Iga Świątek is the main favorite for the Olympic gold.  "He will play in the place he loves"

Iga Świątek was unexpectedly quickly eliminated from the tournament in Miami. However, there is nothing to worry about. More challenges are coming.

Iga Świątek remains the clear leader of the WTA rankings. This year, the Pole has already won tournaments in Doha and Indian Wells. In the last competition in Miami, she was eliminated in the fourth round after losing to Ekaterina Aleksandrova. In an interview with the website sport.tvp.pl, the first coach of the Raszyn team, Artur Szostaczko, admitted that there was no reason to worry, and Świątek simply needed rest. Important words were also said about the future

Iga Świątek returns to her favorite surface

In the near future, the WTA Tour will begin a series of tournaments on clay, which is the one on which Świątek feels best. This year, she is defending her titles on the courts in Stuttgart and Paris, where she has won three Grand Slam events in total.

Artur Szostaczko believes that perhaps the most important clay competitions for the Pole will be those that will take place at the turn of July and August. We are, of course, talking about the Olympic Games in the capital of France. It so happens that the Roland Garros Grand Slam and the Olympic Games will be separated by a short period of play on grass courts. The Olympic championship is a great dream of the leader of the world ranking, and perhaps it will come true.

– He will play in the place he loves. Paris is a special city for her. I assume that she can play even better, so I won't deny that she is in the best moment of her career, but she is getting better every month. She will be one of the main favorites for the Olympic gold medal. What matters is whether it can bear this burden. The pressure is enormous, said Artur Szostaczko.

Świątek is a different player than three years ago

The 22-year-old will not remember the last Olympic Games in Tokyo fondly. She was supposed to fight for a medal, but it ended in the second round. Szostaczko recalls that Świątek was a teenager back then, and now she will enter the competition with a completely new level of experience. She has a great chance to make history, because no male or female tennis player has ever won Olympic gold. A place on the podium would also be a great success.
