Fraser-Pryce won her fifth world title at the world championships in Eugene, Oregon, last month and has been in unbeatable form ever since: her victory in Monaco was her third sub-10.70 run within a week.
Streaking through in second in balmy, overcast, conditions was Jamaican teammate Shericka Jackson, the world 200m champion, in a personal best of 10.71sec.
Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast ran 10.72 sec. to set an African record in third, just one-hundredth of a second adrift of Jackson, as all seven starters went sub-11sec.
