In the photo, Swiatek is seen wearing a hoodie with tears running down her face while holding up the congratulatory note from the pop star.

“I’m dead. Yes, I cried many times during the show. Yes, it was incredible. You are amazing @taylorswift13,” Swiatek posted to X on Friday.

Swiatek also shared a video from Swift’s concert, dancing to “Shake It Off.”

Swiatek won her fourth French Open crown on Saturday, defeating Italian rising star Jasmine Paolini 6-2, 6-1.

The win put Swiatek as the top-5 winningest women’s player to capture the title in Paris, surpassing Serena Williams, and Monica Seles, among others. The current record holder is Chris Evert with seven.

Swiatek will carry her momentum to the grass courts of London where she will be the No. 1 seed in singles play at Wimbledon. Her best result to date at the All England Club was in 2023, reaching the quarterfinals.
