Every Swiatek He had already won big tournaments during the season, but he has achieved great results in this 2022 and the last win in San Diego has given him the eighth title of the season. An extraordinary year with a record of victories and conquest of Grand Slam tournaments such as Roland Garros and the US Open.
The retirement of Australian number one Ashleigh Barty has certainly helped and Iga is now the dominator of the Tour. For this and much more, the young Pole is the big favorite for the WTA Finals that will begin these days.
Iga Swiatek spoke at the press conference and covered many topics, commenting among other things on the doping case involving Simona Halep. Iga Swiatek’s words in conference These are her words in the conference: «The conditions on the court are totally different and I have to adapt to the balls.
I have to put more energy and control the shots, in San Diego I was very comfortable with the balls and I didn’t think about it at all. However, the preparation went well and we did everything we had planned. Now I feel fresh and that’s what counts, I can give everything during the matches.
I must say that in this part of the season I am not training much and I also think about enjoying the matches. The competition? I accepted that I can’t always be 100% competitive, sometimes you feel that the Grand Slam tournaments feel more than the smaller ones but I want to win everywhere and I always give my best.
During my career I have perceived moments in which I did not feel very motivated, I must say that especially when I played on grass I felt more confused than motivated. But the adrenaline is still the same.» Iga then commented on Simona Halep’s positivity towards doping, announced in recent days: «It’s all very confusing because I never expected to hear that news.
I know Simona as a very correct person and I have always taken her as an example. Kind of sad for me and I think for the fans, hopefully she can come clean soon.»
