennis.

However, despite that, there have been quite a few women who have enjoyed magnificent success on the red clay of Paris. In the same vein, we will have a look at the top five women who have won more than 20 consecutive matches at the French Open.

5. Steffi Graf – 20 (1987-1989)

Graf was a very popular player back in the late 1980s in women's tennis. It is still rare for her to have won the Golden Slam in 1988. She defeated World No. 1 Martina Navratilova in three sets to claim her first title at the French Open in 1987. However, she suffered the defeat back in 1989, and her winning streak came to an end after the loss.

4. Iga Swiatek – 20* (2022-present)

The 23-year-old has won the title back in 2022 and 2023, whereas she will be looking to win in the ongoing tournament. The Polish star is set to face Paolini in the final game after she outclassed Coco Gauff in the semi-final game on June 6.

Henin was known as one of the best players on clay. The former tennis star won the French Open title back in 2005 and did not lose a single match over the next two years. She was the winner of the French Open in 2005, 2006, and 2007; however, she made her retirement and was not able to participate in 2008 and 2009. However, she made a stunning comeback in 2010 but suffered a defeat in the fourth round of the event.
