Radwanska: Coaching a player like Swiatek will be a challenge

Radwanska was once one of the best players in the world, but she doesn’t really have much coaching experience. Now, she will have the chance to work with three-time Grand Slam champion and world number one, Swiatek.

«It’s going to be a challenge for me also to train such good players like Iga and Hubert. Playing is one thing, but sitting on the bench is another. I don’t know which is more difficult, to be honest, so I guess we’ll see each other. there,» added Radwanska.

In 2015, Radwanska and Jerzy Janowicz helped Poland win the Hopman Cup. Now Poland has a new generation of tennis players and is ready to compete in a newly established mixed team event. «Events like this are always very exciting, especially when you can combine men and women in one team.

You can enjoy tennis more, being all together on the same bench, cheering each other on and, you know, jumping up there on the chairs. I had a couple of events like this, and it’s something you really want to play and want to do because it’s different from any other tournament,» Radwanska explained.
