Swiatek calls for calm: “It doesn’t mean my tennis will be perfect”

The Polish Iga Swiatekwho yesterday celebrated 100 weeks as world number one and now faces the clay of Madrid, his favorite surface, warned that none of this meant his tennis was “going to be perfect”.

“I have never taken it for granted (that it would go well) in these tournamentsbecause last year I lost here and in Rome,” he said after training at Madrid’s Caja Mágica.

“You won’t win in all tournaments today. Just because it’s my favorite surface does not mean that my tennis is going to be perfect, because the tour is intense,” said the ranking leader, who recalled that, in addition, the time in the preparation of each appointment “is not unlimited.” “Sometimes you have to go out with what you have that day,” he noted.

Regarding his longtime number one title, Swiatek said he didn’t expect it, but he felt proud.

“Especially last year, back to the number that happened unpredictably. “I’m proud of myself for being able to cope with all the pressure that comes with it,” he said.

Swiatek joins the praise expressed in recent days on the circuit towards the Spaniard Garbiñe Muguruza, who on Saturday announced her retirement – “when I was young, I saw her successes and I thought that she might be the my favorite player” – and also commented on her recent contract with a beauty products firm.

“I’m not the kind of person who wears makeup every day and I’m not sure I fit their vision. I felt really good about the shoot we did, after Australia, when I was a little sad, and it gave me the perspective that it’s worth working for if you have opportunities like that. “It’s a lot of fun and a little crazy,” he said.
