The 21-year-old Polish woman, fresh off the US Open winner, has had a particular relationship with sports since she was very young. He started playing tennis to be like his brother and now he is the best in the world.
Iga Swiatek became the champion of US Open and won his third title Grand Slam. She started playing tennis because she wanted to be like Agata, her older sister, and now she is established as the best player in the world at only 21 years old. Next, I know his particular story.
Iga Swiatek: father rower, sister tennis player and their first steps
His relationship with sports started when he was very young, since his father, Tomasz Swiatek, was an Olympic rower at the 1988 Seoul Games. However, he chose a different path. At first, as a child, he tried swimming, until he got into tennis influenced by his sister. I saw how Agata always played with rackets and followed in his footsteps intending to be like him.
Her sister participated in youth tournaments and was ranked 1327 in the junior ranking in June 2014. He left in 2016 due to injury, in addition to his interest in starting to study dentistry.
instead, Iga Swiatek never stopped developing, although not everything was easy. “ANDI was really angry at first when they didn’t invite me, but later I realized that it’s useless to be angry.. Being from Eastern or Central Europe makes it difficult to get invited. Then I decided that what I had to do was to get better every day“He expressed in relation to his first steps, when he did not receive invitations to junior tournaments.
The great growth of Iga Swiatek and the incredible present
Great growth of Iga Swiatek took place in 2020. In the middle of the pandemic, the Pole exploded and showed a dazzling level, which can be seen in Roland Garros which he got that year. From there, he established himself as one of the best in the world and in March 2022 he confirmed it by being officially crowned as the No. 1 in the WTA ranking.
Your gift is brilliant. He became the first Pole to win the US Open and reached his tenth title. To contextualize what you’re getting at, the ten finals he played in his career he won without dropping a single set. A player ready to score before and after women’s tennis.
