(VIDEO) Swiatek receives huge cake from Roland Garros in stark comparison from Madrid Open fiasco

Iga Swiatek received a huge cake at the French Open, sparking comparisons with the one given to Aryna Sabalenka at the Madrid Open.

Swiatek is at the French Open aiming to defend the titles she won in 2020 and 2022, as well as fighting to maintain her position at the top of the rankings against the strong threat of Aryna Sabalenka, who could become the world No. 1 after Roland Garros with good results.

The Polish player turned 22 on May 31, and the tournament organizers gifted her a cake. Former tennis player Amelie Mauresmo presented her with a gift and sang "happy birthday" to her.

Many fans on Twitter recalled the situation that Aryna Sabalenka experienced, receiving a small cake during the Madrid Open, while Carlos Alcaraz received a significantly larger one.

"Hope Sabalenka don't see this video," wrote a fan. "Don't think of giving a French male player a bigger cake," said another fan.

Swiatek successfully advanced past the first round against Spanish player Cristina Bucsa and will face American player Claire Liu in the second round on Thursday, June 1.
