Disturbing news about Iga Świątek.  The expert pointed to the mental sphere

Iga Świątek finished the WTA 1000 tournament in Miami in the fourth round. Joanna Sakowicz-Kostecka, Canal+ Sport expert, indicated the reasons for the Pole's defeat.

After winning the WTA 1000 tournament in Indian Wells, the leader of the WTA ranking clearly wanted to follow suit and win the Sunshine Double mini-series. However, the result from 2022 could not be repeated, because the Pole lost in the fourth round of the competition in Miami.

Iga Świątek eliminated in Florida by the Russian

Ekaterina Aleksandrova turned out to be better than the best tennis player in the world. The Pole lost in two sets 4:6, 2:6. After Świątek, it was already visible in the previous match that her tennis level had dropped. A lot of nervousness on the court, combined with a lot of the Pole's own mistakes, but it was enough for the less experienced Linda Noskova. The Czech lost, but the Russian couldn't be outplayed by the slightly worse fit Świątek.

The situation was commented on by Canal+ Sport expert, former tennis player, Joanna Sakowicz-Kostecka. Referring to what could be heard from Tomasz Wiktorowski. This time, Coach Świątek was unable to overcome the crisis on the Polish woman's court.

– You can't blame the camp for not reacting. Tomasz Wiktorowski at one point said: “What should we do if she is late for everything?” It was visible (…) It wasn't physical fatigue, but mental fatigue. Iga probably didn't know that she could join Steffi Graf. There could be many more components than we think – admitted Sakowicz-Kostecka, quoted by Interia.

Hubert Hurkacz also dropped out of the tournament in Miami

On the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, Polish time, the best Polish singles player also lost in Florida. Hubert Hurkacz failed to defeat Grigor Dimitrov after a three-set battle. The Wroclaw native has not been able to find a solution to his Bulgarian opponent for a long time. It was no different during the tournament in Miami.

Hurkacz is a player who is in the top ten of the ATP rankings. However, the Pole must appear as often as possible in the decisive phases of the most important tournaments in the calendar. This is the only way “Hubi” will maintain its high position in the world.
