Iga Świątek chose Aryna Sabalenka.  A funny scene with a Polish woman

Iga Świątek will start playing in the WTA 1000 in Dubai on Tuesday (February 20). The Pole appeared at Sunday's press conference, answering many questions.

Iga Świątek won the WTA 1000 tournament in Doha on Saturday (February 17). The Pole won for the third time in a row here, confirming that she feels good competing in the Middle East. Now it's time to test yourself in Qatar, specifically in Dubai. Last year (2023), Świątek only lost in the final.

Iga Świątek about her band with Aryna Sabalenka

However, before the world leader takes to the court, the Pole met journalists at a press conference. On Sunday (February 18), she answered questions in Dubai, quickly moving from happy Doha.

Świątek received a question about the NBA basketball festival taking place this weekend. All-Star Weekend is taking place in Indianapolis. He took part in, among others: Polish Jeremy Sochan, San Antonio Spurs player.

As it turned out, the Pole is not a basketball specialist from the USA.

– I don't really watch it. I don't really watch the NBA. All-Star? I don't know the best basketball players in the league. They form one team at All-Star? (…) I am European, I don't watch the NBA – Świątek admitted with a smile.

When asked who she would choose for the All-Star team, given the choice of tennis players, the Pole made a quick selection. Among those mentioned was Aryna Sabalenka, Świątek's biggest rival, looking at the WTA ranking.

– But if I had to choose, I would say: Aryna, Novak, Sinner, Alcaraz, Jelena and Ons. I.e. this is the obvious answer. And Rafa – said the Polish champion.
