Iga Swiatek explains how she tamed Caroline Garcia’s aggressive style of play


World No.1 Iga Swiatek said she was ready for Caroline Garcia’s aggressive style of play as the Pole was happy with how she handled business against the Frenchwoman. In her second group stage match at the WTA Finals, Swiatek beat Garcia 6-3, 6-2 to improve to 2-0 in Fort Worth and seal a spot in the semifinal.

Swiatek, who lost to Garcia in Warsaw this summer, entered her WTA Finals match knowing what to expect and responded much better this time than she did three months ago. After the match, Swiatek was asked how he managed to handle the pressure from Garcia.

«Do not Cry?» Swiatek joked after the match, according to the WTA website. “Because, yeah, she was putting a lot of pressure and putting a lot of speed on her balls. She was ready for it.”

Swiatek feels her approach is better at the WTA Finals

Three weeks ago, Swiatek won the San Diego Open.

But en route to winning San Diego, Swiatek played three sets in three of his four matches. This week at the WTA Finals, Swiatek has won two matches in straight sets. «In San Diego, I felt like I needed to, I don’t know, lose a set to have a different level of focus.

Maybe because he was tired. Here I feel that I can give everything. It is the last tournament of the season. I’m giving it 100% physically and mentally,» Swiatek told WTA Insider.

By beating Garcia and Daria Kasatkina, Swiatek secured a spot in the semifinal of the WTA Finals.

Swiatek, 21, has had a very dominant season as he now has a strong chance of winning his ninth title of the year. After winning two Grand Slam titles and reaching the No. 1 ranking, Swiatek would love to end her year by winning her first WTA Finals title.
