The Suzanne Lenglen Cup’s lid fell off as Iga Swiatek shook the trophy in the air after losing her opening set of the competition on the way to winning her third French Open title on Saturday.

When the 22-year-old Pole, who had just been presented with the Cup by former great Chris Evert, came onto the platform, the lid of the trophy tumbled to the red dirt as she lifted it with a wide grin.

Gilles Moretton, the head of the French Tennis Federation, took it up and replaced the Cup’s lid, but Swiatek quickly set it back down next to her feet to resume her celebrations.

In the championship, Swiatek defeated Czech Karolina Muchova 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.
