"Gangsterka" went to a party before the match against Świątek.  That's how she explained it

Yulia Putintseva is a controversial figure in the tennis world. An interesting anecdote related to the Kazakh woman was told by Dawid Celt in the “Break Point” program.

Iga Świątek has been at such a high level for several seasons that some rivals tremble before the match with the Pole. We saw the first examples of our player's dominance two years ago, when she won two Grand Slam tournaments and entered the first place in the WTA ranking. It took place on April 4, 2022. From that moment on, she lost her leading position for only a few weeks to Aryna Sabalenka. She added many trophies to her tally along the way. An interesting situation took place at the turn of 2022 and 2023, when Świątek took part in the United Cup, a mixed teams tournament.

Yulia Putintseva went to a party

Back then, Poland played against Kazakhstan. The representative of the rival team, Yulia Putintseva, knew perfectly well that she would have to face Świątek. She decided on controversial behavior, which Dawid Celt, captain of the Polish national team, talked about in the “Break Point” program.

– The day before our match against Kazakhstan, and it was known that Iga was playing with Putintseva, Kazashka was at a party somewhere, came back wearing glasses and walked around the courts wearing them – said Celt.

– We asked her if she was actually at the party. She replied: “What difference does it make whether I get a bicycle or half a bicycle. It's obvious that I won't win anyway,” she added.

The “bicycle” Celt mentioned is the colloquial name for the 6-0, 6-0 result. Świątek has ended matches with such a result more than once in her career. Ultimately, Putintseva lost to our tennis player 1:6, 3:6. It ended with a certain triumph for Świątek.

Putintseva calls herself a “gangster”

For some time now, Putintseva has been calling herself a “gangster”. It's about the dirty games he uses on the court to depress his opponents. Such actions make Kazashka disliked by most of the community. Her methods could be seen this year during the clash with Świątek at Indian Wells. However, it was of no use then, because the Polish woman was better. Recently, both women competed in Rome, where Putintseva also had to acknowledge the superiority of the leader of the ranking.
