Iga Swiatek is the first Polish player to win the Grand Slam after beating Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin in just two fast games, 6-4 and 6-1.
The 19-year-old also replicates Jelena Ostapenko ‘s success three years earlier, becoming the second seedless women’s singles champion in the history of Roland Garros and the person with the lowest WTA ranking in the championship.
Swiatek is shocked by her glory, though she was only qualified to attend the Grand Slam tournaments for young players two years back. In 2019, she took part in Roland Garros and had to break up shortly after a swift loss against former World No. 1 player Simona Halep.
In two years of Grand Slam participation, Swiatek ‘s highest result before winning the 2020 Open Championship will be in round 4. Previously, this stunning women’s tennis singles title set won just 7 ITF singles titles and the top ranking in the career was 48 February 2020.
In national shirt colors, Swiatek was a part of the Polish team that won the Youth Fed Cup in 2016 and won the Women’s Double Gold at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Swiatek boasts a precision point serving expertise and a good internal dual capability. Those two “guns” allowed Swiatek to build resounding victories.
To go to glory, Swiatek has always joined the fight with ease. Mental tension has been overcome early by the coaching staff. Modern battle, working with coach Piotr Sierzputowski, or the way to recover and relax with sports psychologist Daria Abramowicz, will allow Swiatek to continue to excel in the Grand Slam and not to crumble under pressure, collapsing in shape like Naomi Osaka did when she first won the Grand Slam at the age of 20.
