Iga Swiatek, a Polish tennis player, rose to No. 1 in the world in 2022 with a game that left fans in awe.
The decision to retire earlier than former world number 1 Ashleigh Barty facilitated the increase. Furthermore, coming from a country where tennis doesn’t get too much attention, he continues to train hard and regularly. Recently, he talked about how he is currently training with his coach, Tomasz Wiktorowski.
The world number 1 tennis player has further cemented his name in the tennis world by bagging consecutive wins this season. Earlier this season she won the Qatar Open title in Doha, then won the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, before defeating four-time Grand Slam title-claimer Naomi Osaka in the Miami Open final.
The 2020 French Open champion continued that winning streak when he won the Stuttgart Open. After that, he chose to take a break from WTA tournaments, including skipping the Madrid Open, and focus on his recovery. Now he will return to compete at the Italian Open, Roma and talk about the approach he will take to win more matches.
Fans recognized the Polish national as a tough and aggressive game, which helped him dominate opponents and take control of the match.
“In the first tournaments with Tomasz, I changed my attitude more and became more aggressive. Now that we have strengthened our work, we can also start to do something new in technique,” said Iga Swiatek.
The 20-year-old also quickly traverses the court, which allows her to overcome opponents’ blows. Next, he will now focus on a new technique that will certainly make the fans happy to see what he will show on the pitch.
Prior to arriving at the Italian Open, the Polish national took a break after the Stuttgart Open. He focused on recovering from the injury he couldn’t let go of at the time. Now, he is back and the anticipation to see him compete is quite high.
Appearing as the defending champion and first seed at the Italian Open this season, Swiatek will start in the second round against American Shelby Rogers or Romanian Elena Gabriela Ruse.
